What is NEW in Simcad Pro®

New releases in Simcad Pro

CreateASoft’s latest release of Simcad Pro brings the latest game-changing advancements in Dynamic Digital Twin Modeling.

With faster development of accurate Digital Twin models, full data integration, detailed analytics and built-in reporting, CreateASoft is revolutionizing simulation technology and predictive analytics for Industry 4.0 and beyond.

Widely anticipated, spatially aware Smart Entities use the detailed spatial representation of the model and automatically use Smart Pathing to move throughout the operation. Also including all-new built-in analytics and reporting, no other simulation software compares to the power of Simcad Pro.

  • Smart Entities - Smart Objects, Carriers and Resources
    • Smart Entities use the spatial representation of the model to figure out the optimum path to their destination. They do not require pre-defined paths to operate and use the model constraints (Racks, machines, barriers, walls, and other fixed entities) to identify their direction.
    • Smart Entities perform collision detection with other entities and dynamically reroute their direction of travel.
    • Smart Entities can be converted to regular entities (and back to Smart Entities) at any times in the simulation.
  • Interactive VR
    Enables full model building and modification in VR, with immediate real-time feedback using Simcad Pro's On-The-Fly technology.
  • Time Lapse Heat Maps, Spaghetti Diagrams, and Congestion Maps
    View a detailed time lapse heat map analysis of the operation. Identify key opportunities to eliminate congestion, improve slotting, and increase operational efficiency. Applies to warehousing, automation, manufacturing, material handling, AGVs, and more.
  • Auto Rack Creation
    Announcing the fastest warehouse build module available today - Import an Excel (or CSV) file of the rack definition, and Simcad Pro 14 automatically creates the racking and paths in 2D, 3D and VR. Load the data into the model and start simulating.
  • Rack Density Analysis
    Identify the most efficient racking for your storage needs. Generate the storage density report and improve slotting analysis.
  • Goods to Person support
    Additional support for Goods to Person robots, MSU analysis, and detailed automation scenarios.
  • Moving/Mobile Robots
    Robotic arms that are capable of transitioning in the operation and performing different tasks. Use the integrated scheduling and optimization engine to identify the most efficient use of your Robots.
  • Faster Execution
    Expanded multithreading support and highly adaptable path generation module.

A Patented simulation modeling environment delivers
unmatched ease of use & real time optimization.

Modify the model during the simulation run, analyze the impact of constraint changes without the need to stop/restart the simulation.
  • Add, modify, and remove constraints and definitions
  • Modify model flows, speeds and capacities
  • Add and modify processes and inter-process connections
  • Add and modify custom KPI dashboards
  • Analyze the model flow with live resouce, process, and object monitoring
