Beginning with FlexSim 2021, we will no longer be releasing 32-bit versions of FlexSim. FlexSim’s system requirements will include using a 64-bit Windows operating system. We believe this change will improve the quality of our software and maintain an exceptional user experience.
News and notes about FlexSim announcements, events, partnerships, and more.
For the fourth straight year, FlexSim Simulation Software sponsored the Lean Simulation Competition in Brazil. Each year, a similar competition is held where students have the opportunity to use FlexSim to face and solve a complex consulting project, problem or planning.
Winners to the FlexSim Latino American Competition of Logistics Simulation were recently announced during the Latin American Congress Closing Awards event in Ecuador on March 13. Students competed to deliver simulation-based solutions for a real-world problem in South America.
FlexSim software was used in the recent Latin America simulation competition. Teams, which ranged from all across South America, submitted solutions and 3D simulation models to solve distribution handling and operating problems.
FlexSim was recently featured in a virtual reality social innovation competition that aimed to solve existing social and environmental issues in Hong Kong. Students were trained to use the simulation software to create their own 3D models and judged on their design, innovations, and overall presentation.
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.
Esprit engineering school in Tunisia put on a simulation competition involving 140 students and 27 teams.
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 was recently featured in the European Mensa Annual Gathering (EMAG) in Poland. FlexSim specialist, Dawid Dabal, spoke on FlexSim simulation software and its dynamic technology in his presentation, and how ‘smart technology’, such as simulation, can benefit anyone seeking solutions to complex problems.
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.
