Today, making decisions in a distributed production system, like a Virtual Enterprise [VE], have few support tools. This paper discusses how Discrete Event Simulation [DES] can be used in a VE environment. A DES model was built involving multiple developers who were individually responsible for one part of the model. In this case study, incremental development methodology has been used together with a methodology for conducting DES projects. The paper presents reflections from the developers and gives recommendations for applying DES on a VE. The most important reflections were to formulate a well defined goal for the project as a whole, to start with integration as early as possible, and to have tangible goals.
