Title: Arena


1
Arena
7.0
Enterprise Simulation Software
  • Rienk Bijlsma
  • Manager Simulation Operations

2
Why Simulation Is Growing
  • Assessing ROI is difficult
  • All benefits are not always clear and quantified
  • Estimating required investments is difficult
  • More people reaching management levels are aware
    of the capability of simulation ???
  • The world around us is changing faster and
    becoming more challenging
  • Available technology and computer speeds are
    advancing rapidly

3
Growth Areas For Simulation
  • Improving business processes work flow
  • Supply chain management
  • Customer relationship management
  • Infrastructure (traffic and computer networks)
  • Decision Support

4
Successful Deployment Of Simulation
  • Domain expertise
  • Insight in decision support methodology
  • Build up own expertise or use third party
  • Spread use after initial success
  • Selection of the right tool or tool set

5
Simulation Tool Requirements
  • Ease of use
  • Multiple application areas
  • Required level of detail complexity
  • Reuse of generic components
  • Fast execution of big models
  • Data exchange capabilities
  • Animation capabilities
  • Experimentation support
  • Pre- and post-run analysis capability
