Praise for Simio

"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

"...what gives a tool value is flexibility... Simio provides me greater value through flexibility with the addition of 3D animation."

John T. Carson, Staff Operations Engineer, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company.

"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 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

"The project team decided to use SIMIO in preference to ARENA because SIMIO had better graphics and extended capabilities that were not available in ARENA."

Simio was choosen by the Naval Postgraduate School to model piracy defense strategies in remote sea locations. Click here to read the report.

"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

Simio was used by AECOM to model Edmonton International Airport's de-icing system. To read the entire case study, click here.

“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. Grant News Release.

Simio will not only be used to teach simulation classes in the University of Cincinnati's College of Business, but also to conduct research. Parastu Kasaie, a first-year doctoral student in the quantitative analysis department, plans to use the software in her work on the spread of epidemics such as HIV.

“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. Grant News Release.

Northwestern will introduce Simio in their Master of Engineering Management (MEM) program via the course “Computer Simulation for Risk and Operations Analysis.” This hands-on, case-based course teaches simulation model building and experiment design and analysis. MEM students are working engineers who can immediately put their simulation training into practice.

“Simio offers innovative features that makes simulation exciting and powerful.”

Dr. Jesus Jimenez, Assistant Professor in the Ingram School of Engineering at Texas State. Dr. Jimenez has significant experience in simulation modeling and analysis. Grant News Release.

Simio will be used for teaching simulation courses in the Texas State’s Ingram School of Engineering. The software will be also used at the Center for High Performance Systems (CHiPS), where students and faculty conduct research on factory logistics, manufacturing systems design, and intelligent transportation systems.

“Simio has been invaluable for our work.”

E. Michael Foster, professor of maternal and child health in University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Gillings School of Global Public Health, Grant News Release.

Foster's students are using the program to model the functioning of social services for children and youth. They are developing a model, for example, to examine the movement of at-risk youth into and through the juvenile justice system, and the potential for mental health services to reduce crime in a community.

“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. Grant News Release.

Penn State teaches Simio in two graduate level simulation courses offered by the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering. Graduate students also use the software to conduct research in areas including manufacturing, supply chain modeling, and healthcare.

“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. Grant News Release.

The school’s first use of Simio will be in its capstone course for our Decision Science major where students have to model and solve a significant problem brought to us by a company in the Denver area. This term, the students are modeling and analyzing traffic flows in downtown Denver for the Downtown Denver Partnership. Beyond this project, the school plans on using Simio in its simulation course and on future projects for the business community.

“Due to the unique experience and worldwide renowned founders of Simio, we are extremely proud of being awarded this grant. Simio will provide latest simulation technology for the students, preparing them the best way for their future jobs and challenges."

Markus Klug, Lecturer at the University of Applied Sciences Technikum Wien. Grant News Release.

Simio will be used for the training of students in the part-time master’s degree program “International Business and Engineering” providing state of the art in simulation engineering in blended learning courses. Furthermore the environment will also assist in other degree programs, visualizing the academic content targeting a deeper and sustainable understanding.

“The power of Simio makes learning the software such a simple matter that students can begin doing research for projects very quickly.”

James Higley, Professor at Purdue University Calumet. Grant News Release.

Purdue University Calumet will use Simio as part of its new Masters In Technology Program.

“To expand and improve our decision sciences offerings in the Hull College, we need to put the best tools in the hands of students and faculty. Simio allows us to deliver professional quality, and state of the practice simulation-based curriculum.”

Todd Schultz, Associate Dean for the Hull College at Augusta State University. Grant News Release.

At Augusta State University, Simio will support development of simulation based courses as part of a joint program between the Hull College of Business and the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science.

“Our Engineering faculty came with a request for simulation software. After looking at the various options, we decided to look at Simio. The interface and feature set contains everything a modern software package should offer. The interface is simple, which allows our students to begin their work immediately. Simio’s ability to incorporate objects from Google’s 3D Warehouse allows the students to create robust and dynamic simulation processes without sacrificing time.”

Scott Pleasants, Manager of LUSECS Technology & Research Labs at Liberty University. Grant News Release.

“Simio offers the capabilities of examining real world processes, such as the U.S. Air Force supply chain to the traffic flow of Lynchburg, VA, or specifically Liberty University. It provides an analysis of growth rates over an x number of years and while offering an analysis of bottlenecks for potential conflicts. This helps in the allocation of resources where action would be needed at a future time. Since you can model into the future, Simio allows us to model the processes to find conflicts and to objectively forecast resources and budgets accordingly.”

Robert Rich, Professor of Industrial Engineering at Liberty University. Grant News Release.

The faculty at Liberty will use Simio to teach students the core competencies of Engineering and Systems Design.
