Adept helps visually model and improve workflow processes
News Release from:
Adept Scientific plc
Adept Scientific has announced the launch of Alion Science and Technology's (McLean, VA) Micro Saint Sharp (MSS) version 3.0. MSS 3.0 allows users to visually model and improve workflow processes with extreme detail and accuracy. This major upgrade to the interactive workflow simulation and optimisation software includes new features which help users improve efficiency and effectiveness.
Using an intuitive graphical user interface and flow chart approach to modelling, MSS 3.0 offers enhanced power and flexibility to help answer “what if?” questions and data analysis. New features allow you to:
• Automatically represent your resource- and capacity-limited processes
• View, edit and print data using a Process Diagram, Tree View or the new Grid View
• Debug models during execution with the new Immediates Window
• Export runtime-only simulations, to let you freely distribute models without compromising integrity.
Sue Archer, Alion Senior Vice President and Manager of the Operational Solutions Group, said that thousands of current users are modelling processes that include hospital emergency room traffic, manufacturing floor operations and military manpower planning.
“Any process that can be represented by a flow chart can easily be modelled using Micro Saint Sharp,” Archer said. “This upgraded version should prove to be even more valuable for users involved in military planning and operations, human factors, health care, manufacturing and the service industry,” Archer added.
Users can view their models as network diagrams or 2D or 3D animations. Alion’s exclusive Animator 3D software, which enables users to create a virtual environment with three-dimensional moving images, is included with the Gold version of MSS 3.0.
Also included in the Gold version is OptQuest, a tool that automatically optimises processes. MSS 3.0 comes with a large clip art library and numerous 3D objects, allowing users to quickly build realistic, detailed scenes and to easily create reusable models of their own. With MSS 3.0 Microsoft® Visio® drawings can be imported and exported.
