Abstract: Software process simulation is a complex task and
in order to conduct a simulation project practitioners require
support through a process for software process simulation
modelling (SPSM), including what steps to take and what
guidelines to follow in each step. This paper provides a
literature based consolidated process for SPSM where the
steps and guidelines for each step are identified through a
review of literature and are complemented by experience from
using these recommendations in an action research at a large
Telecommunication vendor. We found five simulation processes
in SPSM literature, resulting in a seven-step process. The
consolidated process was successfully applied at the studied
company, with the experiences of doing so being reported.
