Abstract: This thesis proposes a workflow-based approach for conducting simulation studies, using software aided documentation of workflow executions. A simulation study is divided into two layers, one dealing with the creation of a simulation model while the other deals with the execution of a simulation experiment with this model. In this thesis workflows for both layers, covering a broad range of different types of simulation studies are presented and a framework for executing those workflows as well as automatically collecting provenance data and documentation is developed and implemented.
