We present a detailed description of the simulation development and validation of the underground muon detector signal for the Pierre Auger Observatory. To this aim, the detection system was thoroughly characterized in the laboratory. It consists of plastic-scintillator strips with optical fibers that conduct light towards silicon photomultipliers whose output is then processed with two complementary read-out channels. These measurements allowed us to design a fast and reliable simulation chain that fully reproduces the signal of single muons impinging on the scintillators.
