Although various forms of symbiosis are known in biology, only mutualism has been considered in the context of symbiotic simulation systems. In this paper, we explain why the original definition of symbiotic simulation systems is narrow and why it is important to consider other forms of symbiosis as well. As a consequence we propose an extended definition of symbiotic simulation systems motivated by symbiosis in biology. By using this extended definition, we identify five different types of symbiotic simulation systems which can be applied in various applications. We describe how single systems can be combined and propose a hybrid symbiotic simulation system in the context of semiconductor manufacturing.
