With our Witness simulation software, we are able to create statistically accurate models capable of representing how real-life systems would respond in different situations. We can then more accurately answer What If…? questions without needing to disturb the real-life systems we are emulating.
We can also use discrete event simulation to model individual events that occur at given times, and can take into account associated resources and constraints and see how they interact. There is scope to introduce simulated randomness and variability to explore how a real process — such as a manufacturing flow line — would respond in particular circumstances.
