FlexSim partners with two Brazilian universities to support simulation education
Two universities in Brazil, the Federal University of Santa Maria (UFSM) and the Federal Institute of Minas Gerais—Bambuí Campus (IFMG), have received educational licenses of FlexSim as part of a partnership with FlexSim Brazil. These licenses will be used in simulation teaching and research at both institutions.
“The educational version of FlexSim is an excellent opportunity for our students to consolidate the scientific knowledge acquired in class,” said João Flávio, professor at IFMG. “Through the software, I can see that the students who have simulation or correlated disciplines in Operational Research will be able to [create] even more complex and bigger models, reinforcing the analytical power of our future Production Engineers, Administrators and Computing Scientists.”
The professor in charge of FlexSim education at UFSM added, “We chose FlexSim to be used in research, as well as in disciplines related to the decision-making process in organizations, because of [the software’s] innovative concept of integrating the logic of the model and the 3D design, and the fact that the software has very updated technology. It will provide the students the use of a powerful tool for building and analyzing models based in the real world.”
