We present an overview of the development of the end-to-end simulation programs for the instruments on the future European X-ray astronomy mission Athena. The overview includes the design considerations behind the simulation software and the current status and planned developments of the simulators for the X-ray Integral Field Unit and the Wide Field Imager.
