—Currently, simulation has become an essential part of design, acquisition, manufacturing, and maintenance. Furthermore, as systems are becoming large, complex, and distributed, computational demand on simulation becomes large and distributed. Matlab is a widely-used, powerful tool and becomes a standard in the computational part of computationally intensive simulations. In distributed simulations, one of the most well- known and widely-used standard is HLA (High Level Architecture). HLA is a standard for distributed simulation that is defined in IEEE 1516 and SISO. In distributed environments, data exchange between the heterogeneous entities is important. However, OMT (Object Model Template) table, which is assumed to follow the HLA standard, and Matlab/Simulink are not compatible with each other. In this paper, we develop a tool for creating, editing, importing, and exporting OMT tables on Matlab/Simulink. Since the format of xml is a standard for HLA, we also use xml for our standard format for importing and exporting for viewer / editor. We expect that the result here will be very helpful for the integration of HLA and Matlab/Simulink.
