To save costly and time-consuming physical prototype testing, product functionality is increasingly validated by means of simulations. However, the specificity of product properties is generally strongly influenced by the course of the development process respectively by the boundary conditions of the development situation. Therefore, it is to provide methods and tools to targeted support property validation. Focus of actual research activities is on a process orientated support of virtual property validation by means of simulation planning. The approach presented in this paper is based on a specific data processing of the design data which differs between characteristics and properties. The development context is described by means of context factors which are linked to this. The demonstrated process integration supports to evaluate the meaningfulness of a simulation and to facilitate operational planning of simulations.
