Simio's rapid modeling framework lets you quickly evaluate alternatives to reduce risk and maximize the impact of your investments in new equipment or processes.
"...what gives a tool value is flexibility...
Simio provides me greater flexibility with the addition of 3D animation."

Use Simio's patent pending Risk-based Planning and Scheduling (RPS) tools to employ the same model used for facility design to also plan/schedule critical resources and assess the associated risk and cost in daily operations.
Simio provides an immersive 3D experience without the added cost and complexity. Use for even complex process simulation.
Simio was created by the inventors of Arena Simulation and is backed by an experienced team of consultants and partners around the world.

With over 44.2 million tons of sugarcane processed, 1.7 billion liters of ethanol and 3.3 million tons of sugar produced, Brazilian clean energy manufacturer Cosan has earned its place as world leader in its agricultural manufacturing niche.
Bottom Line: The planned 2011 capital expenditure requirements are reduced by eleven full cane transport sets.
The value gained by using simulation is that senior management gets a predictive risk analysis. The risk analysis covers a 240-day season factoring in labor variations, unplanned downtime, non-optimal equipment speeds and other uncertainty. The model proved to be very similar to the real dynamics of Cosan's operation for a cane sugar harvest and internal movement in the plant.
Now you can extend the use of your facility model to also plan and schedule your daily operations. Simio not only helps you improve your business performance from a facility design perspective, but also helps you maximize business results by optimizing your daily use of critical resources and assessing the risk/cost associated with your daily operational decisions. Custom tailor reports, graphs, and tables for use by production schedulers. Reduce your risk and costs with production scheduling software providing analysis never before possible.
Simio Scheduling Edition provides planners and schedulers with a customized interface including the planning software they need to get the most out of your facility. Scheduling Edition allows generating schedules, performing risk and cost analysis, investigating potential improvements, and viewing 3D animations. Requires that an Enterprise Edition be used to create the model and customize the interface seen by schedulers.
