Pharmacy is one of the services providing the hospital. Its mission concerns the supply of the drugs for the patients which remain in the hospital. This paper describes the modelling methodology used to specify a knowledge model of the pharmacy service of a new French hospital. We first describe the pharmacy service of the old hospital using ARIS analysis tool, then we define the functioning of this service in the new hospital and test several hypothesis by the way of simulation models using the SIMULA language and the simulation tool WITNESS.
