Paper Abstract

Simulation in general is the operation of imitating a real thing such as a process. Simulation is known for its importance in the fields of research and operation management. It is used in many fields such as engineering, training etc. This survey is interested in the field of scientific simulation of business systems. Business process simulation is used to give the business owners a real view of their systems in certain aspects such as system's behavior, cost of resources, return on investment, and the time each process will take. By trying different input alternatives, business process simulation is usually used to save the costs of having a real system with potential problems. This paper emphasizes on business process simulation tools, comparing them according to certain evaluation criteria and presenting the recommended applications for each tool.
