Demonstration of Simio Software

Simio LLC, the maker of Simio simulation software recently donated approximately $150,000 worth of software to the University of Colorado Denver Business School. The grant from Simio provides the CU Denver Business School with 15 copies of the company’s signature software.

Dr. Gary Kochenberger, a professor in the Decision Sciences program at the CU Denver Business School was instrumental in working with Simio to procure the donation of their signature software. The software provides a true object-based 3D modeling environment which lets you construct your 3D model in a single step from a top-down 2D view, and then instantly switch to a 3D view of your system. You simply drag and place your 3D objects from an Object Library into your facility view of the model. In addition, all Simio model-building products directly integrate with Google Warehouse to allow you to quickly download from a massive library of freely available 3D symbols to easily and quickly add realism to your models.

The software donated to the CU Denver Business School by Simio includes the Standard Library for getting started with Simio, but adds a unique and powerful capability (patent pending) that allows you to modify the logic of your objects using add-on process-oriented logic. This version of the software also provides you with the ability to create and distribute your own custom modeling libraries. Simio Design is the ideal product for professional modelers that want to have full control over complex process logic or want to develop new modeling libraries focused on specific applications areas.

Faculty and students in Decision Science MS program at the CU Denver Business School will be the primarily users of the donated software.  Courses such as Service Operations, courses on simulation, and Practicum courses will be the major beneficiaries of Simio’s generous donation, but Simio’s software will be utilized for a variety of research activities.

Simio’s simulation software can be used for a number of applications. Projects for which faculty and students may utilize Simio include, but are not limited to:

  • Advanced Analytics
  • Airports
  • Manufacturing
  • Supply Chain
  • Healthcare
  • Military
  • Mining
  • Ports
  • Lean Six Sigma

As part of the grant from Simio, students enrolled in a registered simulation course are also eligible to purchase a one-year product license, to install Simio on their personal computers, for just $25.
