In this paper, a multiagent simulation framework for design of micro chemical processes is proposed. In order to simulate performance of micro chemical device and process behavior under various operational conditions and micro chemical devices, an agent dynamically acquires simulation models collaborating with a DB-agent which relates to a XML-based knowledge database "MDCOs". The classifications of micro chemical devices and simulation models are carried out. Thus the agents can use every simulation models acquiring from DB through the implemented methods declared in the interfaces, which was defined as functions of micro chemical devices. AHP ( Analytic Hierarchy Process ) is adopted to multi-objective evaluation of simulation models to select the preferable simulation model responding to the various objectives of simulation, which are set by the users.
