The introduced multilevel reified (temporal-causal) network architecture is the basis of the implementation of a dedicated software environment developed by the author in Matlab. The environment includes a combination function library and a generic computational reified network engine. It uses role matrices specifying the characteristics for the designed network model as input. Based on this input, the computational reified network engine can be used to generate simulations for the network model, thereby using combination functions from the library. In this chapter, this software environment is described in more detail.
