So far simulators in connection with production processes and material flow systems are primarily used as design instruments and planning support tools. Recently new application areas developed: Some prototypical applications have shown the feasibility of applying simulation for the task of developing and testing of control software. This paper will give a short survey of existing systems, both special purpose and modified conventional simulators and derive requirements for a new generally applicable simulator. We will outline the concepts behind CREATE!, our approach to match the requirments stated before.
