Complexity associated with the design of experiments for simulation models can be reduced through visualization. DEVS-Suite, a new generation of the DEVS Tracking Envi-ronment which itself was extended from DEVSJAVA, sup-ports visual design of experiments and introduces simula-tion data visualization. Data generated by the selected models can be collected dynamically and displayed as time-based trajectories. These capabilities complement animation of DEVS model components and their interactions. A ser-vice-oriented software system is modeled to illustrate the novel modeling features for DEVS simulations. Another ex-ample is developed in Ptolemy II and SimEvents to show the reduced visual complexity afforded by DEVS-Suite.
