An integrated software system has been under development which aims at analyzing and evaluating the effectiveness of man-machine system design, by computer simulations from various viewpoints of human-factors. In this paper, the configuration of a distributed simulation system is first introduced, followed by an explanation of how the operator simulator model is organized by a Petri net model. Also presented is an example simulation of a plant anomaly diagnoses procedure using the Petri net model in its current state of development in the initial phase of software development.
