The simol modeling language for simulation and (Re-)Configuration From automotive and up to telecommunication industry, configuration and simulation are used for solving complex problems connected to the ever growing number of components, which have to work together. To assist these needs, many tools are nowadays available. Modeling languages like Matlab/Simulink or Modelica are often used to model the dependencies between the components of physical systems. However these are less suitable for the area of knowledge-based systems. In this paper, we present a modeling language, which combines the two different directions. SiMoL is an object-oriented language that allows representing systems comprising basic and hierarchical components. We state the syntax and the semantics of the language, referring also to the implementation of SiMoL, which is based on the MINION constraint solver. Furthermore, we discuss how the obtained model can be used for simulation and re-configuration.
