13. How does Simcad Pro handle large models?
Simcad Pro, developed by CreateASoft, is a leading edge process simulation environment designed to effectively simulate and analyze today’s complex environment. Some of the
key features of Simcad Pro is its adaptability to different environment and its ability to integrate, in one model, all aspects of the operation from
logistics and transportation, to
paper work tracking.
With Simcad Pro, each process within the model can be expanded to include its required set of detail. Processes can be nested to add constraints and functionality, in addition to the capability that allows individual cells to be simulated in their own unique environment.
Simcad Pro also includes dynamic data connectivity that allows it to interface with Excel or databases to setup an initial state, load initial data and routing information, and monitor and update changes while the simulation is running. As an example, a number of plants and distribution centers use
Simcad Pro in conjunction with
RFID systems to constantly forecast potential bottlenecks and limitations dynamically.
Simcad Pro also supports a multitude of statistical distribution (user customizable) for timing and rate creation distributions. Simcad Pro
reporting capabilities provide results in grid or chart formats as needed and during the simulation run. All generated data can also be exported dynamically to the leading statistical packages for
Building the models within Simcad Pro is graphical with a 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.
