Theoretical and conceptual constructs for the design of a specification language that generates intelligent discrete next-event simulations is presented. Such a specification language would facilitate rapid prototyping of discrete simulation models. The language enforces a rigorous, disciplined approach to formulation of simulation models. The language documents and stores each software component so that it could be reused. Critical to the definition of such a language is the creation of a universal set of icon primitives and a collection of grammar rules for concatenation of primitives into 'words'.
