Learn What an OpStat Simulation Can Do

We can configure a working demonstration model using your input and let you use it yourself for “what-ifs” - shifts, schedules, kanbans, inventory levels, demand, supply, lead times…. Our offer:

  • Tell us about your company and the operation you wish to model to
  • We will schedule a one hour teleconference to get some additional information from you.
  • We will prepare a 30 day free license for your company to sign.
  • We will configure the simulation and supporting Excel sheets and send to you with instructions within a week, and will be available to answer your questions as you use it.

APICS 2017 Annual Conference San Antonio Jim Curry and Johnson & Johnson presented Using Simulation and Optimization in Complex Manufacturing Operations.  Read how after a weekly simulation and optimization process was enacted, customer service rose to unprecedented levels, while plant financial performance became enterprise benchmarks.
