We provide math-based decision support system that you, as a decision maker, can use to generate more profit and improve the processes performances. Whether you are struggling with the formulation of strategic decisions on planning future events or you wish to lend a hand to your staff in making short-time decisions on the execution of operations our tools and our specialist team can help you. ACT Operations Research’ name and brand is already familiar to large organizations of complex processes and large-scale systems. Standing beneath real investments in research, we build best-of-breed “decision support math-technology” which has been proving to stand out competing technologies from global players. We draw out the optimization potential of your operations while unleashing pent-up profit margins by embedding our solutions in your systems. What’s more, with us you refrain from taking unconscious risks as we model the behaviour of your systems imitating the real world ahead you play live with your business decisions. At ACT Operations Research, we strive to make the difference in this ever-increasing innovation demanding world working hard to reach a world’s leading position in advanced decision support systems built on optimization, simulation, forecasting and process control expertise.

SIMIO - the new software for simulation projects
    Introduction to SIMIO Simulation Software - Dennis Pegden

The new generation of simulation software!
Built on the "Intelligent Object" paradigma, SIMIO has been thought and designed by Dennis Pegden (co-creator of Arena Simulation software and of Siman simulation language). SIMIO is particularly known for its modeling speed and 3D functionality. With simulation you can model real systems to analyze their behaviour while testing the assumptions either they are technical (e.g., mission-critical) or economic (e.g. return on investments in concurrent projects).

Usage model

Ease of modeling
SIMIO renders the modeling process much easier by providing object-oriented paradigma that radically changes the way objects are built and used. The litmus test for every simulation technology is its capability to model with ease and speed the real world: SIMIO have power and flexibility to easily model complex systems.

Point of strengths
SIMIO objects are created by levering on simple graphic process flows without programming. This empowers non-experienced users to easily build own modeling objects as well as to ponder the usage and execution of libraries.


3D visualization and animation
SIMIO has been designed to render 3D modeling a simple and natural process. For the first time in the simulation field you can use a rich 3D functionality with no complexity and a little effort.


.NET-based core technology
At the forefront of software-based approach to design modeling verification and simulation, .NET technology integrates in SIMIO while drastically reducing the execution scale and complexity clearing the ground for further improvements with ease.

Arena simulation comes out with a portfolio of products covering diverse business needs

SIMIO Express

Now for the first time you can rely on a powerful and fully functional 3D object-based modeling and animation system at an affordable price ($4,850). SIMIO Express uses the SIMIO Standard Library to provide you with a powerful and flexible 3D modeling environment for rapid modeling. SIMIO Express is ideal for the casual user of simulation that wants to rapidly build eye-catching and realistic models of their systems. Experience the real difference in modeling speed that a true 3D object-based modeling environment gives you compared to older 2D, process-only based tools.

SIMIO Design Edition
SIMIO Design is the standard offering while being fully functional with 3D object-based modeling and animation functionalities. This version includes the Standard Library for getting started as well as to create and distribute customized libraries.


SIMIO Team Edition
SIMIO Team lets you build and distribute models using the freely available SIMIO Evaluation version as a runtime platform. Models built with the Team Edition will run and generate results with the SIMIO Evaluation version. SIMIO Team is ideal for consultants that want to deliver a running model to their customer without requiring them to purchase SIMIO.


SIMIO Evaluation Edition
SIMIO Evaluation Edition is a free trial version of SIMIO. This version of SIMIO puts no limits on what you can model and is fully functional for small models. The ability to save your work is disabled for larger models. You can also use the SIMIO Evaluation Edition to open and run models that have been built by the SIMIO Team Edition. Once you purchase a license you may activate the evaluation software and begin saving your models.


SIMIO Scheduling Edition
Currently under development, the SIMIO Scheduling Edition is a Finite Capacity Scheduling (FCS) tool that is built on SIMIO and offers unique capabilities and benefits for scheduling, reduced cost of implementation, and ongoing significant customer value.

SIMIO Academics Edition
Fully functional versions of SIMIO are available to students and faculty. Complete information can be found here.
