Simio LLC is pleased to announce that the North Carolina State University Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt program now includes classes using its new Simio simulation software.

“The class is designed for those who want to learn process simulation for making decisions or conducting process improvement projects, without being burdened with low level programming,” says Jeffrey A. Joines, Associate Professor in the Textile Engineering, Chemistry, and Science Department at NC State University.

Dr. Joines continues, “The idea is that Simio software is easy for nonexperienced simulation users to use to build process simulation models that aid in process improvement projects.”

Classes will be of interest to operations managers in industries such as health care, defense, national security, mining, shipping, airports, supply chain and manufacturing. Simulation software is used to help minimize the risk of capital investments and clarify lean operation initiatives.

This class is part of the North Carolina State University Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt program. Attendees are not required to be part of the Six Sigma program, nor will it impact students' ability in the class. Prerequisites are general familiarity with computer programs like Excel and basic understanding of statistics. The course is designed in three parts.

1. Part I will be an introduction to simulation, statistics and distributions.
2. Part II will be introduction to process simulation with SIMIO
3. Part III will cover advanced simulation topics with SIMIO.

Classes take place at NC State University on the beautiful Centennial Campus in Raleigh, North Carolina.

NC State University, voted one the top five universities for its value, offers continuing education credits (CES) for attendance. Instruction is provided by Steve Roberts (Professor of Industrial and Systems Engineering) and Jeff Joines (Associate Professor of Textile Engineering). According to Dr. Roberts, “We have world class facilities and instructors with years of experience in building simulation models for various industries.”

Jeffrey A. Joines is an Associate Professor in the Textile Engineering, Chemistry and Science Department at NC State University and currently serves as the Associate Department head. He received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and B.S. in Industrial Engineering in 1990, a M.S in Industrial Engineering in 1990 and Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering in 1996, all from NC State University.
