As a part of this, work is underway toward the development of an analytical model of the linacs using the methodology of Hamiltonian based beam envelope dynamics. The TRIUMF High-Level Applications (HLA) project has been developing software that allows direct interfacing with the control system. The envelope code TRANSOPTR is now being extended to simulate the ISAC-II Superconducting Linac. Within the emerging HLA framework, this will allow for automated phasing and tuning of the linac. The steps of the model development will be presented in this contribution.
