This paper presents an executable architecture tool for the modeling and simulation of operational process models using MATLAB. The new capability provides the means to validate and refine processes, perform dynamic behavioural analysis and to identify bottlenecks and gaps in the process. Using ubiquitous software eliminates the need for specialized training and enables multi-national coordination and iterative development. This paper includes a literature review, background information on process models and architecture products, development details of the new executable architecture capability and numerical examples which demonstrate the features of the proposed tool.
