What Is Simulation Software?
What if you could determine the impact of your business decisions before they were implemented?
Arena simulation software provides the capability to capitalize on business performance.
- Evaluate potential alternatives to determine the best approach to optimizing performance.
- Understand system performance based on key metrics such as costs, throughput, cycle times, equipment utilization and resource availability.
- Reduce risk through rigorous simulation and testing of process changes before committing significant capital or resource expenditures.
- Determine the impact of uncertainty and variability on system performance.
- Run “what-if” scenarios to evaluate proposed process changes.
- Visualize results with 2D and 3D animation.
Model your business to improve decision making
Identify the ProblemThe key to every successful simulation project is a clear statement of the problem to be addressed and what success looks like. Once the problem is identified, a functional specification must be developed to describe the processes related to this challenge. This includes specifying the input variables and defining output variables that will be monitored and evaluated to rate the success of the possible solutions.
Model Your ProcessOnce the problem is identified and the functional specification completed, the Arena simulation model of the process can be built. Arena’s flowchart modeling methodology is an easy and intuitive way to model any process without the need for customized code or programming. Once the model is built and validated against actual operating data, you can use it to evaluate process changes, variations in market factors, or resources and equipment requirements quickly and easily.
Transform Your BusinessThe knowledge gained from simulation is only of value if it is used to improve the way you run your organization. Arena simulation software gives you the confidence and peace of mind to know that the changes you implement are the right ones for your business.
RepeatBusiness process improvement is not a one-time task. It is a continuous process that successful organizations undertake to ensure that they are staying ahead of the competition. Arena simulation software and the solutions you develop with it enable you to maintain competitive advantage and push your organization to new levels of performance.
