Abstract


Although there are many Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) products on the market, the solution offered by Simio has a number of unique and compelling advantages. This presentation will outline six compelling points of the Simio approach to planning and scheduling that distinguishes it from other solutions on the market. It will show how simulation technology could be used to generate schedules with interactive Gantt charts and Logs and how the underlying simulation model is then used to perform a Risk Analysis on the generated schedules
