The goal of increasing business revenue often starts with a series of scenarios and forecasts, but usually involves visualization and modeling. Large corporations often rehearse certain business processes, but simulation software solutions like FlexSim have largely replaced this practice.
FlexSim Software Products has been developing 3D modeling and simulation software since 1993. In the beginning, FlexSim was mostly used as manufacturing simulation software; over the years, it has evolved into a discrete-event simulation solution that can be applied in sectors other than manufacturing and assembly. In essence, FlexSim allows companies to create computer-based modeling scenarios or simulations of business processes and systems. Users can access a wide range of intuitive tools that automatically scale to many scenarios. The physical layout can be imported from existing CAD files or drawn within the application, and adding objects is as simple as dragging them from library menus and dropping them right on the model.
Although users in the manufacturing industry have traditionally been the main FlexSim target users, other sectors that can optimize their processes with this software include: healthcare, retail distribution, fuel production, mining, packaging, customer support, and logistics. Notable FlexSim features include:
FlexSim can be installed in just about any x86 computer running on Windows. The minimum system requirements start at Windows 7, 4 GB of RAM, AMD Radeon or Nvidia GeForce cards, and the Microsoft .NET Framework. The Express version of FlexSim can be freely downloaded and installed for evaluation. Licensing can be negotiated with the vendor according to users and required modules.
- Extensive objects library.
- Powerful graphics engine for full animations.
- Smart process analysis.
- Free add-on modules for specific sectors.
