This paper presents the requirements development (including requirement creep), selection, and integration of a small commercial off the shelf (COTS) computer into existing simulation systems that are based on the Applied Dynamics ADvantage Framework. A comparison of the increased processing and modeling capability will be presented. Finally, changes in the existing process are shown with a discussion of modeling tradeoffs.
