Reusing a simulation or parts of a simulation is difficult as simulations are tightly coupled to a specific domain or even to the system that is analysed by the simulation. Analysing the architectural structure of a simulation feature is merely enough to identify whether it can be reused in another simulation. Besides the structure (i.e., architectural elements like classes and interfaces) of a simulation feature, the behaviour must also match for it to be reused. An approach that compares simulation features needs to consider both, the structure as well as the behaviour. In this paper, we introduce a specification approach that allows simulation developers to model a simulations structure and behaviour with a domain-specific modelling language. The specification is used to compare a simulation or parts of a simulation to identify features that can be reused. We specify features of an open-source simulation with our approach and we provide an approach to compare features based on our specification. The results show, that our approach is able to find similar features based on their architectural structure and behaviour. Our approach enables developers to identify and then reuse simulation features.
