Abstract: COTS Simulation Package Interoperability is a problem that has been studied by the Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization’s (SISO) COTS Simulation Package Interoperability Product Development Group (CSPI PDG). The UK National Blood Service maintains the supply chain of blood from donor to hospital. The simulation of this supply chain is vital to better support decisons made for an extremely scarce resource. Such models are very large and can take a very long time to execute. This paper investigates whether or not CSPI PDG standards can be used to create a distributed simulation of this supply chain and if a speed up can be achieved. The results show that for larger blood supply chain models this is the case.
