**Abstract:** The topic of this presentation is an integration task, based on the three well-known neutron scattering softwares [McStas][1], [SASview][2] and [Mantid][3]. We will show a "full-circle" virtual SANS experiment where we combine - An arbitrary SASview scattering kernel - Instrument resolution realism from McStas - ToF event analysis in Mantid - Re-retrieve the initial simulation parameters in a SASview analysis We believe that the combination of the three listed software proves to be powerful, and even if integration tasks are sometimes considered trivial exercises, they can be fully worth the effort in terms of new functionality that was not envisioned before. We further believe that the presented prototype is the first of a series of methods, that will bring instrument resolution realism to data analysis in other parts of neutron scattering, e.g. in diffraction and inelastic scattering. The discussed integration is a result of a collaboration between DTU Physics, ESS DMSC and ISIS STFC, aiming to support the LOKI instrument development efforts at ESS.
