Planning for tomorrow

There is not just one valid forecast. On the contrary, decision making should not rely on one single prediction, but instead manage risks and opportunities supported by scenario planning. Utilizing our way of modelling with dynamic simulation, we have developed a generic approach to mastering complexity in many different areas.

Take a look at the value our skilled experts have engineered, and get up to speed by benefiting from our years of experience working with international clients.

Traditional budgeting processes are no longer sufficient to cover the volatility and uncertainty of today’s markets. Dynamic business planning allows you to simulate the effects of external drivers on your performance.

business planning

Explore the dynamics of your workforce, and identify the key challenges of today and tomorrow. Modify your assumptions of the key drivers, of your stock of employees, and most importantly, the demand.

Dynaplan Smia represents a new modelling paradigm. It combines features of spreadsheets, presentation software, and simulation into an integrated modelling environment.

Smia is easy to use, but it is also a powerful tool, including object-oriented features, dynamic simulation, risk and uncertainty (Monte Carlo) analysis, optimisation, and sensitivity analysis.

The system automates the task of maintaining the links between visualisations, data, and equations. Smia ensures consistency while reducing the amount of manual work involved in building, maintaining, and validating models.

From the modeling point of view Smia has two outstanding features: The strong support of large models through submodels, components, and correct unit treatment and the ability to load data as well as metadata directly from SAP Business Warehouse. Even for comprehensive models the training period for new maintainers is astonishing short.

We used to often ask ourselves: “Can we afford these jobs?” Today this is not sufficient anymore. We must rather ask ourselves: “Which and how many employees do we need to reach our ambitious business objectives and gain sustainable competitive advantages?” Specifically at this point the dynamic approaches of Dynaplan create added value.
