Business Simulation by Using Events from Pre-Conceptual Schemas

Business simulation is an interactive learning experience for simplifying and summarizing real systems. Events occur in such systems for changing states of processes and controlling system behavior. Some computational models are used in business simulation for recognizing events and processes from a domain and developing software systems. However, such models lack components for simulating business by using events. We propose business simulation by using events from pre-conceptual schemas (PSs). Such schemas are conceptual models for representing a business domain, which include simulation components based on mathematical notation. Thus, we represent a PS as simulation model for recognizing events in a seafood service monitoring system. Simulating events by using PSs allows for identifying the future system behavior and functionality.
