Run-time adaptability is a key feature of dynamic business environments. Accordingly, the business processes need to be constantly refined and restructured to deal with exceptional situations and changing requirements. Therefore, gaining insight in an existing or proposed future situation needs simulation process. Simulation is a cost-effective way to analyse several alternatives that it will become apparent which parts are critical. However, dynamic business processes (DBP) simulation are not investigated sufficient what prevents their effective use. Therefore, this paper presents a systematic literature review of conference and journal articles on the topic of DBP simulation. The review has been undertaken to define DBP, identify the DBP requirements, analyse proposed solutions for their implementation and dynamic simulation.
