Simcad Pro® simulates your current operation to detect bottlenecks, inefficiencies, and plan for improvements. Reduce Risk and Maximize Efficiency.
Digital Twin Studio® monitors, predicts, and optimizes the operation in Real-Time based on an integrated AI and Machine Learning engine.
With over 30 years of experience, our team is ready to help you tackle your digital optimization initiative, automation migration, or new design validation.
A digital twin model is a virtual representation of the operation with all its constraints, capabilities, and activities. The digital twin behaves like the real system, reacts to events in a similar way, and is constrained by its limitations.
Digital Twin Studio® has all the constructs needed to create an actual duplicate of the live system with 99% accuracy. Digital Twin Studio® processes live and historical data to accurately predict the future state of the operation, and optimizes schedules, WIP, slotting, and more in real-time. It integrates AI and Machine Learning in order to learn from the past and optimize the future.
The digital twin is constantly monitoring the operation to provide efficiency optimization in real-time. As the live environment changes, the digital twin adapts and provides efficiency improvement recommendation.
Dynamic Simulation® provides a risk-free, interactive environment to visualize, analyze and optimize process flows. Dynamic interactive simulation analyzes the impact of improvement ideas, helps define and test automation solution, and detects flow bottlenecks and efficiency degradation. Using Dynamic Simulation, users can develop a step-by-step path to an optimal future state.
A dynamic simulator’s model building environment provides constructs that allow users to define the model without relying on code. Although coding may be required at some point, it is kept to a minimum in a simplified environment. Interactive Dynamic Simulators allow for model constraints to change while the simulation is running (almost game-like environment) which reduces model building, debugging, validation, and optimization time.
Simcad Pro® enables users to build simulation models in days rather than months using a patented, interactive modeling environment. Model validation is performed interactively and data analysis is readily available to compare to actuals. Simcad Pro® can be used to analyze an existing operation, design a new one, or validate automation and flow changes with minimum risk.

“Experience with Simcad Pro Health”
We have found the software to be extremely flexible and powerful - and have yet to encounter a situation that it is unable to accurately handle. The ability to fully model real-world variation has tremendous value over the use of spreadsheets or making decisions based on averages. The technical support from the company has been excellent which has been important in order to take full advantage of the capabilities. Finally, it is useful to be able to model individual steps in a system at whatever level of detail is needed for the analysis being performed.
—Jack R. Director, Process Improvement, Hospital & Health Care, from Healthcare

“New automation welding line design for a major automotive manufacturer”
Drop and drag technology is much simpler to use, coding is optional, great graphics and metrics to display your results, we have used Simcad Pro to design a new welding line with multiple specialized welders along with additional automation to load the line, clean and paint welded components. The line also included a number of robot to handle the part and a tray recovery and recirculation with cleaning. Simcad Pro helped us identify the proper buffer sizes to get the highest throughout of the welders (most expensive), identify the speed of the conveyors at different sections, and the proper sequencing logic needed to drive the system. We extensively used the built in scenario analyzer in order to determine the best solution. With down time and failure rate of each piece of equipment entered we were able to identify the proper OEE for the system. Model was presented in 2D and 3D with full animation.

Simcad Pro Elite was used for the analysis and optimization of a regional distribution center.
Using the interactive modeling capability we were able to quickly identify the optimal layout along with the required design changes. Optimization of processing behavior in receiving and put away was also a focus of the model. Our first project with Simcad Pro Elite yielded an initial return on investment of 900% along with ongoing yearly savings and a reduction of time required for receiving and put away by 50%.
—Fortune 100 Direct to Consumer Company
Utilizing Simcad for optimizing production schedules enabled us to achieve a reduction in lead time of 42%. The nature of our product is very variable and job priority constantly fluctuates. After working with other simulation tools it was beyond frustrating trying to update the model based on connectivity to SAP and real-time shop floor data. Simcad Pro enabled for us to achieve optimal scheduling of rush, and jobs with changing priorities through the interaction with SAP and shop floor controls. The integrated connectivity was a joy to work with as I am not a programmer or database expert.
—National Security Solutions Provider
Selecting Simcad Pro as our choice for AGV simulation was confirmed after our first project. With an initial cost avoidance of $500,000 along with ongoing increases in efficiency and additional throughput gains of 20% it was clear that Simcad Pro was the right choice.
—Global Food Production Company
Tasked with having to design a layout for a set of new work cells I explored many of the 3D simulation tools available on the market and found that I didn’t really want to build a 3D model and then have to define flow-charts, paths, networks, and other confusing model constructs. With Simcad Pro I found that the modeling experience did not require me to work in multiple different views as everything was in one easy to work with interactive 3D environment. This made the 3D visual aspect very easy to identify but, more importantly, the optimal logic and behavior required to achieve the necessary throughput was quickly defined using the dynamic modeling capability of Simcad Pro.
—Independent Contract Manufacturing Consultant
We worked with a major automation company and were given a $1,000,000+ proposal for new equipment. One of our corporate managers had doubts as to whether the proposed system could meet our throughput requirements. The automation vendor's analysis suggested that the system would meet our requirements (complete with 3D visualization and simulation of the solution). We decided to buy Simcad pro to validate the proposed system, and found that it was in fact not going to meet our needs.
