1. How long has Simcad Pro® been on the market?

The first version of Simcad Pro® was released in February of 1996. Since then, and through customer feedback, CreateASoft successfully added most of the requested features. For that reason, Simcad Pro® features list is customer driven and contains the required capabilities to handle today's complex business world.

2. Is Simcad Pro® industry specific?

Simcad Pro® is a process based tool, and is designed to support all process based environments.

The client base for Simcad Pro® ranges from manufacturing and automation, to healthcare and banking, including document flow, robotics, logistics, lean implementation and sales applications.

3. How long would it take me to effectively learn Simcad Pro®?

Simcad Pro® has a very intuitive user interface similar to most Windows based applications. Moreover, since Simcad Pro® does not require coding, learning to build the models is quick.

Some of our clients have used a 2-Day training program to be proficient in Simcad Pro®, while others decided to learn it on their own and built extensive models without training.

4. How fast can the animation be created? How does the animation depict the state of the simulation engine?

Building the models within Simcad Pro® is graphical with no coding requirement. The models can be easily customized to allow each product, process, resource, with their own set of entities that are continuously tracked during the simulation.

After the simulation starts, the animation shows the exact state of the engine, so that the simulation can be traced through time if needed. In fact, the animation environment serves as a validation tool to every model built.

5. How complex is it to build an animation of the simulation, once the model has been created?

The animation is automatically generated both in 2D and 3D. There are no additional steps required except for specifying locations of buffers and in- process objects. Besides that, the animation is automatic.

6. The parts we produce contain special properties and parameters, can Simcad Pro® support the additional properties?

Each Process, Connection, and Object within Simcad Pro® can be assigned additional properties. Moreover, groups of objects can be defined based on type or content.

7. We have a high mix environment, our routing tables can change constantly, how does Simcad Pro® support such an environment?

The real time Dynamic Data Connectivity plays a major role in supporting the High Mix operation. In such an environment, the routing tables are loaded from ERP systems or external sources and can be modified outside the model. The model then dynamically updates based on the new imported routing tables. Moreover, the routing tables can change during a simulation run if needed.

8. Do I have to code in Simcad Pro? Is the interface a front end to a coding environment?

Simcad Pro® allows you to build the models graphically and without writing code. Moreover, the user interface does not generate code either, a feature that is only available in Simcad Pro®. Hence, the user will never become overwhelmed with the dreaded experience of the code being out of sync with the model, having to learn a new programming language, or the nuisance of forgetting to recompile after each change.

Simcad Pro®'s patented interface to the engine allows it to provide unprecedented capability to build models graphically and dynamically effect the changes on the simulation engine. Moreover, Simcad Pro® enables you to make changes to the model during the simulation run. This feature enables dynamic optimization that allows you to quickly find the optimum solution and perform proper planning.
