The paper discusses the relationship between simulation and knowledge management. Simulation models are increasingly being used to simulate processes in many different domains, including urban management, for solving decision problems. Usually, during the model development, the simulation team developing the model must rely on the knowledge provided by domain experts. In order to facilitate this simulation modelling process, appropriate collaborative knowledge management tools may be utilised. On the other hand, simulation models can facilitate knowledge management activities and processes as models could be used to evaluate decision alternatives before they are implemented or models could be used to simulate missing business data needed for discovering knowledge patterns. The paper concludes with a brief literature review of the some interdisciplinary applications that involve the combined use of both approaches. These applications include the use of system dynamics simulation for analysis of knowledge management strategies in organisational populations, learning curves, capital human modelling, and investigation of the influence of knowledge transfer and proximity (geographical, cognitive, and organizational) on the firm agglomeration process inside an industrial district.
