Complex models in science and engineering need better techniques to execute simulations efficiently. The Discrete-Event System Specification (DEVS) formalism, a well-known technique for modeling and simulation, has been enhanced by executing in parallel computers. Here, we present the design and implementation of a parallel version of the Cadmium DEVS simulator. We conducted empirical evaluation for executing the protocol in multithreading architectures and discuss performance by applying these techniques in real problems.
