We hope that you, your family, and your colleagues are well, and that the COVID-19 pandemic is not making life and business too difficult for you.

After the initial fire-fighting, many companies have adjusted their operative processes to the new situation. Looking ahead, companies are already preparing to ramp up their operations again. However, it is still highly uncertain how the pandemic will develop and what its consequences will be.

Selecting just one single scenario as the basis of planning is quite hazardous in this situation. Instead, a spectrum of possible developments should be identified and analysed. To do so, scenario-based simulation has proven very valuable.

At Dynaplan we are currently running with full capacity to help not just our clients but also critical health-care institutions to use our scenario-planning solution to ensure that people in need receive the best possible care.

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.

Planning outside the bandwidth

In times of great uncertainty and big changes, it is widely accepted that planning needs to be based on future scenarios rather than trends and predictions. Forget about machine learning. Forget about artificial intelligence. Forget about data mining. They all fail because they rely on data which won’t be available until long after we must decide how to deal with the situation. How do we create scenarios that can help us come safely through the different paths this virus might take us through?
