History of trust in INOSIM
CURRENTA has been using an INOSIM simulation model to analyze the capacity of waste incineration plants at its sites for some time now. Owning an INOSIM Runtime license, CURRENTA was already able to independently run simulations and analyze the results. While searching for a reliable partner for the modeling work on the existing model, CURRENTA once again chose INOSIM: The model was handed over to our experts of the INOSIM Consulting GmbH.
Establishing a reliable task distribution
In the current project, we are working closely with CURRENTA to keep their existing model up to date and to implement any desired changes. The work is clearly divided here: CURRENTA fills the model with the required data, runs the simulation, and analyzes the results. INOSIM ensures that the model is continuously adjusted and extended according to CURRENTA’s needs. So we are regularly consulted when the simulation results are evaluated.
As part of this collaboration, we first recommended our customer to update the model to the current INOSIM version 12 in order to provide the best possible simulation environment. Furthermore, the focus was on the evaluation of the simulation results according to the individual requirements of the users at CURRENTA.
Fit for the future
As a result of this approach, CURRENTA today has an up-to-date model at its disposal. The model is regularly adapted and expanded by INOSIM consultants, thus making optimal use of the strengths of both project partners. To gain the capacity to work even more efficiently with the existing model, CURRENTA has recently decided to purchase another INOSIM Runtime license.
