Simio Awards $108,900 Grant to the University of Applied Sciences Technikum Wien

Sewickley, Pa.Simio, a developer of 3D object-oriented simulation software, has awarded a $108,900 grant to the University of Applied Sciences Technikum Wien. The University of Applied Sciences Technikum Wien is the largest purely technical university of applied sciences in Austria.

The University of Applied Sciences Technikum Wien is now one of over a 140 universities worldwide to join Simio’s academic program, which offers Simio’s 3D modeling software to schools at no charge. Simio Academic Edition is fully capable software with no model size limits and includes discrete and continuous modeling, object library development, and 3D animation.

“The faculty at the University of Applied Sciences Technikum Wien is committed to providing the best environment for their students to learn simulation,” said Dr. Dennis Pegden, Founder and CEO of Simio. “We are honored to provide them with the best software available to teach their students."

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 simulation software will increase the school's already achieved positive evaluation results of courses incorporating simulation solutions in teaching. Addressing the Product Lifecycle Paradigma (PLM) in engineering, Simio takes its place in production layout design and planning.

“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," said Markus Klug, Lecturer at the University of Applied Sciences Technikum Wien.

Students at the school will be able to model systems using intelligent objects and the software’s direct connection to Google’s 3D Warehouse – two features unique to Simio. The intelligent objects are built by modelers and then may be reused in multiple modeling projects. These objects can be stored in libraries and are easily shared. Simio’s connection to Google’s 3D Warehouse gives access to a free online library of thousands of graphic objects – providing students with the ability to solve real-world problems in visually rich environments.


About Simio LLC

Simio LLC is a privately held company that is dedicated to delivering leading edge solutions for the design, emulation, and scheduling of complex systems.

Simio LLC was founded in 2005 by a highly experienced team. Founder and CEO of Simio LLC, C. Dennis Pegden, Ph.D., has over three decades experience in simulation and scheduling and has been widely recognized as an industry leader. He led in the development of SLAM (marketed by Pritsker and Associates) and then founded Systems Modeling Corporation. Dennis led the creation of the market-leading simulation products SIMAN® and Arena®, as well as, the finite capacity scheduling product Tempo. Now Simio is a market leading, 4th generation simulation product with patents for flexible object design and scheduling risk analysis. Simio object design eliminates text based coding for building models and planners can predict the risk in their detailed production schedules. Simio’s unified model works for both facility design and managing daily operations. To learn more, visit Simio.
