A simulator allows you to test functionality of a product without running it in a production environment. This helps pretty much eliminate the threat of a trainee shutting down your entire product line/business/whatnot because they entered “a” instead of “b”. A good example of this is using a product such as VirtualBox or VMware Workstation to see if you like a particular operating system, without doing anything irreversible to your hard drive.

CISCO also comes with a simulator to allow people studying for the CCNA to test various functionality with the product.

******************************************

A Simulator in any case is a practice of creating a real-like scenario and then studying the application of various methods and their impact/results. Like army simulates war like situation and drills out how they plan to win.
In software quality a simulator is a tool (or is done manually) to raise a mock but real situation, during testing, before the product is released to customer, and then see its effect, if it passes or produces some bugs.

Another way the word simulation is used is when bugs list has been handed over to production team to fix them, and if the developer is not able to produce a bug reported by QA, a tester simulates the bug (produces the bug) to display it to the developer so that he understands the scenario and fixes it.
