A guide to simulation software, which is used to create models and run experiments.
To test changes to processes and product designs without using valuable real-life resources, many Lean Six Sigma practitioners turn to simulation software. The software allows them to create models based on a process or, in some cases, apply models from a built-in template library to run various experiments and analyses. Ultimately, simulation software can help practitioners make data-based decisions. Those considering software purchases should contact the providers directly.
