- FlexSim

The most powerful, capable, and easy-to-use 3D simulation software. FlexSim lets you model—and improve—existing and proposed systems.

FlexSim is a powerful yet easy-to-use software package for simulation modeling. A fast and accurate simulation engine is hidden behind drag and drop controls, drop-down lists, and many other intuitive features that make it accessible for anyone to build a model. All simulation models are created to scale and are presented using 3D visuals, so it becomes easy to view and recognize bottlenecks in the production line or other deficiencies within the system. FlexSim also gives decision makers the data to confirm their observations, with impressive data reporting and analysis built right into the software.

- Manufacturing Simulation

It allows organizations in the manufacturing industry to analyze and experiment with their processes in a virtual environment, reducing the time and cost requirements associated with physical testing.

- Material Handling Simulation

FlexSim is the best choice for modeling large, complex material handling, manufacturing, and automation systems.

- Warehousing Simulation

Warehouse simulation uses a computer model to better understand and improve a real warehousing system. Simulation is a proven technology that enables an organization to analyze and experiment with its warehousing process in a virtual setting, reducing the time and costs involved with physical testing. Storage, docks, conveyors, AGVs and even personnel can be quickly introduced and adjusted in the simulation model, letting companies determine how best to fully utilize their resources and maximize efficiency.

- Factory Simulation

Factory simulation is the process of using a computer model to understand and improve a real production system. Simulation technology allows organizations in the industry to analyze and experiment with their processes in a virtual setting, reducing the time and costs of physical testing. Materials, equipment, and personnel can all be considered within a simulation model, resulting in information that can maintain or improve production at the lowest possible cost.

- Airport Simulation

Airport simulation is the computer-based modeling of any real-world process involved with an airport. Simulation allows organizations in the industry to analyze and experiment with their processes in a virtual setting, reducing the time and cost requirements associated with physical testing. Security, gates and luggage services can be analyzed and tested within a simulation model, giving airports the opportunity to determine how best to fully utilize their resources at the lowest possible cost—and without compromising safety.

Why simulate airports? The need for efficiency in airports has never been greater, with security and labor costs continuing to rise each year. Successful airport authorities need to ensure that the costs associated with personnel, equipment and new technology are being considered and optimized. At its core, airport simulation is an inexpensive, risk-free way test your current terminal layout and security areas, always with the purpose of meeting passenger throughput goals at the lowest possible cost, and with the lowest achievable safety risk. And unlike spreadsheet-based analysis and forecasting, simulation offers a quick and efficient way to adjust parameters and re-simulate, saving valuable time with quicker results.

- FlexSim HC (HealthCare)

The most powerful, comprehensive, and easy-to-use simulation environment designed specifically for the unique challenges faced by today’s healthcare facilities.

- Healthcare Simulation Software


The FlexSim HC healthcare simulation environment allows you to analyze every facet of your patient flow and evaluate how potential changes will impact your healthcare system—all in a patient-centered virtual environment. The solutions you find will be accurate and will help your healthcare organization be as efficient as possible.
It’s risky, expensive, and time-consuming to change the real-world healthcare processes—simulate them first with FlexSim HC to get it right!

- 3D Visuals


Simulation can be just as visually compelling as it is analytically compelling. FlexSim HC’s fully 3D visuals, using the latest OpenGL graphics, allow you to see exactly what’s going on in the model as its running. It’s much easier to compare results when you can visually confirm what’s happening to your simulated healthcare system.

The 3D visuals also create opportunities for communication and teamwork among all the stakeholders. A simulation with accurate 3D models of the personnel, equipment, and furniture found in your healthcare facility is far more compelling than a simple chart. And when you combine the power of FlexSim HC with your favorite spreadsheet or database programs, anything is possible!

Patient Process Flow
The patient drives all the activity in a real-life healthcare setting, and the Patient Process Flow builder makes that behavior possible in a FlexSim HC model. You can drag out and arrange a flowchart of activities and processes based on a patient’s acuity, diagnosis, and any other user-defined attributes. This is the most complicated part of creating a model, and we’ve spent countless hours to keep it as intuitive and simple as possible.
Patients don’t move like parts in a manufacturing plant; they aren’t pushed from one process to another. Instead, the Patient Process Flow builder emulates the natural pull of human resources that come to the patient to provide service and guide them to the appropriate next step in their prescribed care process.


  • Nine pre-designed Activity Types to model how patients interact with staff and resources, plus customization to fit any unique situation.
  • Milestones to track patient progress in the model at specific points.
  • The flexibility to sequence patient care steps in a convenient flowchart-like interface.
  • Add stochastic distributions to accurately model the time it takes for delays and other events.
  • Choose the appropriate staff and resources based on criteria (like where the patient is located, which physician saw them earlier, etc.).

Next-Level Analytics
When your healthcare simulation model is complete, FlexSim HC has a wealth of powerful tools to help you evaluate and improve your processes. It starts with the Dashboard, where you will find dozens of pre-built charts that provide instant analysis on patient waiting times, staff utilization, milestones, and much more. These charts and graphs are also fully customizable so you can home in on the most crucial data.

When you’re ready to discover and test possible changes to your healthcare processes, the Experimenter tool will help you find the optimal solutions. Quickly change multiple sets of variables and see the results from many scenarios—without disrupting your facility.

If you want to add optimization to your toolkit, FlexSim is fully integrated with the OptQuest engine. This powerful scenario optimization package lets you set variables and constraints on your model to evaluate hundreds of possible solutions. You can even design experiments with multiple objectives to consider competing forces in the system. Find the best possible solution for your process with FlexSim and OptQuest.
