Frameworks and other product categories
Figure: Product categories

The purpose of a framework is the integration of other parties’ modules into a well designed data flow and controlling the execution of each module during a simulation run. Frameworks come in different flavors and are somewhat hard to compare. For this reason, our rating criteria are quite high level but still sufficiently detailed in order to assess a framework’s fitness for the typical use cases.


The rating criteria for Frameworks can be found on our Rating Policies page.


We do not provide any reviews in this category as of now. But we clearly see commercial candidates like “MathWorks Simulink“, “AVL Model.CONNECT” and similar as targets for this category.

Missing a Product?

Please let us know if you are interested in having us review a specific product. Provided it fits our scope and in case it’s a free and open source product, things will be easy and we will be happy to execute your request asap. For products outside our scope we might need to discuss the relevance with you first. For fully commercial products we might need to contact the vendor and clarify access to further information, an evaluation copy etc. But we’ll happy to do this – it’s our task and “mission”.
