The premise of this work is that more guidance is required for the application of the simultaneous simulation of material flows and energy flows. This assumption is supported by the findings of a systematic review which showed great diversity in earlier published case studies. Yet, other existing procedure models provide little advice regarding the manifestations of specific details of a simulation study. This paper presents a novel procedure model that is meant to increase the efficiency in simulation projects by providing detailed and consistent guidance for design choices in a simulation study. Selected results of its application are shown exemplarily.
