Experiments in the field of high energy physics make use of very complex detector systems. Extraction of meaningful results from these experiments needs a deep understanding of the detector performance. The most important tool in the process of understanding is the use of simulation of some known physics processes. Tools were being developed from late 1970s with more and more improved modeling of electromagnetic and strong interaction of particles with matter. These tools are also used to design a detector system of present day high energy physics experiment. Design and construction of detectors for the experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (Lhc) took nearly two decades. Detector simulation played an important role in these designs. One of the most important toolkits and its use in one of the experiments at the Lhc are described in this paper.
