The formal languages become important tools since they allow the complete understanding of the model and help in its implementation. However only a few simulation tools allow an automatic execution of a simulation model based in a formalization of the system. Specification and Description Language is a modern object oriented graphical formal language that allows the definition of distributed systems. It has focused on the modeling of reactive, state/event driven systems, and has been standardized by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) in the Z.100. Since it is a graphical formalism simplifies the understanding of the model. In this paper we show how we can use Specification and Description Language to represent a discrete simulation model. We propose a solution, implemented in SDLPS, regarding how to manage the time in Specification and Description Language. Also, we show how SDLPS infrastructure allows a distribute simulation of the models.
