What will be covered: This one day course provides a fast start to using Simio, a 3D rapid modeling capability, to effectively solve real problems. It starts with a brief overview of simulation technology and appropriate use, and the Simio modeling framework. Then the Simio Standard Library is used to solve a variety of problems exploring the fixed and dynamic objects, and the various ways entities move through the model and interact with other objects. It then overviews innovative features to work with model data and ends with interpretation of simulation results.

Who should attend: This course is appropriate for industrial engineers, process analysts and for educators looking to introduce state of art technology into their simulation instruction. It is also recommended for those who may use simulation infrequently, or who desire a lighter command of simulation technology. This course is also appropriate for those who manage or work with simulationists and would like to better understand the technology.
