Simulation and BPMN are an obvious match. BPMN is used to depict process flow, and SIMUL8 is a world renowned process improvement tool.
Now, instead of just drawing out what a process looks like, business analysts can use simulation to optimize their entire business process from end-to-end.
SIMUL8 enables you to add simulation to your BPM diagrams, allowing your process diagrams to provide vital insights into how your process will perform in the real world.
For example, instead of estimating wait time, SIMUL8 will accurately predict queueing times and predict where bottlenecks in the process could build up.
Simulation is also valuable for quickly and easily experimenting with any ideas of how to improve your business process, without taking the risk of implementing it in the real world untested.
Virginia DMV identified a more efficient staffing model, capable of reducing customer waiting times to 20 minutes or less across all 74 customer service centers.
"Simulation offers a unique tool to simultaneously consider multiple factors and estimate all future customer wait times. As a result, our capacity has improved to plan around trends and future initiatives."
Gatwick Airport shortened the check-in process, reduced queue times and improved airline efficiency, without increasing investment.
"Using simulation has reduced the ripple effect of disruptions that could possibly affect passengers in other areas of the airport. We understand that all areas of the airport connect, and it’s important to manage the flow of activities."
You need to plan a new business process or design a new facility, but how can you be sure that it will be fit for purpose or what the most effective implementation should be?
Simulation is used by organizations to design, validate and optimize new business processes and facilities before investing in and implementing the real system.
Bottlenecks are common across most businesses, but with long, complex or intertwined processes they’re not always straightforward to find and solve.
Simulation is a powerful tool for bottleneck analysis, helping identify their root cause and enabling you to experiment with process changes to resolve constraints.
Gaining and maintaining stakeholder buy-in is crucial for the success of any process implementation or improvement project.
Simulation strengthens business cases by enabling business process ideas and proposals to be communicated through a visual, collaborative and evidence-based approach.
Investment in processes, people and technology is a key driver for business growth. But how can you be sure that investment will have the desired impact, or if there are better options for business growth?
Simulation is a powerful decision-making tool for assessing the feasibility and validity of capital investment projects - before investing time and money.
Our simulation software enables businesses to make rapid, profitable process planning and improvement decisions.
SIMUL8 allows you to import directly from Microsoft Visio and other BPM applications. Bring your process to life to visualize bottlenecks, test new ideas, and improve performance.
Build your simulations in SIMUL8 using our integrated BPMN library or import your existing BPMN diagrams into SIMUL8 to get the added benefit of simulation analysis instantly.
Drive simulations that accurately reflect your business processes using SIMUL8's built-in statistical distributions or connect your own data from Microsoft Excel, VB, and C++.
SIMUL8 provides extensive results in a range of exportable formats, as well as the ability to customize reports to analyze the results most relevant to you or stakeholders.
