Simio is a family of products that includes the Express, Design, Team, and Enterprise Editions. Models built with all four Editions are fully compatible both up and down the product family. All four products provide the same powerful 3D object-based modeling environment.
Many simulation packages are built on out-dated 2D technology that limits your ability to visualize your process or capture 3D spatial relationships in your system. Some of these older products limit you to 2D only models, while others offer expensive/complex 3D add-ons that require you to build a separate 3D visualization of your system, and then tie these two separate components together. These extra steps add unnecessary work and time to your project, and make your model and animation difficult to edit and maintain.
In contrast, Simio provides a true object-based 3D modeling environment which lets you construct your 3D model in a single step from a top-down 2D view, and then instantly switch to a 3D view of your system. You simply drag and place your 3D objects from an Object Library into your facility view of the model.
All Simio model-building products directly integrate with Google Warehouse to allow you to quickly download from a massive library of freely available 3D symbols to easily and quickly add realism to your models.
Now for the first time you can get a powerful and fully functional 3D object-based modeling and animation system at an affordable price ($4,850). Simio Express uses the Simio Standard Library to provide you with a powerful and flexible 3D modeling environment for rapid modeling. Simio Express is ideal for casual and serious users of simulation who want to rapidly build eye-catching and realistic models of their systems.
Experience the real difference in modeling speed that a true 3D object-based modeling environment gives you compared to older 2D, process-only based tools.

Simio Design is our standard product and includes the Standard Library for getting started with Simio, but adds a unique and powerful capability (patent pending) that allows you to modify the logic of your objects using add-on process-oriented logic. This version of the software also provides you with the ability to create and distribute your own custom modeling libraries. Simio Design is the ideal product for professional modelers that want to have full control over complex process logic or want to develop new modeling libraries focused on specific applications areas.
Simio Team has the same functionality provided by Simio Design, but also lets you build and distribute models using the freely available Simio Evaluation version as a runtime platform. Models built with the Team Edition will run and generate results with the Simio Evaluation version. Simio Team is ideal for consultants that want to deliver a running model to their customer without requiring them to purchase Simio. The Team Edition also provides the capability to distribute scenarios and replications across other computers in your workgroup.
Simio Enterprise adds a powerful set of patent-pending features to extend the Team Edition capabilities into daily operational support. Extend the use and lifespan of your previously built Simio models or build and execute new models for Risk-based Planning and Scheduling(RPS). Custom tailor reports, graphs, and tables for use by schedulers. Reduce your risk and costs by analyzing your schedules in ways never before possible. Learn more.
Simio Scheduling Edition provides planners and schedulers with a customized interface including the tools 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.
OptQuest for Simio is available as an add-on to the standard Simio products. OptQuest tightly integrates with Simio experiments and uses state-of-the-art algorithms, including Tabu Search, Neural Networks, Scatter Search, and Linear/Integer Programming to generate and evaluate scenarios in search of optimal configurations.
Simio Evaluation and Training Edition is a free trial version of Simio. This version of Simio puts no limits on what you can model and is fully functional for small models. The ability to save your work is disabled for larger models. You can also use the Simio Evaluation Edition to open and run models that have been built by the Simio Team Edition. Once you purchase a license you may activate the evaluation software and begin saving your models.
Fully functional versions of Simio are available to students and faculty. Simio educational grants make it easy to obtain, learn and teach what your students need to be successful. The resources of the Simio Academic Community support your objectives to stay ahead of the technology curve and meet the demands of next generation technology. With software, course development, texts and discussion forums, the Simio Academic Community gets you off to a fast start. See the Academic Quick Start page for complete information.
