From Ameise-en

The AMEISE - System consists of several components. The AMEISE client offers a lot of features, and there is also a tool for creating assessment-reports (AORTA). The following short viewlets demonstrate the most important navigation abilities and supporting components (from a didactic point of view) during and after a simulation run. If you don't know AMEISE, please start with the general introduction of the AMEISE client.

AMEISE Client

General Introduction

AMEISE Client (Duration ~ 5 min.)

  • Presents a short simulation run.
  • No prior knowledge is required.

Navigation Options

Ameise Wall (Duration ~ 30 sec., At the moment in German only)

  • Part of the AMEISE Client.
  • Visualizes the steps of a simulation run on a "Perspective Wall".

TreeView (Duration ~ 30 sec., At the moment in German only)

  • Part of the AMEISE Client.
  • Visualizes the steps of a simulation run in a tree-like structure.

Supervising Components

Advisor (Duration ~ 30 sec., At the moment in German only)

  • Part of the AMEISE Client (optional).
  • The advisor provides feedback about the current simulation run and gives advice on how to improve the simulation results.

PhaseView (Duration ~ 30 sec., At the moment in German only)

  • Part of the AMEISE Client.
  • This component visualizes the phases of a simulation run in a bar chart.

Friendly Peer (Duration ~ 30 sec., At the moment in German only)

  • Part of the AMEISE Client (optional).
  • An agent, running in the background, and observing the simulation run. When activates, it provides information about possible problems on the fly.

Rollback (Duration ~ 45 sec., At the moment in German only)

  • Part of the AMEISE Client (optional).
  • Both, the tree view and the phase view component, provide a feature to move back to an earlier point of time during a simulation run. With it one can try out different simulation strategies.


Tools

AORTA (Duration ~ 1 min., At the moment in German only))

  • Java-based tool for creating an assessment report and exporting it to a PDF file.
  • No prior knowledge is required.
