Abstract

The explicit representation of a conceptual model allows it to be communicated and analyzed by the stakeholders in a simulation project. When communication involves different types of stakeholders, a good representation that can be understood by all stakeholders is essential. Many existing methods for the conceptual model representation of agent-based simulation models are less friendly to business users. This paper advocates use of the Business Process Model and Notation diagrams for agent-based simulation conceptual model representation in the context of business applications. This paper also proposes a BPMN pattern that provides visual representation of an agent and its behavior represented as a set of internal and external functions.
