Domain specific discrete event simulation environments are supposed to enable faster and easier model development and experimentation. Unfortunately, perceived disadvantages from simulation experts hinder the wide application of this technology. We have performed laboratory experiments and simulation studies in two different domains to learn what the difficulty of domain specific simulation environments is. The lessons that we learned from these experiments and simulation studies enabled us to formulate requirements for domain specific simulation environments, for the model constructs in these environments, for the design of these environments and for guidelines for the use of these environments in simulation studies.
