    In this report a simulation tool that assists the user when constructing continuous simulation models will be described. The simulation tool can be used for constructing simulation programmes that are executed with the runtime executive DYSIM86 which applies a modular approach. This approach makes it possible to split a model into several modules. The simulation tool introduces one more level of modularity. In this level a module is constructed from submodules that are taken from a library. A submodule consists of a submodel for a component in the complete model. The simulation tool consists of two precompilers that work on the two different levels of modularity. The library is completely open to the user so it is possible to extend it. This is done by a routine which is also part of the simulation tool. The simulation tool is demonstrated by simulating a part of a power plant and a part of a sugar factory. This illustrates that the precompilers can be used for simulation of different types of process plants.
