An agent-based approach to modelling and simulation of design teams executing development activities is presented. Based on literature review and the need for a research and managerial planning tool, a simulation framework is developed. Different framework aspects are briefly described with indications on the supporting literature. An initial version of the agent-based model is developed based on the proposed framework. In this initial model, it is possible to simulate agents of different characteristics working by a predefined workflow of activities.
