Abstract

Describing scenarios is a promising approach to draw images of manufacturing industry toward a sustainable society, whereas the images are still vague. Sustainable Society Scenario (3S) Simulator aims to support understanding, describing, and analyzing sustainability scenarios. This paper proposes a method for describing "dynamic scenarios" by connecting scenarios and their associated simulators. Our approach includes to structuralize scenarios for clarifying the relationship between a scenario and its simulators and to develop a mechanism of exchanging data between them. A case study illustrates that the proposed method succeeds in articulating rationales, described as texts in a scenario, for input data of a simulation. Also, the simulation results are successfully changed by changing simulation assumptions in the original scenario. The case study indicates that, as a result, the method enables to reuse a scenario and its simulator simultaneously.
