FlexSim is a discrete event manufacturing simulation software developed by FlexSim Software Products, Inc. FlexSim is 3D simulation software that models, simulates, predicts, and visualizes business systems in a variety of industries: manufacturing, material handling, healthcare, warehousing, mining, logistics, and more. It uses an OpenGL environment to realize real-time 3D rendering and it is declared to be the only simulation software that incorporates a C++ IDE and compiler in the graphic modelling environment.
Why Industries look for Simulation?
- Focus attention on detail and improve the system.
- Enabled Sophisticated “what if” analysis.
- Forecast the performance of future model and calculate the performance of existing model.
- Would adding equipment in the manufacturing plant increases throughput or create an unforeseen bottleneck?
- To get immediate feedback on adding new product line and still meet production goals?
- Can we identify and minimize the causes of defects?
