With this paper the authors are announcing development in progress on a simulation programming language which they have named SODAS ( Structure Oriented Description and Simulation). Motivation for the development is provided by an opening discussion of desirable attributes of a language for general system design. A brief description of SODAS syntax and semantics follows, and then a SODAS program for simulation of a highway traffic control system, a fairly detailed example of how the language fulfills the desired objectives.
