Networked production gains increasing importance in many industries. In print media industries networked production requires advanced print and media specific job definitions and the communication of job relevant information along the complete production chain. The relatively young XML based communication standard JDF/JMF allows to specify workflow models and data exchange. Based on an object-oriented approach a simulation and modeling framework is proposed, which implements modules for the resources and controls applied in this particular industry. For this framework the available JavaSim-simulation library shall be extended to enable modeling of networked print production using the same JDF-/JMF-communication algorithms as applied in real-world system communication. This leads towards integration of simulation for factory planning and operative planning and control of networked print production in a digital factory environment.
