LOUISVILLE, KY--(Marketwired - February 18, 2014) - Advanced Solutions, an Autodesk Platinum Partner and Authorized Training Center (ATC), today announced the newly designed innovation offering, Workflow Simulation + Analysis.

Advanced Solutions' Workflow Simulation + Analysis empowers businesses to make informed decisions which improve efficiency, eliminate waste and increase profit. Using a structured process, the workflow simulation team collects data, builds models, designs alternatives, validates designs, and simulates "what if" scenarios. This process results in workflow data, which informs business decisions to reduce operational waste.

As part of the Advanced Solutions 2013 Autodesk University luncheon, the Industrial Engineering team gave a preview of the new service offering, providing guests with a chance to answer some simple questions about their day-to-day business process.

The presentation introduced 7 kinds of operational waste experienced by every business:

  1. Over-production
  2. Transportation
  3. Inventory
  4. Over-processing
  5. Waiting
  6. Defects
  7. Motion

Traditional Simulation Modeling is the process of creating and analyzing a digital prototype of a physical model or process to predict outcomes for the real world. Taking this concept to the next level within the area of workflow simulation, Advanced Solutions is able to predict business performance using a digital workflow of systems that integrate people, materials and energy in productive ways.

Simulation industry leader, C. Dennis Pegden, Ph.D., Founder and CEO of Simio LLC, says, "Simulation modeling enables organizations to make better decisions by letting them see the impact of proposed changes before they are implemented." Advanced Solutions has developed Workflow Simulation + Analysis utilizing this very philosophy.
