"I have been using Simio to optimize airport operations for six years and have been very happy with its ease of use, versatility, built-in features, and capability to customize processes. Technical support from Simio has always been good. People are pleased with the quality of the visual output and now that we can use the Occulus Rift to provide an immersive experience, there is even more to be pleased." Pascal Poudenx

There’s no room for error when it comes to aerospace and defense manufacturing. However, one of the most difficult things to do is predict risk when you’re dealing with these kinds of complex contracts. Traditional planning methods are unable to account for real time, unavoidable variations. Simio Simulation and Scheduling Software allows you to see into the future by:
All of these capabilities ultimately help you satisfy your clients and add dollars to your bottom line.
Simio’s rapid modelling framework quickly evaluates alternative processes! Our simulation software reduces risk and maximizes the impact of your decisions and processes.
But don’t take our word for it! Lockheed Martin was faced with the challenge of increasing their monthly production rate from three to 15 aircraft per month. In conjunction with JSF Production, a Discrete Event Simulation Mode using Simio Simulation Software simulated resources needed to support these changes in the production schedule.
Using Lockheed Martin production data and delivery dates, the Simulation-Based Decision Support System devised a Simio model to simulate feasible, efficient production resource plans. The invaluable tool provided graphics, which enabled analysts and decision makers to effectively generate and evaluate the new schedules for reduced production delays. It also facilitated risk mitigation, production optimization and scheduling improvements.
Simio is closing the gap between planning and scheduling!
With Simio risk-based planning and scheduling products, managers can easily predict outcomes, resulting in more valuable business decisions to drive revenue and reduce costs. Unlike other scheduling software, Simio helps to analyze risk in real time. So when the unexpected happens, your customers will know as quickly as possible when to expect their order.
An example of scheduling software in action was when Simio Enterprise Edition software with scheduling features helped meet defense production deadlines for BAE Systems. They were able to run simulations whenever system downtime, employee availability or other factors changed, resulting in real-time awareness of their production for quick adjustments and confident decision-making. Now it’s used for various challenges with scheduling and forecasting including:
To learn more about how a customized Simio software package can benefit your company, be sure to contact us. For over 30 years we have been an industry leader in simulation and scheduling.
Quality simulation software allows companies to test changes in a production line, supply chain or your general systems and processes, all without risk. When large-scale changes are being considered, quality simulation software can accurately predict the consequences of the change, so poor decisions are eliminated. Even the smallest variable will be identified with high-quality simulation software. Incomplete data is easily identified so companies know what needs to be fixed. With the 3D simulation animation, companies can easily communicate ideas to different sectors for better understanding of the bigger picture.
