SLAM is one of the more popular simulation languages for modeling discrete systems and there have been a few references in the literature to mining systems modeled using this language.
An advantage of using a simulation language is that the model can be extended to incorporate additional features when necessary.

Over time, the development of special simulation languages, massive increase of the computer power along with reducing the operating cost calculation and the progress registered in the simulation methodologies have turned the simulation into a tool widely used and accepted in many areas.
They are activity-based formalism, process-oriented simulation languages, state-based modeling formalism, and event-based modeling formalism.
Simulation languages usually collect all possible data while the along the simulation run, and most of them offer tools for displaying this information, using simple text reports and probably statistics graphs, tables and functions.
With the new Maxwell release, Ansoft delivers the second in the plan of development milestones for integrating Ansoft's core strength of electromagnetic-field simulation with SIMPLORER(R), its new system analysis tool, which provides circuit, block diagram, and state-machine simulation languages.
Simulation languages do not offer an immediate solution.
General topics of the papers include network modeling and simulation, advances in methodology and practices, simulation languages, tools, environments, VLSI circuit simulation, parallel and distributed simulation, and artificial intelligence.
