Computer simulation, as a powerful scientific and engineering tool, is increasingly used to solve a wide range of issues within the enterprise logistics processes. This trend is mainly due to the fact that the computer simulation method offers a whole range of benefits for enterprise logistics e.g. saving time, space and finance. The use of computer simulation in logistics, however, still has certain limitations that handicap it and do not allow it to be more operationally exploited. The main reason is that the creation of models of different logistics processes is exacting on the skills and knowledge in this area. The factors as the difficulty of creating new and modifying existing models or repeating simulation experiments complicate the more frequent application of computer simulation models in logistics. For this reason, it is necessary to look for a way to simplify and make the issue available to a larger circle of users.
