SHRiMPS, the new minimum bias model in SHERPA, is based on the successful Khoze-Martin-Ryskin model. The latter is a multi-channel eikonal model that by summing all multi-pomeron diagrams is capable of describing elastic and inelastic scattering, low mass and high mass diffractive dissociation and central exclusive production. The Monte Carlo realisation relies on the partonic interpretation of the model and is a considerable extension of the original KMR model. I will review the status of SHRiMPS and future plans.
