SIMUL8 Animation for Visio allows users to animate Visio flowcharts or work flow diagrams within the Visio program to help analyze process efficiencies. SIMUL8 Animation for Visio provides additional dialogs for Visio users to enter process times and capacities at each of the Visio Shapes. This data is then used to simulate the real life operation of the business - accounting for the typical variability that will occur around the expected processing times. SIMUL8 Corporation‟s CEO Mark Elder notes, “ The rise in popularity of flowcharting software creates a special opportunity for easy-to-use animation software. Traditional flowcharting programs, such as those available in the Microsoft stable, are static. SIMUL8 Animation for Visio shows what will happen when products or people actually start to flow through the business, allowing flowcharting users to measure and present their ideas for process improvement.” “SIMUL8 Corporation offers even more simulation power to our users with their new SIMUL8 Animation for Visio software product. It‟s a powerful „what-if‟ animation and analysis tool, giving users the ability to see their business with a new perspective, all within a familiar Visio environment,” said Mike Gelon, Visio‟s Director of Solutions Marketing and Consulting. “We are pleased to be working with SIMUL8 to provide enhanced simulation and productivity tools to our customers.” Any business with a flow of work, be it people, products, orders, hits on a web site, or calls in a contact center can benefit from using simulation. SIMUL8 Animation for Visio is designed to make this an easy process by making the technology directly available to Visio users.
