    Visualize

    Create a dynamic, animated computer model of your business environment from CAD files, process or value stream maps, or Process Simulator models. Clearly see and understand current processes and policies in action.

    Analyze

    Brainstorm using the model to identify potential changes and develop scenarios to test improvements which will achieve business objectives. Run scenarios independently of each other and compare their results in the Output Viewer developed through the latest Microsoft® WPF technology.

    Optimize

    Immediately test the impact of changes on current and future operations, risk free, with predictive scenario comparisons. Determine optimal business performance with a high probability of meeting your business goals.



    The ProModel Advantage

    ProModel provides decision makers the opportunity to test new ideas for process and system design or improvement before committing the time and resources necessary to build or alter the actual system.

    ProModel focuses on issues such as:

    • Resource Utilization
    • System Capacity
    • Process Improvement
    • Throughput and Bottleneck Analysis
    • Supply Chain and Logistics
    • Customer Service Levels


    By modeling the important elements of a manufacturing, logistics or service system, leaders can experiment with different operating strategies and designs to achieve optimal performance for their organizations.

    Solutions

    Six Sigma Initiatives

    Enhance the effectiveness of Analyze and Improve steps of the DMAIC Methodology. Experiment to ANALYZE how the system responds within the model and develop a total continuous IMPROVEMENT strategy in a dynamic, risk-free environment.

    Product Summary

    The ProModel Optimization Suite is a discrete-event simulation technology that helps you to make better decisions faster. It is used to plan, design and improve new or existing manufacturing, logistics and other tactical and operational systems. It empowers you to accurately replicate complex real-world processes with their inherent variability and interdependencies, to conduct predictive performance analysis on potential changes, and then to optimize the system based on your key performance indicators.
