In this paper, a Monte Carlo method is proposed, which utilizes Bohmian trajectories to simulate dissipative transport in one-dimensional quantum devices. The proposed method, similar to the classical Monte Carlo method, is capable of simulating both elastic and inelastic scattering effects, with the distinction that quantum effects such as tunneling are also included. At first, the Bohmian trajectories for the wave packets injected from the right and the left contacts are obtained by solving the time-dependent Schrodinger equation, and then scattering effects are included via stochastic changes applied on the electron trajectories. We have shown that the results of the proposed model agree well with those of NEGF formalism.
