About Micro Saint® Sharp
Built off the industry-leading Micro Saint engine, but completely redesigned to be faster, modular and more powerful!
Micro Saint Sharp is a general purpose, discrete-event simulation software tool. Micro Saint Sharp's intuitive graphical user interface and flow chart approach to modeling make it a tool that can be used by generalists as well as simulation experts. Micro Saint Sharp has proven to be an invaluable asset in both small businesses and Fortune 500 organizations that span the U.S. military, health care, manufacturing, and the service industry.
Micro Saint Sharp simplifies the development of simulations that can help you optimize your processes and workflows as well as human factors and ergonomics. Extensive functionality and a user-friendly interface make Micro Saint Sharp easy to learn and operate.
For Systems of Any Size or Complexity
With Micro Saint Sharp, there’s no limit on the size or complexity of the models you create. From simple models to the highly complex, you and Micro Saint Sharp can handle it all successfully. All unique aspects of the system you are modeling can be represented in Micro Saint Sharp using a series of modeling components and the Microsoft C# programming language.
MicroSaint Sharp gives you:
Micro Saint Sharp provides solutions ranging from simple queuing problems involving hospital waiting rooms to complex human decision processes involving command and control systems.
In addition, you can easily customize Micro Saint Sharp to create interfaces that act as a front-end to the model. With these interfaces, you simply enter data and obtain results from the simulation model.
What’s more, Micro Saint Sharp features a customizable development environment. Choose the default setting or move the palettes and tools around to create a workspace that’s most efficient for you.
Response time is critical, so we developed Micro Saint Sharp with the goal of increasing model execution speed. You can now run a model with all of the interfaces turned off. Consequently, your execution speed increases by a factor of 10. When you need results as quickly as possible, Micro Saint Sharp is ready to perform.
Data may give you the answer to the question, but it doesn’t always tell the whole story. With Micro Saint Sharp, there are three ways to view and demonstrate your models that tell the story behind the data.
Use the network diagram view to animate the process flow chart. Or, choose either of the animation views, Animator (2D) or Animator3D, to show a realistic picture of your process with moving images. Animator also provides the capability for charts, graphs and text to be displayed on one screen while the model is executing.
Seamlessly sharing data is critical to the future of simulation. What if you want to integrate a mix of computer simulations, actual warfighting systems, and weapon system simulators? What if you want the entities to be distributed geographically and connected through a high-speed network?
Recognizing this emerging need, intermodel communication services were added to Micro Saint Sharp. Now, you can dynamically exchange data with software applications such as Microsoft Excel®, Visio® and other commercial products, as well as your own custom tools.
The Right Answers
To make the job of finding the optimal solution faster and easier, Micro Saint Sharp has a built-in optimization system. You define the goal of your system, the limits on what you can do to achieve that goal, and how long you want to spend looking for it.
OptQuest®, the optimization tool built into Micro Saint Sharp, hunts for the best alternative. OptQuest searches using state-of-the-art intelligent search algorithms and finds solutions quickly and efficiently.
Micro Saint Sharp automatically collects data that you need to understand your process, including utilization, queues, resources, and tasks. So once you execute the model, you start getting answers quickly. Plus, you can customize data collection to see results for any data you want.
