Describes the motivation, the initial implementation and tests carried out during the development of a combined discrete‐time and continuous‐simulation system intended primarily for the simulation of hybrid systems in manufacturing processes. The system, which is still under development, is the product of fusing two existing and independently developed packages, and the current implementation serves as a pilot design for evaluating the issues involved, both in terms of product development and in terms of the theoretical difficulties in combining discrete‐event and continuous‐time systems. The initial design has already been implemented and test simulations performed. Provides a superficial description of the system interface which is predominantly based on the existing interface of the discrete‐event simulator.
