Pros: Drop and drag technology is much simpler to use, coding is optional, great graphics and metrics to display your results, Monte Carlo tool is very helpful from numerous runs, and the value stream mapping feature is also an advantage.
SimCAD Pro is simple connect to Microsoft Access and Excel files, has an abundance of analysis tools to extract data and identify issues, and the option to create 3D graphics for customer visibility is top notch. Additionally, this software has an incredible value and versatile functionality compared to other software programs that are grueling to program, cumbersome to use, and expensive to train employees.

Cons: The scenario analyzer can be draining on your processor and does slow down the speed of the model run (s). The work order optimizer feature can be a difficult to set-up and not a value-added feature. These issues are trivial since the software is multi-purpose and still very affordable.

Pros: We have used Simcad Pro to design a new welding line with multiple specialized welders along with additional automation to load the line, clean and paint welded components. The line also included a number of robot to handle the part and a tray recovery and recirculation with cleaning.
Simcad Pro helped us identify the proper buffer sizes to get the highest throughout of the welders (most expensive), identify the speed of the conveyors at different sections, and the proper sequencing logic needed to drive the system. We extensively used the built in scenario analyzer in order to determine the best solution.
With down time and failure rate of each piece of equipment entered we were able to identify the proper OEE for the system.
Model was presented in 2D and 3D with full animation.

Cons: No issues encountered. the application performed as intended, and support was excellent. We got our answers within a day, at the most.

Overall: We were able to design the system, clear out sequence logic issues and identify proper boundary conditions, buffer sizes, and speeds before going live.
