The increasing autonomy, complexity, and decentralisation of modern systems require an increasing reliance on large-scale simulation to cope with the social, technical, economic, and environmental challenges of the world we live in. These large-scale simulations aid in the understanding of processes and design of complex systems. The Internet of Simulation (IoS) is an emerging trend towards a decentralised ecosystem of geographical disparate simulations that are readily combined to form more complex simulations. This chapter explores some of the challenges in implementing this distributed simulation system and its use in design, maintenance, analysis, and training of complex systems. These include the management of complex interactions between integrated simulation components and wider operational challenges. The contextualised applications of IoS and some of the relevant issues' post-deployment are discussed.
