    I would have to say that functionally, a good simulation represents the material and energy balance of the process of interest to the level of detail needed for the purpose at hand – whether that is detailed equipment design or a high-level economic analysis.  In the most extreme level of detail, that may require a dynamic representation of the operation – startup, shutdown, or operating upset conditions.
