Reconfigurable systems, that offer flexibility and robustness to efficiently manage quality of service in spite of uncertainties and disturbances, are a necessary evolution of classical controlled systems. As they can change their organization during their use, so their control laws, they become more complex.Two simulations types are presented to analyze such systems. The first one enables to check the behavior of the system controlled with the code that will be implemented. It is performed using a simulator based on virtual reality and physical engine. The second one takes parts in the reconfiguration procedure evaluation. It consists in the simulation of elements that simulate their own environment using their own models. A reconfigurable system using look-ahead simulation for its reconfiguration can then be simulated. The developments have been performed in collaboration with firms and Professor E. Kindler.
