Summary

A simulation toolkit based on the frameworks ROOT and GEANT4 has been developed for the SHOGUN spectrometer. The toolkit is designated for the simulation of fast in-beam gamma-ray spectroscopy experiments and includes important details as atomic background, target energy-loss, and the lifetimes of excited states. Different SHOGUN configurations can be tested in order to find the optimum configuration for an envisaged experiment. In my presentation I will give an overview of the simulation status and discuss issues that need to be addressed.
