In simulation software selection problems, packages are evaluated either on their own merits or in comparison with other packages. In either method, a list of criteria for evaluation of simulation software is essential for proper selection. Although various simulation software evaluation checklists do exist, there are differences in the lists provided and the terminologies used. This paper presents a comprehensive list of criteria structured in a hierarchical framework for simulation software
