How we add value

  1. Simulate your production facility using 3D CAD drawings to determine best layout.
  2. Communicate with all levels of the organization with realistic 3D animation.
  3. Quantify resource utilization and optimal job assignments for your workers.
  4. Independently validate the design of your green-field investment.
  5. Compare performance gains under different operating scenarios.
  6. Experiment with different product mixes and volumes.
  7. Model new production process to analyze impact.

Simulator vs. Emulator

Simulator = for analysis or study

Emulator = for usage as a substitute

A simulator is an environment which models but an emulator is one that replicates the usage as on the original device or system.

Why you need to use dynamic modeling & simulation?

Complexity

Too many factors and inter-dependencies make it impossible to represent in a spreadsheet.

Variability

You are most likely designing for the worst-case scenario by over capitalizing.

The real world is not static, why should a design of a system be based on averages.
