ProModel

ProModel 2011 SP2 is the latest version of the program by PROMODEL Corp.

The ProModel Optimization Suite is a discrete-event simulation technology that helps you to make better decisions faster. It is used to plan, design and improve new or existing manufacturing, logistics and other tactical and operational systems. It empowers you to accurately replicate complex real-world processes with their inherent variability and interdependencies, to conduct predictive performance analysis on potential changes, and then to optimize the system based on your key performance indicators.

ProModel’s methodology is devided into three steps:

1. Visualize

Create a dynamic, animated computer model of your business environment from CAD files, process or value stream maps, or Process Simulator models. Clearly see and understand current processes and policies in action.

2. Analyze

Brainstorm using the model to identify potential changes and develop scenarios to test improvements which will achieve business objectives. Run scenarios independently of each other and compare their results in the Output Viewer developed through the latest Microsoft® WPF technology.

3. Optimize

Immediately test the impact of changes on current and future operations, risk free, with predictive scenario comparisons. Determine optimal business performance with a high probability of meeting your business goals.

Typical applications of the ProModel Optimization suite include:

  • Implementation of the production
  • Reduction of time of each cycle
  • Decisions to invest in equipment
  • Production and capacity analysis
  • Identification and minimization of bottlenecks
  • Resource planning and allocation

ProModel is successfully used by world-renowned and leading manufacturers like: General Electric, DuPont, Ford, Philips, 3M, Boeing, IBM, Dell Computer, Siemens, AlliedSignal, Nokia, Whirlpool, Motorola, Lockheed Martin and many others.

Features:

  • Conduct Quick-start modeling—creating models graphically, with instant animation
  • Develop independent “what if” scenarios with no risk
  • Direct data import and export with Microsoft® Excel® 2010
  • Capture system randomness and variability utilizing over 20 statistical distribution types; directly import your own data
  • Distribute models to other divisions and departments with run-time licensing
  • Automatically create output reports developed in the latest Microsoft WPF Technology
  • Reuse code, merge models, and use submodel capabilities
  • Complete run-time debugging
  • Employ 3D Animation available (via post processor)
  • Analyze optimization with SimRunner.
  • Online help and calendars defining shifts and time off are also available.

Potential benefits range from increased production to huge savings in just one project.
