In this paper we describe a rolling simulation considering the main sources of plastic anisotropy, namely the Bauschinger effect and crystallographic texture. For this purpose we coupled the VPSC-model of Lebensohn and Tomé  with the hardening model of Peeters et al. . The combined model is implemented in the Finite-Element code ABAQUS/Explicit®. With the combination of finite-element method, VPSC-texture model and the hardening model a rolling process is simulated and the nfluence of the Bauschinger effect on the texture evolution is studied.
