Launch & Grow a Successful Simulation Program

Written by SIMUL8

Lance Millburg, Senior Lean Six Sigma Project Manager, talks us through how Memorial Health System built their simulation team from the ground up into a nationally recognized program in 2 years.   In this webinar we hear about Memorial Health System's five step approach to developing stakeholder buy-in, building the necessary training infrastructure, and getting exposure with strategically selected projects. Gain lots of practical insights useful for individuals who are just getting started, as well as those who are established and looking to grow their simulation program and increase their impact. Webinar highlights: Step One: Give Them a Taste (3:47)…

Using Overtime for Processing Work

Written by SIMUL8

With our new Overtime feature the simulation clock realistically adjusts to the state of the system.   Watch our video as Tom, one of our simulation consultants, shows you how to use the new overtime feature in SIMUL8 2016.   Using Overtime you can now quickly extend working hours until all vital work has been processed while disabling the arrivals process of additional work. Once your process has run into overtime you can filter results to segment performance across operating hours and effective overtime hours while viewing the overall performance of the whole system. These exciting new results can be…

CTO Blog – Why SIMUL8 2016 Will Surprise You!

Written by

It’s a real release. 10 years ago I received an email from a customer who had been with us almost since we started in 1994. His email was praising our latest release, there was one phrase I’ve never forgotten “it’s a real release”. It was the best feedback I could have gotten, the features added value to him. Since then that has been our goal with every release of SIMUL8, to ensure we always make a “real release”. No token releases for the sake of it.   That’s why you have to upgrade to SIMUL8 2016 because yet again it…

Making the most of Simulation Control Logic

Written by

Some simulation models have some degree of complex conditional statements within their routing logic. SIMUL8 includes a programmable language that allows the user to develop logical statements and use various commands. This includes the use of variables, attributes, “IF Statements”, “Conditional Loops”, and multiple commands. These logical constructs make models powerful enough to take on very complex problems. These problems usually have a mixture of conflicting, conditional and random events. The code that is developed within a simulation model can lead the way to calibrating Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), creating algorithms and developing the required shop-floor ladder logic.   Whether working…
