We have developed a Modelling and Simulation platform for technical evaluation of Electronic Toll Collection on Motor Highways. This platform is used in a project of the Dutch government to assess the technical feasibility of Toll Collection systems proposed by industry. Motivated by this work we introduce the concept of High Performance Discrete Event Simulations to evaluate the performance of Complex Industrial Systems. We assume that the elements have well-known behaviour, and demand that the interaction between the elements is well-known and their state changes at pre-definable time intervals. As a result we can model the total complex system as a discrete event model. We present the case of Automatic Debiting Systems for Electronic Toll Collection and introduce the modelling approach, the simulation environment (ADS-SIM), and discuss the need for HPC to carry out such simulations.
