The cost of developing, implementing, using simulation technology, and integrating them is very high. There are efforts to promote interoperability and facilitate data exchange among various business process systems conveniently and efficiently. The international Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO) developed and standardized the Core Manufacturing Simulation Data (CMSD) specification to foster the more widespread use of manufacturing technology through the reduction of data interoperability issues. The CMSD provides information model describing characteristics of and relationships between the core manufacturing entities which in turn can be used for simulating manufacturing systems. The paper through a case demonstrates an example using eVSM and CMSD document to integrate real world manufacturing based application. The paper concludes by highlighting the fact that CMSD document coupled with a standalone DES application has great potential to reduce cost, time, and expertise required to carry DES which will be immensely beneficial for small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
