Simio Training at Simio Headquarters

Simio Four-Day Training

Registration $990 per academic attendee and $1,980 for commercial attendee

This four-day custom course is being offered to help you learn Simio. Attendees must bring their own laptops. All pre-registered attendees will be provided a printed course workbook, a 130 page e-book (Rapid Modeling Solutions: Introduction to Simulation and Simio), and a complimentary copy of Simio Personal Edition.

What will be covered: We start with an overview of simulation technology, its limitations and benefits. We then introduce the Simio modeling framework to learn what makes Simio unique. We use the Simio Standard Library to solve a variety of problems -- exploring the ease-of-use and power of intelligent objects. Next we cover how objects can interact to provide improved model accuracy and flexibility and how to create and modify objects graphically. Learn about innovations in data representation and integration with Excel, databases and external systems like Wonderware MES. Significant time will be spent on extending model logic with add-on processes and building object definitions. Includes an overview of innovative ways to evaluate scenarios and interpret simulation results, and demonstrates the many built-in tools and techniques to ensure that your model is verified and validated and providing reliable results.

Most topics are illustrated with numerous hands-on workshops that let you instantly put your new knowledge into practical application. Success tips based on decades of experience are interspersed liberally throughout the course. The entire course will be adjusted to the needs and interests of the attendees. In particular, the last day will be dedicated to more in-depth or advanced topics and optional general simulation topics which may include advanced material handling (cranes, robots), flow processing, simulation-based planning and scheduling, and project success skills. Often time can be allocated to give you a jump-start into starting your first model.

Why use Simio? Simio breaks down the walls of traditional simulation software, giving you the power to rapidly build accurate models and objectively analyze alternatives to make informed decisions fast. The built-in 3D animation provides a powerful tool for communication with managers and other stakeholders. After helping you design the most effective system possible, Simio extends your model's use into intermediate-term planning and short-term scheduling. Click here to learn more about Simio
