In the automotive development process at the BMW Group virtual meth-ods contribute significantly to the reduction of development costs and time. To further increase the use of simulation methods and support the manage-ment of the virtual validation process it is fundamental to perform an eco-nomical assessment. The economical assessment is a complex task, as the virtual validation process is a highly decentralized process with a large num-ber of boundary conditions influencing the simulation activities and therefore process costs. In this paper we present a Multiple-Domain-Matrix approach to model the complex virtual validation process and the dynamics of the bounda-ry conditions. The integration of a process cost calculation in the MDM framework is shown generically and in a case study.
