“Simcad Pro is fast and easy”
First manufacturing simulation was quick and easy. Had a nice complex model done in less than a day. The software is easy to get started. You don't have to know a lot of coding to make it work for you. I only got the 2 days of training. I would have paid for more in hindsight. I will arrange more!! Trainer was great!
—Matt H. Value Stream Manager - Operations Automotive, from Hunter Engineering
“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
It's so versatile - we use Simcad Pro for modeling & capacity planning, virtual simulated work environment for training, and we also plan to use if for design and proof of concept. There are so many advantages to having such a dynamic tool at our disposal.
—Sarah N. Senior Associate, Professional Training & Coaching, from Solomon EOS, LLC
“SimCAD Pro is a great value, with excellent customer support, and easy to use for the average person”
Drop and drag technology is much simpler to use, coding is optional, great graphics and metrics to display your results, Monte Carlo tool is very helpful from numerous runs, and the value stream mapping feature is also an advantage. SimCAD Pro is simple connect to Microsoft Access and Excel files, has an abundance of analysis tools to extract data and identify issues, and the option to create 3D graphics for customer visibility is top notch. Additionally, this software has an incredible value and versatile functionality compared to other software programs that are grueling to program, cumbersome to use, and expensive to train employees.
—Jason S. Industrial Engineer, Unspecified, from Northrop Grumman
“SimCad Health Care”
the overall experience is great I am especially impress with the support for any issues and the help you receive from the corporate office. I like the fact that you can design it to what you need and that you can customize the process to your work flow.
—James W. Senior Clinical Analyst | Emergency Services, Hospital & Health Care, from HCA
“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.
—Radwan M. General Manager, Machinery, from ProBeam USA
“Experience with Simcad Pro Health”
Overall, we have really enjoyed working with the CAS staff and have used the SW for multiple space planning projects (with a number of projects in que). The SW is pretty easy to use (particularly for standard functions) and very well supported. The CAS staff are very responsive, knowledgeable, and friendly.
—Caitlin S. Senior Planning Analyst, Hospital & Health Care, from The University of Kansas Health System
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.
—Regional Distribution Facility
For a non-engineer, I found the UI and building base process models easy to learn which made for a shorter learning curve. The interface is very easy to use and the drag a drop functionality helps you create models very quickly.
—Simcad Pro User
I look forward to working with Simcad Pro software and CreateASoft’s excellent support staff on future projects within MetalTek International -Wisconsin Centrifugal Division.
Not only did it allow [them] … to consider alternative processes quickly, but the animation allowed people on the assembly line to see their operation in action and understand the timing of the whole process.
I use Simcad Pro for capital equipment sales so I can’t carry around heavy automation and when a DVD can’t help a customer visualize how my automation will impact their business I can run a customer’s current state vs future automated state, with their actual data, over any time period. Not only is the ROI validated but the customer can see how fixing one process also impacts associated process i.e. additional savings and improvement.
Using Simcad Pro, we were able to reveal exactly how bottlenecks resolved, and demonstrate how our implementation would provide the proper throughput required by our client. The total value of this project will exceed $1.8 Million - we now have the contract and purchase order.
—Automation Technologies Industries
Visibility of the process. Once you have a working model it’s amazing how you can see things that you would have missed. Then you can quickly make changes to determine the best system improvements to make without spending any money! The visualization also makes it much easier to sell this to your potential customers.
—Gavin – SlewPro
The graphical interface and direct correlation of objects moving through the system using an image of the CAD representative cell is extremely helpful when explaining a process to our customers.
Pre-sales simulation runs dramatically improve our ability to develop realistic proposals for our customers.
“The biggest benefit has been the ability to gain meaningful insights on the impact of system changes to resource utilization and flow through the facility. Factors that may have been overlooked such as bottlenecks or the true impact to resource utilization can be uncovered and visually displayed for others to see.
—Patrick - Process Design
“I [also] really like the way the process extensions have been simplified to make incorporating logical statements into your model for advanced functionality manageable.
