This paper presents a process-based discrete-event simulation library for construction project planning. Business process models are used to build an accumulative knowledge base for standard construction processes in form of a ready to use process templates. The library aims to reduce the time and efforts needed to create simulation models for a construction project throughout its lifecycle by integrating process models with simulation models and provide a set of reusable simulation components. The paper presents the concepts and describes the architecture of the system with briefly review of its features.
