New Sim City
A new version of SimCity is coming out tomorrow to considerable enthusiasm. SimCity opened the eyes of a number of executives to the use of simulation when it first came out in 1989. I had several contact me asking if we simulate the entire enterprise using the same methods. The enthusiasm had to be calmed down some, but the simulation form of analytics was never the same again. A version of the system that simulated a health care system was ultimately used internally. Look forward to looking at the new version.
