This paper explains the chosen methodology for software design of the Multi-Agent Transport Simulation, MATSim. The design focusses on standard architectures and design patterns to ease usability and improve extensibility of the software, Potential for extension is discussed using an example implementation of a traffic signal control module. Both, MATSim and the extension are using the same concepts for software architecture.
