MODELING OF COMPLEX SYSTEMS
KROMITE uses discrete event simulation modeling to help you gain insight into throughput, constraints, costs, and resource needs within a complex system (e.g. R&D, Manufacturing, Distribution). We have built simulations for a number of pharmaceutical and agricultural companies and we specialize in customized simulation models that generate insightful output as well as real-time visualizations of the system under study. This type of modeling allows for what-if analyses at a cost that is orders of magnitudes less than building a sample pilot system.
In the healthcare and life science industry, simulations help with: pipeline analyses that incorporate projects and resources from research to launch, and impact assessment of key events such as mergers, spinoffs, and licensing. These models identify capacity constraints and over-capacity likelihood in complex operations, such as R&D, in the presence of uncertainty. They also help with resource management, infrastructure what-if analyses, portfolio management, and long-term financial forecasts.
At Kromite we do quite a bit of simulation modeling with a variety of tools. One of which is ExtendSim. Over the course of our modeling projects, we have developed a number of blocks that improve the interface, performance, and usability of ExtendSim. You can request the Kromite Blocks library HERE. There are other blocks and tools that we have developed that are specific to certain projects. While we are not able to share those directly, please contact us to learn about the powerful tools that we have developed.
The contents of the library include:
Bar chart: displays a bar chart on the model worksheet. This can be stacked, percent or clustered
Checkbox: provides a “clonable” checkbox for the model worksheet or notebook
DB Clone: provides a “clonable” database table for the model worksheet or notebook. Can be used as input, output or both
Fields from records: Automatically creates a table based on the values in another table. It’s a quick easy way to create large tables.
Find DB reference: Helps to find all of the equation blocks in a model that reference a particular database table, field, and record
Write DB: Faster, smaller block for writing to database tables. It does not do everything that the Write block from the Value library does, but its 1/3 the size and 3x faster.
