Das Simulationsprogramm Das Simulationsprogramm besteht aus verschiedenen Programmstücken, die einzeln aufgerufen werden können und die die Zustandsübergänge durch Modifikation der Datenbereiche vornehmen. * Die Ablaufkontrolle Die Ablaufkontrolle verfügt über eine Liste, die angibt, welches Programmstück zu welcher Zeit aufgerufen werden muB. 1 System und Modell 18 • Die Simulationsuhr Die Simulationsuhr gibt die Zeit an. Sie wird in diskreten Schritten weitergeschaltet. Die Ablaufkontrolle überwacht sie, um entscheiden zu können, welche Zustandsübergänge durchgeführt werden sollen.

Erfolgt Verdrängung, so wird in diesem Feld vermerkt, zu welchem Service-Element die Transaction bei der Wiederbelegung zurückkehren muB. TR(LTR,8) Blockierungszeitpunkt In diesem Feld steht der Zeitpunkt, zu dem eine Transaction an einer Station blockiert worden ist. Der Blockierungszeitpunkt wird gelegentlich von der Policy benötigt, wenn entschieden werden muB, in welcher Reihenfolge die Transactions wieder aktiviert werden sollen. TR(LTR,9) Nummer der Warteschlangen Um das Verhalten der Transaction statistisch auswerten zu können, stellt GPSS-F Queues zur Verfügung.

L System und Modell Die Programmstücke, die die Systemübergänge vornehmen, sind in GPSS-F zu Unterprogrammen zusammengefaBt.
