A modelling and simulation environment for intelligent machine architectures (IMA) should be able to represent both the symbolic and the numeric processing required in IMAs at various levels of abstraction. It should make useful predictions about an analyzed system in a time that is short compared to the time needed to build and test the actual system. Also, it should support modular construction and reuse of IMA component models. DEVS-Scheme is a knowledge-based, object-oriented, simulation environment to support design of IMAs. We show how it satisfies the given requirements. An example of an IMA developed in the DEVS-Scheme environment is discussed to illustrate its concepts and operation.
