The development of a multimodal interactive simulation is a very elaborate task due to the various complex software components involved, which run simultaneously at very high rates with maximum CPU load. In this work, we propose a multimodal parallel simulation framework called SoFMIS to create rapid interactive simulations such as surgical simulations. Our framework offers great flexibility and customization allowing simulation developers and researchers to concentrate on the simulation logic rather than component development.
