Modelling and Simulation are the two important steps in the design
cycle of most of the control systems. This paper presents the
architectural details for building an ODMCS (Oil Discharge Monitoring
& Control System) simulator with animated graphical output. Some of
the application areas of such software are also discussed.
Additionally, it presents a novel approach towards completely
automating the process of oily water discharge from oil tankers. The
software is designed using advanced object oriented programming (OOP)
approach. The important attributes of various classes developed to
simulate various subsystems in the ODMCS are also discussed. The
software was designed, developed and tested using C++ programming
