    The need to fully integrate simulation as a daily tool has been subject to much attention over the past few years. This study investigated the reasons behind the limited use of simulation and the past experiences of companies which implemented simulation. A literature review, questionnaire survey and case study were conducted to examine these factors. Subsequently, an easy-to-follow framework for enabling companies to embed simulation technologies into their business processes was developed. The framework comprises five key stages, namely: foundation, introduction, infrastructure, deployment and embedding. It provides a best practice approach to guide companies to integrate simulation as a mainstream technology.
