Simulation ?

To learn more about simulation...

Using computer modelling and computer simulation means being able to freely experiment scenarios to better choose the optimal solution, with a very realistic approach. Simulation takes into account the dynamic behavior of a system: a part waiting for another, shutdowns, shared resources, random phenomena, and so on.

Simulation is the only method enabling industrial managers to predict the final performance of a project. This technology covers many aspects of decision making: investment dimensioning, plant monitoring, launching of new products, changing volumes and rhythms of production, planning, etc.

Simulation uses an accurate software prototype (the model) to test various parameters. It considers a system globally, analysing its flows dynamically. This approach has been tested in the whole industrial world, and also applies to all systems where you can isolate flows (transportation, medicine, after-sales services…).

Simulation is meant for all operational units in a company: production, planning engineering, scheduling, projects, logistics, etc.

1Point2 has been using simulation techniques with enthusiasm for over 20 years, adapting them to the characteristics of each branch: chemistry, iron & steel industry, car components, consumer goods, pedestrians flows.

Examples of simulation in the fields of: Health, Chemicals, Logistics, Manufacturing, Food industry, Services, Education & Research.
