This presentation describes a Modeling and Simulation (M&S) framework for building System of Systems (SoS) simulations, known as Orchestrated Simulation through Modeling (OSM). This framework allows Discrete Event System Specification (DEVS) M&S components and output visualizations to be developed separately as plug-ins and combined to form a complete system. Independently developed plug-ins can be added and removed as desired to dramatically change the system. With the OSM framework, an evolutionary System of Systems can be intelligently created by a community. Each community member only needs to fully understand the pieces they develop. With this framework, we can now define a software architecture that allows the collection and graphing of SoS metrics in one location such that these metrics can then be used to evaluate the emergent behavior of the SoS. This can be accomplished by architecting swappable and reusable Simulators and Experimental Frames to provide the changing of these elements without any of the other elements, including the models, having to change. This research involves determining if these collected metrics will enable the identification and analysis of emergent behavior among the interactions of the models (component systems).
