Simulating a process control system during the design phase is a key step in ensuring the system is designed correctly and meets the design specifications. There are several methods that are commonly used in industry to simulate process control systems, each selected based on the level of detail of the simulation and the cost. Many Engineering firms will choose a simulation method based on cost rather than level of detail because cost has a higher priority. -- This thesis will look at some of the ways industry currently simulates process control systems and will compare them on Cost, Fidelity (level of detail of the simulation), Implementation and Conversion. As well, an alternate simulation method will be presented that will strike a balance between cost and fidelity.
