Academic computer classroomThe new academic year is in progress..
Before the start of the first semester, the reevaluations of the current academic programs are conducted. As a result, we are now celebrating that we’ve sold our 930th seat of our Enterprise Dynamics Classroom licenses!

As of September, more than 2100 students are going to be trained in building and analyzing simulation models during various student projects throughout their academic education. We are very proud to be a part of this process. The Enterprise Dynamics simulation software is used as teaching material for various academic courses like industrial engineering, econometrics, logistics, operations research and/or management and supply chain management. Working with simulation software helps students to understand the effects of different queuing strategies, uncertainty, machine utilization, rework, work-in-progress, safety stocks, tool sharing and so on. The teaching materials in the form of tutorials, a collection of case studies, movies and slides, support students in learning the basic concepts of simulation and reflects a variety of real life applications.

Now multiple (international) technical universities will educate their students in simulation modelling using the Enterprise Dynamics software.

“Enterprise Dynamics is much appreciated for teaching as well as research purposes. The flexible ED Classroom solution enables us to support students and researchers with a powerful tool to test and enhance understanding within modern operations and supply chain management. The easy and quick access to build simple models to show and illustrate various challenges and optimization possibilities is a key recommendation from students. Researches as well find Enterprise Dynamics indispensable as they can narrow down complex challenges and test reconfigurations and easily present valid and reliable results.” – Professor Hans Henrik Hvolby, Aalborg University

“As an integrate part of my PhD studies I have used Enterprise Dynamics to simulate the material and information flow of a grocery retailer with more than 200 stores included. Building new atoms gave me the option to easily model what was necessary. In my case, the ability to track perishables products along the supply chain and constantly knowing when each individual product would expire, as well as implementing my own allocation and replenishment policies and put them under pressure. Enterprise dynamics was able to simulate one year of performance in under a minute – making it an incredibly fast solution to test and verify my research.” – Phd. student Kasper Kill, Aalborg University and Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU)
