Why you need to use dynamic modeling & simulation?


Too many factors and inter-dependencies make it impossible to represent in a spreadsheet. For instance, a significant cost to upstream supply activity is the chartering and operating of an Offshore Service Vessel (OSV) / Platform Service Vessel (PSV). Using modeling to determine the best carrying capacity, total fleet capacity, and fleet configuration supports the decision-making.


You are most likely designing for the worst-case scenario by over capitalizing. Use simulation to decide where and when to invest in assets, schedule resources and identify bottlenecks to help you make an informed decision.

Throughput volumes, transit cycle times, and identification of bottlenecks through the use of modeling & simulation provides insight into how the system meets, exceeds or falls short of key performance metrics.

  • I find [other simulation tools] very boring ..., and find Simio truly exciting and easy to build complexity, add customization and build it to an infinite scale (model within model, etc...)

    Management Consultant, Big Four Consulting Firm
  • Thanks for the quick turnaround (on prototype model that sped up the development efforts for a simulation model for an aircraft assembly facility)

    Engineer, Large US-based Engineering & Design Firm
  • First of all thanks for the excellent work by your company to develop our simulation model. Everyone is very pleased with the results.
