In process simulation you take a flow of events that happen over time in the real world and put them into our computer simulation. For example, the day-to-day operation of a bank, the running of an assembly line in a factory, or the staff assignment of a hospital or call center.
The simulation is time based, and takes into account all the resources and constraints involved, as well as the way these things interact with each other as time passes.
Most importantly, process simulation also builds in the randomness you would see in real life. This means that the simulation really can match reality, so when you make changes to the simulation it will demonstrate exactly how the system would behave in real life.
As we all know experimenting in real life can be costly. The great thing about SIMUL8 is that the only cost is the software and the man hours to build the simulation. No more worrying about the capital expenditure of hiring new staff, or purchasing new equipment. Or the cost of the ramifications of these decisions-you can experiment with SIMUL8, risk free.
Simulation is visual and animated. It lets you clearly describe your proposal to others. It’s more convincing than just displaying the end results as people can’t see where these came from. Simulation is so effective at communicating ideas that many companies now use it as a sales tool to sell their products.
Simulation provides a vehicle for discussion about all aspects of a process. The rule and data collection forces you to consider why elements work in a certain way and if they could work better. It also brings to the surface inconsistencies and inefficiencies especially between different parts of a process that work independently.
With SIMUL8 you can try lots of ideas in just a few minutes, because simulation runs much faster than real life. With simulation you can run 2, 10 or even 100 years into the future in seconds. Get the answer now; don’t leave it until it’s too late to react.
With SIMUL8 your organization can learn to understand and continuously improve processes. Successful processes means satisfying and exceeding the needs and expectations of your customers, which should be the aim of every customer focused organization.
By using simulation all your decisions will be evidence based. You can compare multiple scenarios to consider all possible angles. As a result you will know your process inside out, and be confident in making bold decisions.
