What is simulation
Simulation software explained
The best solution for now, and the future
What is simulation? Nowadays, the economy requires a fast and flexible reaction to the market. Customer demands become more and more dynamic and unpredictable. It is hard to tell how your logistics system reacts to future changes. You might want to know what the best solution is for now, but also for the future. This is hard to predict with static calculations, because systems have a lot of dependences, that are not static. The only tool that can analyze and improve these complex and dynamic systems, is simulation.
What is simulation | The model represents the system itself
Simulation is the imitation of the operation of a real-world process or system over time. The act of simulating something first requires that a model be developed; this model represents the key characteristics or behaviors of the selected physical or abstract system or process. The model represents the system itself, whereas the simulation represents the operation of the system over time. (Wikipedia.)
