In the past, I have solved that problem by adding a makefile in the
directory, which produces a separate fragment to be consumed/included by
the org file.  Make based on the updated data, publish based on the
static outuput of the make process.

If you let the sim run "in the background" while you edit, you'll likely
get to a point, whilst tweaking or such, that you have dispatched
several long-running jobs in parallel, and only care about the last
result.  That's probably counterproductive. :)
