Simulation is considered a key component for business process management suites. Within business process management, simulation can be readily used for both process design, and ongoing improvement. Despite the predictive capabilities of simulation, the lack of wide scale adoption within business process management compared with what might be expected suggests that more can be done to better integrate, and use, simulation with business process management suites. While mature standards exist for the definitions of the business processes, there is a lack of standards for defining business process simulation parameters.
