"Your support staff at Simio has been excellent in assisting me throughout this [passenger flow] project." Mike Lazzaroni, Architect AIBC
Senior Planning Analyst, Engineering Projects
Vancouver Airport Authority


"[it was] nearly impossible to make an informed decision without analyzing the various modeling scenarios provided by the [HDR] simulation [in Simio]. We now feel confident that our recommendations are well thought out and reflect our likely utilization of these operating suites." Matthew A. Mormino, M.D.
Orthopedic Surgery Residency Director
Nebraska Medical


Resource Generation has coal interests in South Africa and Tasmania. Its current priority is to develop its planned Boikarabelo mine in the Waterberg region of South Africa where it has probable reserves of 745 million tonnes of coal.

Advanced quantitative analysis and the application of the latest modeling tools [from Simio] provided a means to efficiently minimize risk and effectively maximize return on investment.

Supply Chain

"As a COTS (Commercial-Off-The-Shelf) product, Simio fits perfectly to model the use of the armed forces logistics from Germany to Afghanistan. Simio allows detailed analysis and individual 'links' as well as an aggregated end-to-end analysis and optimization of complex supply chains of the Bundeswehr. Simio [adheres] particularly well to the supply chain approach." Mr. Hans-Georg Konert
Former Colonel and Managing Director
Konekta Consulting GmbH in Brühl, Cologne


Simio can improve both the design and operation of maritime systems – including ports, terminals, and offshore platforms. When the life of your business is at stake Simio helps you make critical decisions to improve operations and avoid unnecessary expenditures.

Brazil's Leading Ethanol Producer Finds Simulation Offers Fast, Picture-Perfect Analysis of Agricultural Operations

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.

35 Years Developing World Class Simulation Software

"I like how fast Simio is when I run experiments because it uses all the [processing] cores on my computer. 'Boom' and it is done!"

Anna Palmerius, Project Engineer, SAPA Group - Sweden

"The ability to test the planned facilities under various conditions enabled us to understand the different tradeoffs and deliver designs well suited to our customers' needs which can be expanded as traffic increases. Our de-icing simulator has now found its place among our standard analysis tools. Simio® was worth our investment."

Louis Roy, AECOM Senior Airport Planner. Case study.

"I don't know any other software company which can respond to a software change request in one day. What I like best about SIMIO is your company effort to help customers and solve their problems. I think that maintenance for SIMIO has the best value for the money."

Ing. Petr Tulach, Logio

"Yesterday I built some examples with the crane library and it literally make me want to cry! You can’t imagine the sleepless nights I spent building that in Arena!"

Gabriela Sanchez, Directora Operativa, Orca Solutions & Intelligent Management

"I've worked with a lot of different simulation software, and Simio is probably the most promising and exciting one I've seen in all that time."

Dr. David Kelton, professor and program director of the Master of Science
in quantitative analysis at the University of Cincinnati and 30-year-veteran of simulation.

"I'm amazed by the simultaneous ease of use and power of Simio. The object orientation augmented by the add-on process and agent-based capabilities makes Simio a terrific choice for serious simulation modeling and analysis. I'm confident Simio will quickly become the market leader in simulation software."

Dr. Gary Kochenberger, Professor of Decision Science at UC Denver Business School. To see the school's simulation software project, click here.

"Companies send their fast-track engineers to the MEM program to learn the state of the art---and that is what Simio represents in simulation."

Barry L. Nelson, Chair of the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management
Sciences at the McCormick School of Engineering at Northwestern.

"Our graduate students appreciate Simio's object-oriented approach and easy extensibility. I also will use Simio to introduce freshman engineers to simulation: the standard object library is easy to use and the animation is engaging. From a research perspective, Simio offers new opportunities for optimizing patient flow in healthcare systems using its intelligent objects."

Dr. D. J. Medeiros, Associate Professor at The Harold and Inge Marcus Department of
Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering at Penn State.

Advancements in Production Scheduling Software with Simio Risk-based Planning & Scheduling (RPS)

RPS Enterprise Edition

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.

RPS Scheduling Edition

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.
