Simulation has become a standard part of design processes. While much reseach has been done on technical aspects, there is little knowledge on the implications on communication and collaboration. This paper proposes a three level approach comprising of organizational aspects, rules and guidelines, and methods and tools. A simulation assignment based on requirement templates is built that includes basic information like simulation type and desired output. All further information is provided by requirement templates, transfering techniques from requirements engineering to simulation management.
