Abstract for: Component models as plug-in's for system dynamics models

On this poster we will present our Work-In-Progress on connecting compoent models tot system dynamics models. We do this within the context of asset management, which means physical assets (e.g. ship, road network) are the systems and components (e.g. diesel engine, compressor, steel girder) are physical components as part of the asset. The technical condition of assets degrades because of their use. This degradation of the system as a whole is based on the degradation of the components/parts in the asset. For those components componentmodels are available whcih describe the degradation behaviour. This can be 'plugged-in' in the system dynamics model which simulates the degradation behaviour of the asset as a whole technical system. It will show a Multi-modelling, hybrid modelling approach.
