ABACUS® Simulator provides a sophisticated solution for advanced users skilled in the art of what-if, scenario and trade-off analysis. As an add-on module to ABACUS® Architect, ABACUS Simulator provides a host of in-built evaluators - not just Performance - to provide a revolutionary whole of business (Process, People and Technology) metrics-based, change management solution.
ABACUS’ simulations have been refined to be scientifically and commercially rigorous, and are not just token-based performance simulation as with most of the other modeling tools on the market.
Out-of-the-box ABACUS offers pioneering (and patent-pending) simulations for derived attributes from the Financial (e.g. Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), ROI, NPV) to the Technical (e.g. Resource Utilization, Response Times, Availabilities) to the Environmental (e.g. Carbon Footprint, Resource Re-use, Sustainability, Heat & Power Consumption) using equational, structural, discrete-event and Monte-Carlo techniques allowing for portfolio and lifecycle management of architectures using asset timelines, lifecycles and roadmaps. For more customized calculations, ABACUS’ in-built scripting engine can also be used.
