A quick search for “FlexSim” in Google Scholar will show how widely adopted FlexSim simulation software has become in academia. With hundreds of citations in published articles from around the globe—and being taught in classrooms or used in research at over 400 universities worldwide—FlexSim is a trusted choice for education.
FlexSim offers outreach programs to both educational institutions and industry. We’re committed to promoting the understanding of, and appreciation for, the power of simulation as a means to effectively improve and support problem solving and decision making. All of the program offerings are developed and presented by Allen Greenwood, Ph.D., P.E.—he is available to discuss the program and provide guidance on how to make it a successful event.
Each year, FlexSim sponsors the Society for Health Systems (SHS) Student Simulation Competition. Teams of ISE students from around the world solve a real-world healthcare situational case study using FlexSim Healthcare, 3D simulation software specifically designed for health systems modeling. This blog post takes a closer look at how the competition has positively impacted the student participants.
Industrial Engineering and Simulation Experience Using FlexSim Software
This article, authored by Dr. Emre Tokgöz and published in the Computers in Education Journal, shows how FlexSim was used in a simulation course aimed at Industrial Engineering students and provides a pedagogical method for teaching a simulation course.
