Top 3 tips for using optimization with simulation

Long gone are the days of trial-and-error. Say hello to finding the best decision quickly and efficiently with optimization using Simul8!   Our optimization integration, OptQuest, has undergone a makeover and…

Changing distribution parameters depending on days of the week 

Distributions let you add variation to your simulation model. For timing especially they’re key. You don’t always want to use the same distribution for the whole simulation day though. For example, patients…

How to debug your simulations

A key stage in every simulation project is validating and verifying your simulation. This is where you ensure your simulation is matching the real-world behaviour. It’s an iterative process where…
