This special issue of the Journal of Industrial Engineering and Management is focused on new trends in Process Simulation and Modeling.Many business processes are so complex, interconnected and subject to variability. For those reasons, it is hard to understand the components evolution and interactions within the business processes without a dynamic model. Simulation and modeling approach is a good choice to predict processes performance, to compare alternatives and to establish the effect of several scenarios on performance. Moreover, if a process does not yet exist, or company is considering a new implementation, a simulation model can give a clue how well the proposed process will perform. In addition, process simulation and modeling is a growing and exciting research field.
