Simaco Inc., a new St. Laurent, Que.-based company, is looking to help Canadian executives apply computer simulation and modeling to help make informed business decisions.
“A computer simulation model is a risk-free environment for executives to test their ideas before approving money for major projects,” explained Steve Pare, Simaco’s managing director and chief executive officer. “Bad ideas are eliminated early in the design process while good ideas are further refined.”
According to Pare, Simaco is the sole Canadian provider of Simio LLC’s new simulation software, a game-changing product that makes simulation software easier for decision-makers to use. The software provides the ability to create modeling components without writing computer code, and can automatically convert two-dimensional objects into 3D animations for more precise simulation.
Pare has been involved in the world of simulation for over 15 years. He has assisted organizations including Alcan, Bell Canada, and the Department of National Defense solve problems by applying a combination of simulation, data analysis, and optimization.
“With our simulation and modeling technology, analysts can build virtual facilities and test ideas for changes to equipment, staffing, scheduling, processes, and business rules much faster and easier than before,” Pare said. “It brings the benefits of simulation to a new group of users.”
