Management of narrative is an important but difficult task. This paper presents a computational narrative simulation system (CNSS) which is developed by incorporating narrative analysis, story generation and knowledge-based systems (KBS). It aims at managing narrative knowledge systemically and constructing narrative simulation in a multi-linear form automatically. Compare to conventional methods, CNSS provides not only an important means for maintaining the story database so that an organization is able to manage narrative knowledge in a systemic manner. But also, CNSS automatically constructs new scenarios based on multiple narrative resources with multiple branches. To evaluate the performance of the system, a prototype has been built and trial implemented in a social service company in Hong Kong. The results showed that the automatic generation of multi-linear narrative is effective and the participants of the system agree that the system can improve their work.
