Simulation Software for Automotive Manufacturing

The simulation software of choice for making risk free decisions rapidly, accurately and efficiently.

At SIMUL8 we understand Automotive. Our founder developed the first version of SIMUL8 following years of working in automotive, because he, like the best manufacturing engineers recognized what is important in a simulation tool. We still live by these principles as we continue to develop the product today.

Our belief is that when using simulation software, the purpose is not building a simulation, it's to make risk free decisions rapidly, accurately and efficiently.

70% of the world's top OEMs use SIMUL8 for their process improvement.

"We wanted to look at the impact of slowing down the best performing lines as people on these lines were always waiting for work from slower lines in the process and that's just waste ."
