Frequent plant lay-out and process automation changes is becoming more and more critical for production efficiency and reliability in companies with self developed or induced product design changes. The paper presents VIRSIM (VIrtual reality and SIMulation), a methodology supporting the complete reengineering process based on GIM (GRAI Integrated Methodology) and IEM (Integrated Enterprise Modeling), and the associated software tool consisting of five subsystems, some of them commercial available low cost software packages. Potential interested industries are automotive components-makers and those with large production engineering departments in general.
