FlexSim is excited to debut two advancements in simulation technology. The projects, developed with FlexSim’s partner in Italy, Flexcon s.r.l. in conjunction with Comau, have exciting applications in the ever-expanding world of Industry 4.0.
News and notes about FlexSim announcements, events, partnerships, and more.
FlexSim is excited to be represented at the VIII Gala of Logistics, an annual event focused on “implementing modern technologies into business life.” FlexSim executives Bill Nordren and Roger Hullinger will speak at the event.
FlexSim partner Cempel Consulting was featured in RFID Journal for creating a model that allows companies to compare how RFID stacks up against other methods of labeling used in their operations. It shows the benefits of switching to RFID within a realistic, visually compelling simulation.
Politecnico di Torino has finalized an agreement with FlexSim Software Products, Inc. to provide 3D simulation modeling software to the university. Students and professors will receive the same industry-standard software used by companies worldwide in the manufacturing, material handling, healthcare, warehousing, mining, and supply chain sectors.
FlexSim's truck haulage simulation application will be used by mining industry leader RPM in their HAULSIM product, the first industry-specific haulage simulation solution. It is the most powerful tool available for modeling, analyzing, visualizing, and optimizing a haulage network, providing confidence and accuracy in mine plans. “We are excited to be working with RPM in mining,” said FlexSim CEO Bill Nordgren.
In the Summer of 2013, students in and around the Chesapeake area had the opportunity to participate in the STEM Zombie Challenge at their local library. The event, which was sponsored by local organizations and supported by FlexSim, encouraged junior high and high school-aged students to work together, learn, and have fun while playing a game that was built into a FlexSim model.
FlexSim partnered with ModSim Connected to create a simulation game, Zombie Attack. Through support from the Commonwealth of Virginia, the game sought to enhance STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) skills and showcase modeling and simulation to the youth in Virginia.
