Watch our videos to see how quickly you can make confident decisions using Simul8 - the world's most intuitive and effective simulation platform.

From day-to-day questions to future strategy, you can use simulation to enhance decision making at every level and deliver huge impact.

Simulate and solve any business challenge

No matter your specific business challenges, organizations in every industry use Simul8 to improve processes, increase efficiency and reduce costs.

Increasing manufacturing throughput

From assembly to supply chain, Simul8 enables manufacturers to analyze, test and implement process changes to increase throughput, efficiency and profitability.

In this example, we'll identify how to increase throughput of an assembly line based on the production schedules feeding the line.

Reducing patient waiting times

From optimizing patient flow to improving population health, Simul8 enables healthcare providers to safely assess ways to improve efficiency and patient care.

In this example, we'll discover how to reduce queues in the waiting room while avoiding patients leaving without treatment.

Getting started videos

Introduction to Simul8 3 mins

Let's get to know Simul8! By taking your first steps to build an example simulation of a bank, you'll learn how to:

  • Start a new simulation and access your saved simulations
  • Access key features from the ribbon area
  • Add and connect Simul8's building blocks
  • Change the simulation clock properties to match your process

Arrivals and Activity Timings 3 mins

Let's add more detail to our bank simulation to reflect the real-life process. In this video, you'll learn how to:

  • Set arrival times for Work Items entering your simulation using the Start Point Schedule
  • Add timings to the different activities or tasks in your process

Applying Routing Options 2 mins

Let's apply some rules to route our customers to the various services in our bank. In this video, you'll learn how to:

  • Set rules around how Work Items enter the simulation
  • Use the Routing In and Routing Out features to direct Work Items to the different Activities in your simulation

Adding Resources 3 mins

We now need to add staff to make our bank services function like the real-life process. In this video, you'll learn how to:

  • Add and define the number of Resources in your simulation
  • Set the availability of Resources using the Shift Dependent and Resource Schedule features

Getting Results 3 mins

With our bank process set up, we can now collect and analyze our results! In this video, you'll learn how to:

  • Access and collate results with the Results Manager
  • Use the Trials feature to get average results from multiple simulation runs
  • Add onscreen charts and tables to view results as the simulation runs
