Process simulation is the first step towards the redesign of business process models. However, the leading process simulation tools are usually expensive and often unavailable for common users. On the other hand, almost every computer user has experienced the usage of spreadsheets at least once. Their vast usage is due to its simplicity and to its availability in companies. This paper presents an approach for the usage of spreadsheets for process simulation. We argue that for modelling of simple business processes, the usage of spreadsheets provides just as reliable results as any other expensive simulation tool.
