Introduction to Simio
This one day course provides a fast start to using Simio to effectively solve real problems. It starts with a brief overview of simulation technology and appropriate use, and the Simio modelling framework. Then the Simio Standard Library is used to solve a variety of problems exploring the fixed and dynamic objects, and the various ways entities move through the model and interact with other objects. It then overviews innovative features to work with model data and ends with an interpretation of simulation results. This course is appropriate for all audiences and is recommended for those who may use simulation infrequently, or who desire a lighter command of simulation technology. In particular the early sessions of the course are appropriate for those who manage or work with simulationists.
Accelerated Simio Training
This two- to three-day course is similar to the Simio Standard Training, but will focus on the Simio product itself, and will not cover general simulation topics like appropriate use of simulation, simulation benefits, statistical analysis, and project success skills. It covers all of the Simio-specific topics at a slightly faster pace and in greater detail. This course is often supplemented with topics of special interest to the attendees and/or project jump-start advice. This course is appropriate only for technical people with a previous simulation background.
Simio Standard Training
This three-day training session starts with the same material covered in the Introduction to Simio course. Significant time will be spent on extending model logic with add-on processes and building object definitions. It will add extra depth to the previously covered topics of working with model data and interpreting simulation results. It will end with a discussion of how to ensure the success of your simulation projects. This course is often supplemented with topics of special interest to the attendees and/or project jump-start advice. This course is recommended for anyone who is interested in doing large or frequent simulation projects.
All of the above courses are typically customized to the audience. Individual course topics may be covered in greater or lesser detail as determined by the allotted time and the needs of the audience. The instructor will provide printed manuals for registered participants unless agreed otherwise. Each participant will supply their own computer unless agreed otherwise, however temporary activation for Simio will be supplied. Full time faculty of academic institutions registered to teach Simio may attend most US courses at a 50% discount (not combinable with any other special prices or discounts).

We offer both standard and customized training classes that can be taught at your preferred time and location. These classes offer the opportunity to focus the training material on the types of applications that you encounter. The on-site training class can also be extended to include “jump-start” consulting on one or more specific modelling applications. Please contact us or one of our partners above for more information on this option.
Virtual training is live training conducted over the internet providing the maximum level of convenience with no travel costs or time. It is most suitable for small groups of one to six people and best conducted in multiple short sessions (typically 2 hours per session). Virtual training can be very effective. It can be customized to your needs and can focus on the types of applications that you encounter. The virtual training can also be extended to include “jump-start” consulting on one or more specific modelling applications. Please contact us or one of our partners above for more information on this option.
