The main applications presented in the following example are the monitoring of a dynamically changing process scheme; the implication of the simulation of dynamic planning capabilities; and the potential use of the simulation results for process-related decision-making.The example represents an NPD environment, where process activities are derived from the product structure and the relations between product components, which are subject to changes during the design as new knowledge becomes available.
