The introduction of real modularity in simulation languages as it is defined in general purpose programming languages, provides possibilities for easier reuse and better quality of submodels. This paper presents two basic rules/lemmas that must be followed by the developer of a modular dynamic simulation language. The lemmas were empirically tested in the dynamic modular object-oriented simulation language OOSlim. The findings indicate that, in contrast to most of the contemporary simulation language implementations, the flat sorting process must be performed at run time.
