Describes how to develop a visual interactive simulation model for flexible manufacturing systems. SIMPLE_1, an integrated modelling environment, is selected as the simulation language due to several of its innovative features. A physical simulator for a flexible manufacturing system is also chosen as the target to demonstrate the modelling process of the visual interactive simulation. The results of this study may provide industrial designers with a design and planning tool.
