This paper is an attempt to complement service-oriented simulation with the timing concept of the DEVS formalism. One of the key features of DEVS is its timing specification; however, currently timing information is not available in service-oriented models such as WSDL and BPEL yet. This paper presents timing specification and associated analysis techniques for PSML, a service-oriented modeling language. Specifically, timing constraints such as delays, processing time, deadlines among elements can be specified, and consistency among timing constraints can be verified. The timing information can be used for static analysis to estimate time needed as well as dynamically to verify runtime behavior of service-oriented application.
