Abstract

In 2005, Tekes launched MASI, a five-year programme on modelling and simulation to develop the knowledge, methods and use of modelling and simulation in the Finnish industry and service sector. There are still relatively few simulation service providers on the market, and the benefits of applying modelling and simulation from the business point of view are not yet known. Due to this dilemma, we would like to start by discussing the role of simulation in the competitiveness of Finnish industry. What is the value of modelling and simulation competence? Are we on the right track if simulation methods developed in academia never enter the market or if simulation companies can only survive with public support? This report summarises the results of the SISU project, which was part of the MASI programme. The main goals of the project were to develop simulation methods suitable for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs); to make an implementation plan that can be adapted for industry, and to identify opportunities and create the prerequisites for simulation-based industry. This report mainly emphasises the Q9 operations model, which was developed for the effective execution of simulation projects. Business opportunities for simulation are preliminarily discussed and eleven case studies done within the project are briefly summarised.
