Abstract—Component based modeling has been a research hotpot in the area of Modeling and Simulation for a long time. In order to increase the reusability and interoperability of models, this paper put forward a component based modeling framework called BOM Modeling Framework (BMF) based on BOM specification. The structure, principles, formalisms and behaviors of BMF were presented in detail first. The description and framework of Atomic BOM model and coupled BOM model in BMF were studied in succession. At last, the developing process of BMF models was introduced. The prototype developed showed that BMF could not only promote the reusability and interoperability of models but also improve the efficiency and easy the process of M&S.
