This chapter introduces the basic concepts of distributed simulation applied to real life industrial cases with particular reference to IEEE 1516 High Level Architecture(HLA): one of de facto standards for distributed simulation. Starting from a concise introduction HLA, the chapter proposes a simple hands-on with a complete implementation example of HLA. Successfully achieved the ability to create small federations, the reader is guided by two real life application of distributed simulation: the first is related to a supply chain modeling for the aerospace industry while the second one is focused on logistic platforms modeling. The authors have edited this chapter keeping in mind usual difficulties that can be encountered in real life projects: for such purpose a reference implementation and full code examples are provided in order to ensure a smooth but effective learning curve. The reader will also find suggestions for proper management of HLA-based simulation projects.
