Two categories of simulation that have gained prominence in the past decade are discrete event simulation (DES) and system dynamic simulation (SD). DES is used to model a system in detail to comprehend the actual behavior of the individual components. In contrast, SD simulation is used to build models using aggregated data for system wide dynamic flow analysis of managerial decisions. The need for an integrated hybrid simulation environment is highlighted and prototype architecture is presented. An application methodology in the area of hierarchical production planning in a manufacturing enterprise along with a preliminary feasibility analysis is then presented.
