This paper deals with transferability of agent implementations from real-world operation to simulation. The objective is to minimise the additional effort for testing and evaluating agent behaviour, mainly arising from the need for synchronisation of simulation time. This can be achieved by incorporated knowledge about agent interaction. An implementation for the FIPA request agent interaction protocol demonstrates the feasibility of this approach.
