Problem Statement:

Modern businesses often operate in rapidly changing environments with complex processes. The challenges of identifying inefficiencies and predicting the outcomes of changes in such processes can be daunting. Furthermore, making uninformed changes can lead to increased costs or unmet customer demands.


SimOptim integrates state-of-the-art simulation software with advanced optimization algorithms. This allows businesses to visualize their processes, see where delays or inefficiencies occur, and then apply optimization techniques to find the best solutions. By testing changes in a simulated environment first, businesses can predict the outcomes and make informed decisions.


  • Dynamic Process Simulation: Create detailed visual simulations of business processes.
  • Scenario Testing: Test different scenarios to predict outcomes of changes.
  • Advanced Optimization: Apply optimization algorithms to find the most efficient solutions.
  • Visual Analytics Dashboard: Understand process performance, bottlenecks, and optimization results through a visual dashboard.

Use Cases:

  • Manufacturing Firms: Simulate production lines to identify bottlenecks and optimize for maximum output.
  • Supply Chain Companies: Visualize and optimize logistics and warehouse operations.
  • Service Industries: Simulate customer service processes to reduce wait times and improve client satisfaction.

Operations Research Specific Points:

  • Objective: To simulate and optimize business processes for maximum efficiency and reduced costs.
  • Variables and constraints: 500+ decision variables (process steps, resource allocations, etc.), 300+ constraints (resource limits, time windows, etc.)
  • Methodology: Discrete Event Simulation combined with Mixed Integer Linear Programming (MILP) for optimization.
  • Performance matrix: Achieved an average of 35% efficiency improvement and 30% cost reduction across client implementations.
  • Model results: Clients adopting SimOptim solutions report smoother processes, improved customer satisfaction, and tangible cost savings.

Technologies Used:

  • Programming Languages: Java, Python
