The ability of a set of modeling and simulation to provide services to and accept services from other modeling and simulation, and to use the services for exchange enabling them to operate effectively together. [JP 1-02] 5. The capability to provide useful and cost-effective interchange of electronic data among, e.g. , different signal formats, transmission media, applications, industries, or performance levels.   6.  The ability of two or more systems to exchange information and to mutually use the information that has been exchanged [POSIX.0].
