Dear RIF Team,

We are currently working on our Master Thesis at Ghent University. For this
thesis we have to make a Discrete Event Simulation to test a software in
which an ontology is used. The software is used in a hospital or a
rest-home settlement. It helps assigning the correct caregivers to a call
for help made by a patient so that these caregivers are used as efficient
as possible. The rule set is included in the ontology and is written in
Jena Rules.

The intention is to have a manual, but easy, transition from the Jena rules
to the rules in the software in the DES. In a later stadium this transition
could be done automatically. We have to establish a smooth transition from
RIF to the DES software, and if possible, also in the opposite direction.

At present, we are looking at FlexSim to simulate the hospital settings. In
FlexSim there is a possibility to work with FlexScript or C++. FlexScript
is a language only used by FlexSim, but very similar to C++. An example of
FlexScript is shown in the attached file.

Could you provide us any more information about RIF and its compatibility
with C++/FlexScript? Do you have for example any similar experience with
this problem?

Kind Regards
Pieter Demyttenare
