Part of CAPE-OPEN standard versions 1.0 and 1.1.

The COSE (CAPE-OPEN Simulation Environment) Interfaces or PME Interfaces are horizontal interface specifications. They define services provided by CAPE-OPEN compliant PMEs. Services of general use are defined, such as diagnostics and Material Template system in order to be called by any CAPE-OPEN PMC using a callback pattern.

COSE Simulation Context Interface SpecificationCOSE_Simulation_Context_Interface (current document: issued in August 2003)

The Diagnostic interface allows communication of verbose information from the PMC to the PME (and hence to the user). PMCs should be able to log or display information to the user while executing a flowsheet
The Material Template interface provides the mechanisms for accessing CAPE-OPEN Property Packages managed by the COSE, in order to allow PMCs to directly choose and configure material objects as needed.
The COSE Utilities provide a small list of other useful functions, in particular the FORTRAN Channel selection which prevents FORTRAN-based PMCs from sending output to channels already used by the COSE. This document results from polishing the document issued by the Global CAPE-OPEN project. No change in design.
