This paper presents a methodology to create 3D visualization from discrete event simulation for simulation of electronics assembly processes. The methodology connects discrete event simulation directly to 3D animation with its novel methods of converting discrete simulation results into animation events to trigger 3D animation. It also develops a 3D animation framework for the visualization of discrete simulation results. This framework supports the reuse of both the existing 3D animation objects and behaviour components, and allows the rapid development of new 3D animation objects by users with no special knowledge in computer graphics. This methodology has been implemented with the software component technology. Examples are presented to demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed methodology.
