Predictive and Prescriptive Analytics - SimTrack

Real-Time Integrated Solution Providing Predictive Analytics and Prescriptive Analytics

Make your data work for you - turn existing data to
an actionable predictive system with SimTrack®

Live Data generated from the predictive model
provides the current and future status of the operation.

In the prescriptive model mode, real-time optimization and validation is performed in the background.
For each potential optimization method, and similar to the predictive environment,
a set of Monte Carlo simulation is run in order to determine the viability of the solution.

Real-Time Optimization

Real-Time Optimization generates a number of
Actionable Potential Improvements 

The system reacts to the optimization suggestion in different ways depending on its configuration.
Optimize and maintain schedule adherence in real-time based on live system feedback.
SimTrack® open architecture enables it to interact with a multitude of live data systems –
RFID, BarCode, GPS, PLC, WMS, EMR, ERP, MRP, or RTLS systems, etc..

 

 
 

 

 

Powered by On-The-Fly Dynamic Simulation

Interactive Simulation that allows for on-the-fly model behavior
definition and constraint changes while the simulation is running

Intelligent models consistently learn from the current environment, readjust on-the-fly and
consistently perform validation, analysis, and optimization without user intervention

An Intelligent Self-Evolving Model With Real Time Connectivity

Whether the models are connected to a PLC data feed,
ERP/MRP/WMS, or RTLS systems, they need to be capable to self evolve
in order to support the varying environment they represent.

Self-Modifying models are able to detect changes in the external environment and
constantly evolve in order to support the new constraints. An example of an evolving model
would be adding new equipment, changing the pick path in a warehouse, adding a new rack,
inserting a new machine into the flow, or generating a new assembly type.

Live Environments Are Constantly Changing

 
  • New locations are added, equipment modified, rooms expanded, resources and more are being modified, schedules changing.
  • For predictive analytics to operate with a high degree of confidence,
    • Models need to self evolve based on the real-time data.
      • Adding a new rack, inserting a new machine into the flow should be handled without user interaction.
      • Constraints to the added component are learned from the live data feed and applied dynamically to the model.
  • Minimum user intervention.
 
 

 

Distributed Simulation Modeling and Optimization

Multiple Models Representing Different Activities

 
Hybrid models, some models are running in parallel while others are running sequentially.
  • Models can run on independent workstations, virtual machines/cloud, all contributing to the Predictive results.
  • Auto-Start of new models based on Predictive Analysis.
  • Models auto-sync based on predetermined constraints. 
  • Models can rewind and forward based on the state of related models.
