The paper presents a new method to model different resource types (designers, computational, testing) and study the impact of using different options of those resources by simulating and analysing the results in a PD context. Thus, activity behaviour is shaped depending on the chosen resource option to perform the activity. The approach enhances the capability to explore all the variations of resource combination design space. It was applied to an aerospace case study to identify insights such as the best performing resource combinations, critical resources and resource sensitive activities.
