Description

Our Online User Groups are a great opportunity to share ideas, learn, and connect with other users and the SIMUL8 team.

For our February Online User Group we were delighted to be joined by SIMUL8 expert, Jim Holtman from Kroger - a SIMUL8 user of 20 years, and Matthew Hobson-Rohrer and Glenn Holburn from the SIMUL8 team.

These slides feature a presentation from Matthew Hobson-Rohrer on the power of SIMUL8 and why it is important.

During the presentation, Matt describes what makes a simulation tool like SIMUL8 powerful, and why it is important to a simulation practitioner. He also explores some of the largest models built with SIMUL8, as well as other powerful features like database connectivity and the ability to create sub-processes to encapsulate detail.
