Save time and money with FlexSim.
How can simulation software do this? By helping you recreate any real-life process in a 3D computer model — and using that model to simulate hours, days, and even weeks of time in just seconds. You can learn more about your process and even identify areas for improvement. Easily make adjustments, test them without the risks and costs of physical experimentation, and reap the benefits of process improvement.
With FlexSim, you can quickly and accurately mimic your real-world facility, and that can lead to some very interesting information. Wouldn’t it be great to answer these important questions without disrupting normal operations?
- Can we do more with what we already have?
- Will this change help as much as we think it will?
- What happens if we shake up the staffing schedule?
Who uses FlexSim?
Any company in any industry can save time and money with FlexSim. Dozens of Fortune 500 companies and industry leaders worldwide have used FlexSim for their simulation needs. Why don’t you?
Your true-to-scale system
Is your facility two-dimensional? I didn’t think so. Any model that doesn’t take spatial relationships into account isn’t going to tell the whole story. We’re ready for you to drop in that CAD drawing and lay out your system in 3D, as nature intended. Well, if nature could provide a drag-and-drop library of rich, detailed objects and resources just waiting for your mouse clicks.
This means less effort when you get to show off your work and communicate your results. FlexSim is even compatible with the Oculus Rift, so you can have a completely immersive experience as you design and present your system.
A model everyone can understand
Data is wonderful, and you can bet FlexSim provides all the charts, graphs, and outputs you’ll ever need. But all those cool numbers and datasets don’t move the needle in a meeting or presentation the same way a life-like view of your system will. You want every stakeholder, client, manager, or whoever to really understand what’s going on and get just as excited about it as you are. To do that, you’re going to need a realistic 3D model that showcases exactly what they’ll see when your proposed changes are made.
But making a 3D model sounds hard…
I’ve got some news for you: making any model will take time. It’s probably the most time-consuming part of a simulation study. Shaving weeks, hours and days off the model building process is probably the greatest benefit simulation software provides (besides solving your actual problem, of course).
We designed FlexSim to be the fastest model building software there is. Spreadsheet applications and coding languages aren’t specifically designed to model a system, so they’ll actually take much longer than a dedicated simulation modeling product. And while there are plenty of quality simulation packages out there, each of them lack some crucial features that can make the difference between a two-week project and a months-long grind. Only FlexSim has all of these model building features:
Standard Object Library
Our objects behave just like the machines and people found in facilities all over the world. They have pre-built logic and task execution, so you can drag out and create a basic model in just minutes.
Drop-Down Lists and Properties
They sound simple, but these are unique in the simulation modeling world. You won’t believe how powerful they are until you give them a try. Simply check a box or choose an option from a list, and your resources will gain the logic and behavior for a wide variety of real-world situations.
Our latest feature, and a real game-changer. When things start to get complex you can map out your logic in this powerful flowcharting tool—no coding required.
