Velflow Sim for Design and Analysis of Mixed Model Production by Simulation

A free demo copy of Velflow Sim is available at

It can be run to simulate the production described in the YouTube video. Even the free demo copy will be useful to convey some important concepts in training programs on Lean as shown in the video.

Steven Bonacorsi’s insight:

Velflow Sim is a simple, handy software tool which provides predictive capability for mixed model production in which different products are sequentially run (one after another) on production lines with the possibility of setup times depending on product sequence. Mixed model production lines can be found in many plants and manufacturing cells. Velflow Sim quantifies the impact on WIP and order lead times of factors like setup time, cycle time, material movement time, inventory, batch size, resource capacity, etc.

As illustrated in our YouTube video,, Velflow Sim supports fast, extensive and reliable what-if analysis with the help of its capability to predict workflow. What-if analysis in turn helps identify improvement opportunities which can bring very high marginal gains in KPIs. Velflow Sim can make the improvement drive more effective in mixed mode production.
