The main objective of the TIMS (TMN-based Information Model Simulator) project is the simulation /prototyping of TMN Information Models (IM). The main contribution of the project is the definition of Managed Object Behavior Formalization paradigm based on relationships modeling : the Behavior Language (BL). Rather than describing its features one by one, TIMS BL is presented, in a tutorial approach, through the modeling of a particular System Management Function (SMF) : the Event Report Management Function (ERMF).
