In the oil industry, many collaborative environments are being created known as Integrated Operations project. This article shows that the simulation for design layout of a collaborative environment highlights issues concerning the future organization of work. The participatory dynamics and the use of the proposed layouts for the new space were the main features of the simulation process. More than a review of the furniture and the physical layout of the rooms, simulation’s meetings turned into discussions about the required number of operators and the future process operators' work.
