Excellent product with continous inovation

We use Simcad as a tool for us to simulation a future/existing warehouse. The overall experience is fantastic. It is easier to get started than other simulation tool. But it still required lots of training and exercise to become a expert. By developing different modules for different purpose, Simcad plays an important role in our warehouse solution design.

Pros

We used Simcad for warehouse simulation. The software is super powerful in data exchange and data analysis. It thoroughly reveal the pattern behind the warehouse operation. With scenario manger, you can compare different solutions and make a decision easily by comparing the key metrics and KPI that you cares.

Cons

Simcad needs to be more stable in supporting large dataset.

Reasons for choosing Simcad Pro

It is easier to get started than other simulation tool. Also, the pre-built metric and charts is very helpful for us pick it up at the beginning.

SImulation for Dummies

My overall experience has been great. The software is simple to use and the online support is second to none. Anytime I run into a road block or don't understand why the simulation is not performing as I think it should I just send it over to CreateASoft. They review the simulation, find the issue and then then do a conference call to walk me through the simulation showing me where I went wrong. This one thing alone has made my experience smooth. It is a peace of mind knowing you don't have to struggle or stress over building the simulation. There is always someone just a phone call away that is willing to help walk you through the issue.

Pros

Using the software is pretty simple. The online tutorials gets you started in the right direction and keeps things simple. Each step of the build phase is easy and requires very little knowledge of how to write code.

Cons

Wish there was a cheat sheet to explain each option and what it does. There are several options that can be clicked that do different things. If there was a cheat sheet to understand what each thing done it would make it easier.

Reasons for choosing Simcad Pro

It didn't require you to know code and during the demo of the simulation software the sales person did a quick simulation of one of our current lines and the results were very similar to how the line performed. This proved to me if the inputs were correct the simulation would work.

Very powerful software

Pros

The ability to customize practically every aspect of the software. There is always a way to implement what you have in your mind using the endless options

Cons

A lot of the features are hidden, uncover-able with the aid of a createasoft employee.

Very Capable Process and Equipment Simulation Tool

Simcad was used most recently by our company through a consultant to provide a warehouse simulation to one of our customers to test different methods for handling receipt of goods and picking of orders. It was extremely helpful in testing different ways to slot inventory and then measuring the impacts to the picking and receiving processes. The SKU and velocity slotting methods we thought would work best before we started the simulation where proven not to be the best method. The simulation will save the client significant labor costs as a result.

Pros

Simcad provides an appropriate level of 3D visualization tools to represent the equipment and processes being simulated while backing it with very capable data importing, data manipulation, and data reporting tools.

Cons

Although I wouldn't say it is missing as it takes additional time for the user to create and modify for real world accuracy, Simcad does not provide sophisticated realistic 3D graphics which other simulation and emulation software packages may provide.

Reasons for choosing Simcad Pro

We actually continue to work with all these software tools either directly or through third party consultants as they can each provide different advantages.

Simcad Pro is fast and easy

First manufacturing simulation was quick and easy. Had a nice complex model done in less than a day.

Pros

The software is easy to get started. You don't have to know a lot of coding to make it work for you.

Cons

I only got the 2 days of training. I would have paid for more in hindsight. I will arrange more!! Trainer was great!

Reasons for choosing Simcad Pro

More features for the same or less price. More user friendly.
