Discrete Event Modeling Empowers the Optimization of Complex Processes

Continuous change is typical in the majority of processes, so modeling a large, complex process can be a daunting task. Discrete event modeling is the process of depicting the behavior of a complex system as a series of well-defined and ordered events and works well in virtually any process where there is variability, constrained or limited resources or complex system interactions. 

Discrete event simulation allows you to quickly analyze a process or system’s behavior over time, ask yourself “why” or "what if" questions, and design or change processes or systems without any financial implications.
