Makes Simulation fun and easy

Reviewed 3 years ago

Simio is an extremely powerful tool and it really makes one's life so much easier for simulations. Simio also does have a workbook that has lot of exercises that one can go through and learn a lot about the software. Once one has their head grasped around the concept, this software can save time, money, effort and provide accuracy.

Pros

I absolutely love using Simio. It is such a powerful tool and it makes sense why the premium paid version is so expensive. However the biggest pro I see is that there is a free version that can be used which can help one understand the world of simulation. Simio has everything one needs to perform the complicated simulation process that otherwise would require us to write 100s of lines of code and...

Cons

It is lot of work to learn this software and there are not much resources online readily available. Most resources are integrated to Simio and so looking at videos provided by Simio and reading the help section is the way to go. The free software however cannot simulate really huge simulation system and at that point one needs to purchase the paid version. getting around the software is daunting and there are lot of aspects one needs to know to figure out how to create their system.

Simio Software and Risk-based Planning and Scheduling (RSP)

Reviewed 7 years ago

Deciding which type of simulation software for a business to purchase can be an extremely difficult decision. Being faced with this decision we began to investigate and compare simulation software packages available on the market. After comparison, Simio was the clear choice for our business. Although most simulation software packages are extremely difficult and confusing to learn, Simio's many resources...

Simio review

Reviewed 3 years ago

We use Simio to help customers design solutions for using our autonomous material transport robots. Looking at problems such as fleet sizing, traffic congestion, routing, batch size, cart quantity etc

Pros

Can build a simple model that quickly demonstrates value to organization and then has power to scale up to much more complex as needed

Cons

It’s a VERY mouse intensive software. and many basic features are missing for making model professional looking.

Simio let you focus on value-add work

Reviewed a year ago

I used five products, I rate simio the most favored tool for me!

Pros

With its special process-chart like 'visual programming' technology, modeler will have more time to spend on value-added work in the simulation project. you cann't find the same level of ease of use for the competing products.

Cons

The 3D effect is still not that fancy. Cannot do very detailed motion-modeling.

Great value and support

Reviewed 4 years ago

Simulation of workflow processes.

Pros

Users have been very satisfied with the ease of use and setup process. After a downturn we needed to get users back on and the sales team made it very simple to onboard our users.

Cons

At the moment we are ramping back up from a downturn. Since this is a niche product, finding other applications for current licenses has been a challenge.

Great Simulation Package

Reviewed 5 years ago

I have used Simio for almost 2 months. It is by far the easiest simulation package that can do 2D and 3D animation. Simio is also very easy to simulate a queuing system and easy to export the result in csv format. One noticeable drawback is the default value that Simio record was not consistent with the meaning of analytical model. For example, when I define maximum system capacity, the recorded value after simulation run seemed to go over the defined parameter. Thus, I've got to define my own state variable to record what I need (number in the system). BTW, I haven't tried the movable resource and many features yet, so couldn't write a review about it. However, if I have to model those other features, I will write a review some more.

Pros

easy to do 2D and 3D animation.

Cons

the meaning of the recorded values from simulation may be defined differently from analytical model.

Great software!

Reviewed 4 years ago

It has helped with making recommendations on staffing models, equipment use, and the impact on turnaround times. The stakeholders appreciate the predictability component to be able to test different scenarios before trying it in real life.

Pros

It has extensive functionality that stakeholders can easily understand and see value in.

Cons

It does not have a good way to represent statistics by hour of day which is important to a hospital that runs 24/7.

Easy to learn and use, for professionals and students.

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

Easy to learn how to use it. Covers almost any need for an undergraduate course or project. Cost less than other software that have almost the same performance. Fast customer support.

Cons

Official SIMIO Tutorials are not updated and limited. I guess It's because courses are sold too, but the basic modeling should be available in several languages. Image/symbol importing not the best thing: Many images, but many no suited for insert in the models considering shape and size. It could have more specialized libraries.

Fantastic simulation software

Reviewed 4 years ago

We use this software to model some of our DC processes currently and will expand this over time to model more of our supply chain.

Pros

Endlessly customizable - you can pretty much model any process within your business and test variations quickly without investing in expensive prototyping processes.

Cons

Its plugin and extension functionality is still fairly basic and not as user friendly as it could be.
