An organizational simulation of an integrated operation initiative for logistics is planned to support this organizational project consisting of the implementation of a central collaborative environment and its satellite teams. The main driver of such simulation may be defined according to the ergonomic work analysis that highlights issues related to the mental representation of the logistic process, built by the collaboration between these distributed teams as a means of increasing the distributed situational awareness throughout the system.
