MOSIMTEC has recently completed simulation models for clients in crude oil and refined products storage and transportation logistics. We wanted to share how our virtual tools (more accurately described as precision instruments) helped our clients bring clarity to their complex operations.

Love the movie Moneyball. It is a great example of what numbers can do to answer those tough questions you have about your operations. How you can build a team around statistics rather than emotional decisions is paramount in it’s simplicity.
Too often I have seen projects go off track due to certain stakeholders I like to refer to as Table Pounders. These are the ones that will speak the loudest and demand that certain scope is added to your project. Often their input was based on past experience when they personally incurred some hardship due to an occurrence
Simulation models create heaps of performance data for every component in a modeled system (transactional, state, and usage data). However, understanding what that data represents with regards to other data can be very challenging – essentially deciphering component relationships. This is where visual analytics plays a very big role and is a vital component of relationship
I’m writing this post because I feel I left some things unsaid from my last post – On Our Watch. This was mainly spurred from the great comments from fellow engineers who were caring enough to share their thoughts and experiences working as an engineer.
I am disappointed in my fellow engineers. Lately our world has been affected in a negative way due to our actions. I’m talking about the recent investigations into the automotive industry and our lack of action in preventing this from occurring. As an engineer we are responsible for ensuring that we put public safety first
There are a lot of stats on the high percentage of senior leaders making decisions from intuition or gut instincts, but I won’t quote any of those here as 50% of all stats are made up… 😉
In my past experience I have worked on both the engineering side as well as the client when evaluating project scope. Too often I have seen infrastructure incorrectly designed and for many reasons but mostly due to the unknowns or even the known unknowns. Many business development representatives and project engineers want to have more
Visual Analytics is key to validating simulation models. Allowing the decision makers to gain comfort that the model is performing as it was intended is being able to see their operations live and breathe with their operators and external forces in a virtual environment. MOSIMTEC‘s 3D simulation models not only provide that validation by allowing
A picture says a thousand words. A motion picture tells a story. Simulations bring your operations to life!
