Abstract: Many consider simulation to be a highly specialist activity: it is difficult to undertake and is even more difficult to understand its outcomes. The new version of the business process modeling tool Protos attempts to more closely integrate modeling and simulation facilities into one tool. The assumed benefit is that business professionals may more easily undertake simulation experiments when they are enabled with the same tool to extend their existing process models to carry out simulation experiments. This paper explains how the existing engine of the Petri-net based tool ExSpect is integrated into Protos 7.0. It also shows the extended user interface of Protos and the simulation reports it generates.
