Simulation studies are intricate processes in which model building, model refinement, and a wide variety of simulation experiments are typically closely intertwined to achieve the objective of the simulation study. To (semi-)automatically support this process, the central artifacts of a simulation study, such as simulation models and simulation experiments, need to be made explicit and accessible. Furthermore, the relations between the artifacts as well as their context (e.g., the objectives, data sources, and requirements) have to be made explicit in an unambiguous manner. If this information is enriched by knowledge about modeling and simulation approaches or specific application domains, interpretation and reuse of the various (intermediate) artifacts and activities are facilitated even more. The resulting information can then be exploited to assist modelers in selecting and conducting the subsequent simulation experiments, which we demonstrate using a cell biological simulation study.
