ISyE Home for New Simulation Software

Primary tabs

Simio, a developer of 3D object-oriented simulation software, has awarded a $306,900 grant to Christos Alexopoulos and David Goldsman, professors at Georgia Tech’s H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE). The grant gives Georgia Tech academic edition licenses to support teaching and research in simulation.  ISyE will be the primary home for the research license and will use the Simio grant to remain at the forefront of research and education at all levels. “We are pleased to be the recipient of such cutting-edge software,” states Chip White, H. Milton and Carolyn J. Stewart chair of ISyE, “and we will certainly put it to good use in a variety of classes and research activities involving simulation and stochastic processes.”Simio Academic Edition is fully capable software with no model size limits and includes discrete and continuous modeling, object library development, and 3D animation. “The faculty at Georgia Tech is committed to providing the best environment for their students to learn simulation,” said Dr. Dennis Pegden, Founder and CEO of Simio. “We are honored to provide them with the best software available to teach their students.” Users of the software will be able to model systems using intelligent objects and the software’s direct connection to Google’s 3D Warehouse – two features unique to Simio.The intelligent objects are built by modelers and then may be reused in multiple modeling projects. These objects can be stored in libraries and easily shared. Simio’s connection to Google’s 3D Warehouse gives access to a free online library of thousands of graphic objects  – providing students with the ability to solve real-world problems in visually-rich environments.With this grant, Georgia Tech joins over a 100 universities across the globe to join Simio’s academic program, which offers Simio’s 3D modeling software to schools at no charge.Simio LLC, a private company headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania,  is dedicated to delivering leading edge solutions for the design, emulation, and scheduling of complex systems.
