Simulation is a tool to evaluate the performance of a model, under different configurations and over long periods of real time, to reduce the chances of failure to meet specifications, to eliminate unforeseen bottlenecks, to prevent under or over-utilization of resources (including people and money), and to optimize system performance. 1
Simulation requires a clear objective to get maximum value for effort. This objective strongly influences the level of detail in the required data.
Bizagi Simulation follows BPSim (Business Process Simulation) standard that allows enhancement of business process models captured in BPMN to support rigorous methods of analysis.
