Computerized Process Simulation


Sometimes it’s hard to envision the effect of changes on the output of business process. It can be prohibitively expensive (not to mention risky) to make changes to your business processes.

Simulating the processes allows you to see effect of changes, without having to actually make those changes to your processes. We have the ability to create computer-based process simulation models that you can use to maximize your overall confidence with the proposed changes.

Scope And Deliverables

A computer simulation or a computer model is a computer program that attempts to simulate an abstract model of a particular system, to gain insight into the operation of those systems.

Traditionally, the formal modeling of systems has been via a mathematical model, which attempts to find analytical solutions to problems which enables the prediction of the behaviour of the system from a set of parameters and initial conditions. Computer simulations build on, and are a useful adjunct to purely mathematical models in the analysis of business processes.

There are many different types of computer simulation. The common feature they all share is the attempt to generate a sample of representative scenarios for a model in which a complete enumeration of all possible states of the model would be prohibitive or impossible. Simulation allows you to quickly see the impact of changes to your business processes in a risk-free manner.

What We Will Do

  • Develop detailed process flow diagrams of the business process being studied.
  • Collect relevant process information and data.
  • Create computer simulation model.
  • Verify and validate the model.
  • If desired, create several alternative possible future processes.
  • Modify the current state model to reflect the future state scenarios.
  • Run the future state models and collect the data.
  • If desired, provide training on the use of the computer simulation.

What We Need You To Do

  • Provide us with access to key relevant employees, process owners and managers.
  • Authorize these resources to provide us with the required information.
  • Provide us with required access to your IT systems.
  • Ensure management availability to review and approve the team’s recommendations in a timely manner.
  • Provide appropriate working space for the team’s activities.
  • Purchase any required simulation software in a timely manner.

SatiStar's Experience Makes The Difference!

  • . . . worked extremely well with the departmental and site managers . . . goal oriented and met the objectives set within the quoted budget and ensured the results were attained for the Company.

  • The guys from SatiStar did more in one week than we were able to do in 6 months.

  • Achieving ISO registration was far less onerous than we thought, our employees really rallied to the cause. The registration effort really brought us closer together as a team, and SatiStar really came through for us when we needed them.

  • We started this process a year ago with Mickey helping us create a spaghetti map of our processes on the whiteboard, and then his team guided us through their streamlining methodology and got us to where we are today. Our processes now look nothing like the spaghetti map – and we’re much more efficient today

  • This projected cycle time reduction of over 80% annual cost savings amounting to over 3% of sales, one-time savings of roughly $10 million, and working capital reduction of roughly $30 million really have us excited!

  • An outstanding success with Motorola’s vendor audit! What made this an exceptional achievement is that it typically takes 4 to 5 attempts to pass this audit. SatiStar’s expertise made it easy to avoid all the extra attempts.
