The invention is a system and method for simulating a chemical process across multiple computers in communication with each other. The system and method operate by receiving input representing parameters for the chemical process to be simulated. The chemical process is partitioned into a plurality of sections based on said parameters. Each partitioned section is assigned to a computer having simulation programs. The operation of each simulation program is scheduled on each computer so that the chemical process is accurately simulated. The operation of at least one simulation program is initiated. Process data representing materials in the chemical process is transmitted from one remote computer to a second remote computer. Information representing the status of the chemical process simulation is output.
