Strategies to Evaluate New or Redesigned Systems Before YOu Implement Them - Dramatically Reducing Costs, Cycle time, Error Rates, Inventory, and Down-Time! In today's razor's-edge business world, your organization can't afford to implement untested systems and processes. Before you go 'live', simulation of these new methods is vital for assessing how they will perfomr when subjected to real-world pressures over time. Simulation Modeling Methods outlines the process simulation methods used to help major companies substantailly increase both the efficiency and the cost-effectiveness of their most important systems. This dynamic book/CD package was specifically designed to give you a working template for: Process simulation assessment and planning. Implementation steps for effective simulation. Results measurements for continuous improvement. While one-dimensional tools such as flowcharts and spreadsheets have their place, you will need effective computer simulation methods to predict important 'how', when, why, and what-if' scenarios. Simulation Modeling Methods combines the latest process improvement research and a hands-on, multimedia CD-ROM disk with real-world success stories, such as IBM's decreasing distribution costs by $40 million per year and Hallmark Cards' reducing cycle time form 80 to 8 days. These success stories and others will help you place new and improved systems into live-action scenarios. The result will be dramatically lowered implementation costs, scheduled slippages, and on-the-job errors, providing a keen competetive edge in today's highly charged global marketplace.
