Ensuring Success with Simulation

Simulation is an approximation of reality, the level to which it mimics reality depends on the tool and method used to implement the simulation model. The closer the simulation model mimics reality, the better its results and analysis are, while the faster the model is built and validated the greater the return on investment.

LEAN ====> Eliminate Waste. Increase Efficiency

It has been proven that Lean methods improve efficiency, reduce cost, and increase the overall profitability of organizations. Although different variations of these methods have been applied to different industries, the fact remains, that if implemented correctly, Lean methods work. Today's organizations need to be very adaptive, and very dynamic in the way they react to consumer demand; and what better way to adapt than with a dynamic tool? Avoid lost opportunity and lost revenue, by eliminating slow operational response with Simcad Pro 's patented dynamic technology.

The manufacturing environment is faced with many challenges that must be properly identified, analyzed and optimized prior to implementing any operational changes. Because of the integrated nature of manufacturing environments, each component has the ability and possibility of affecting another component within the system. Due to the high inter-connectivity of the system, special attention must be paid to possible changes and how these changes affect overall system productivity and functionality. With Simcad Pro dynamic simulation, manufacturing operations have the ability to mitigate and reduce risk with the proper planning of processes prior to the implementation of changes.

Hospital Patient Wait Times : One of the most unpredictable environments in the Healthcare Industry is the Emergency Department, ED. We have all been there, spending countless hours in a waiting room only to finally receive medical attention in a hallway, or if you were lucky enough to make it to an examination room, you sat hopeless, wondering if a doctor even knew that you existed. Excessive patient wait times can be tolling on the patient both physically and emotionally; affecting the morale of the patient, doctors, nurses and medical staff. Let's take a look at some of the most common contributing factors (and their implications) which lead to one of America's biggest challenges in the healthcare community today; optimizing the ED to reduce patient wait times and increase overall efficiency.

Healthcare Staffing: One of the key challenges facing clinics and hospitals today is their ability to control the number of care provider available based on the varying number of patients. With a variable patient arrival rate and treatment requirement, these organizations are faced with one critical decision; how many staff members do we need to keep patient wait time low and minimize the Left without being seen patients?

Hospital Patient Flow with Simcad Pro Health Simulation Software

With the seemingly ever increasing cost of healthcare, it is becoming more and more important to improve efficiency and to find a way to utilize resources to their fullest potential for the benefit of both the institution and the patient. After all, without patients, a medical institution would not be needed at all. This fact makes patients one of the most important factors in healthcare today. Simcad Pro Health is a sophisticated simulation engine that can be utilized to improve the overall efficiency of healthcare facilities and to improve patient flow and decrease wait times without sacrificing the quality of care being administered.

ABSTRACT:

The Eaton Cutler-Hammer facility has two separate areas of assembly. Eleven production lines compose the Load Center Assembly Area while 17 production lines compose the Metering/Meter Breaker/ACD Assembly Area. Currently, 11 fork trucks are used in the facility to bring parts from receiving to storage where they can be picked up when needed by the assembly lines. Fork trucks also take packaged goods from finished assembly to shipping. Fork truck drivers are often dedicated to one or two assembly lines in an attempt to meet their every need and to ensure that the assembly process does not incur downtime.

Molded Fiber Glass had a modest beginning in 1948 in Ashtabula, Ohio, near the shores of Lake Erie. Robert S. Morrison, our founder, and a handful of dedicated men and women worked diligently together to mass-produce the first commercial products using polyester resins and fiberglass reinforcements. The watershed event in the composites industry took place in 1953. MFG was chosen to produce all FRP parts for the Corvette. This led to the FRP boats, which MFG commercialized in 1955. Since those early days, MFG has grown substantially, sometimes with great difficulty.
