SIMIO: simulate and define the best business decisions

Millions of business decisions are made every day. Better investments and growth projects can create new horizons for business productivity and profitability.


SIMIO  Simulation And Scheduling – of which Paragon is the exclusive representative in Latin America  – is the most advanced and innovative software in the world for chain simulation and process scheduling to support strategic decision making.

With it, you can develop digital twins, virtual environments created based on all constraints, processes and assumptions to faithfully mirror possible real-life scenarios.

This allows a company to analyze every aspect of operation and productivity, make adjustments, tests and validate the ideal operation environment for the achievement of the company´s goals without prior capital, technology and people investment.

With it, it is possible:

The 3D smart objects of SIMIOSimulation Modeling Based On Intelligent Objects – faithfully represent the logic and functioning of your working environment, from an operator to a fleet of trucks to a manufacturing cell.

It has a large amount of 3D objects cataloged in Google Warehouse and allows the creation of new ones.

With this, the model obtains the greatest possible fidelity to the reality of the company’s business and the system being studied.

SIMIO allows the company to simulate all possible scenarios within a system, analyze the risks and benefits of each one and decide on a model that best meets the objectives.

Spend your time solving problems and not programming

Successful segments with SIMIO

Another feature, inherent to the philosophy in creating the software, is the versatility to use it with great results in projects of the most diverse segments.

The base of operation of SIMIO does not relate to unique objects and processes; it allows a company in the Food industry looking for logistics expansion to use the software with the same efficiency as a Steel company in the search for optimizing industrial processes.

See some of the sectors in which Paragon and SIMIO operate successfully.

As we can see, there is a great diversity of contexts and dynamics, from traditional plants, such as mining companies to where human capital is the main resource, such as call centers and operations based mainly on processes, such as logistics.

This demonstrates the flexibility that SIMIO provides to work with completely different variables, environments, processes and performance targets, delivering effective results as the most suitable scenario for your company’s operations.

What are the advantages of SIMIO

In addition to the safety and efficiency in building virtual scenarios to support your investment decision, SIMIO also delivers a key feature for companies today: the functionality.

The software is the only one available on the market that bases the construction of scenarios on the object-oriented interface.

What is object-oriented programming?

It is an alternative to structured programming, which is used in developing the vast majority of applications. 

Object orientation brings together the structures of a program and the handling of objects in the real world, allowing:

With its characteristics, SIMIO works with the most important functionalities for the digital scenario simulation market and for the support of major strategic decisions.
