Simulation Software Comparison: Discrete Event Simulation Competitors

Simulation software comparison


The comparison of discrete event simulation software alternatives is based on ORMS Today Simulation Software Survey published in October, 2015.

“ORMS Today” journal, published by a global institute of operational management and analytics “INFORMS”, completed a detailed comparison of popular competitor tools for discrete event modelling. In 2015 it was supported by 31 developers with 55 tools. Data used in the research was kindly presented by the developers themselves. The document contains competing software features, such as 3D animation support, import of CAD charts, export of ready-to-use models, and more.

The comparison will be valuable for anybody searching for simulation software alternatives or evaluating competitors. 

We’ve chosen the most popular tools compared by the major parameters and presented them in a practical way. Enjoy reading!

The original comparison by ORMS Today can be found on the journal website.
