Beyond Market Mix Models


Beyond Market Mix Models

Traditional Marketing Mix models attempt to explore the tradeoffs amongst different marketing channels and the spends associated with them. The weaknesses of these models are, generally, their static nature and the restrictive assumptions required to apply their results. For these reasons, an American pharmaceutical company, one of the largest in the world, engaged with Sterling Simulation to explore the benefits of agent-based modeling, prior to launching a new product. The use-case was presented by Scott Hebert, Vice President of Sterling Simulation at the AnyLogic Conference 2015.

Modeling Intelligent Energy Systems for Cities and Regions


Modeling Intelligent Energy Systems for Cities and Regions

As the hubs of economic activity, cities drive the vast majority of the world’s energy use and are major contributors to global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Nowadays, roughly half of the world’s population is living in urban areas, and this share is increasing over time, projected to reach 60% by 2030. Cities are responsible for the largest consumption of energy resources worldwide – between 60 to 80% – and account for a roughly equal share of global CO2 emissions. The European Institute for Energy Research (EIFER) is a European economic interest group whose mission is to develop know-how and innovative solutions and products for the management of energy and related economic and environmental questions. Dr. Enrique Kremers from EIFER evaluates energy policies and their impact on reducing energy consumption to improve energy efficiency.

Senior Executive Decision Support Tool at USAA


Senior Executive Decision Support Tool at USAA

The United Services Automobile Association (USAA) is a Fortune 500 Company offering diversified financial services and insurance to people and families that serve or have served in the United States Military. With nearly 12 million members and various services, it is imperative that USAA’s business initiatives with strategic objectives of the enterprise are aligned. To accomplish this alignment, USAA combines advanced analytics, simulation methods, and enterprise architecture concepts to create dynamic and systemic models of the enterprise. A major catalyst in these efforts is Dr. Bipin Chadha, Data Scientist at USAA who has developed several decision support models for strategic planning, capability roadmaps, operational risk analysis, capacity planning and scheduling, and portfolio optimization.

Lockheed Martin - Improving Military Aircraft Turnaround Process


Lockheed Martin - Improving Military Aircraft Turnaround Process

The military aircraft maintenance turnaround process is highly complex and includes multiple interacting and parallel workflows between humans and machines. Lockheed Martin, one of the largest companies in the aerospace, defense, security, and technologies industry sought to improve decision-making in regards to the complete turnaround process and to identify process changes that could be implemented to reduce turnaround time. There are two distinct features unique to the project. One being the use of AnyLogic to model people, machines and workstations, and how they interact, which identified previously unknown workflow peculiarities. The second, a portable Android tablet application developed and tested by the team for workflow authoring and data collection that provided the input data to the process simulation model.
