Simulation is a well-known technique, but in many circumstances there is a need to include the actions of intelligent decision-makers within the model. Two routes have been suggested: Visual Interactive Simulation (VIS), which uses the decision-maker directly, or Expert Systems (ES), which model the decision-maker. This paper proposes a combined route, using a VIS to Elicit behaviour, then Embedding the ES within the simulation. Particular reference is made to a case-study (whose circumstances and model have been published previously). The object of the paper is to suggest the methodology, and also to pose a number of questions.
