The company Simcon (founded in 1997) provides consulting services and develops simulation and optimization tools for the rationalization of transport and logistic processes.
Simcon employs top specialists with long-term experience in transport, computer simulation, information systems development, operation research, logistics, and computer graphics. The key workers of Simcon are tightly connected to the University of Žilina, this allows Simcon to integrate its practical experience with theoretical research done on European and world scientific professional level.
During the decade of its history it has realized many projects focused on simulation of transportation processes within logistic terminals (e.g. marshalling yards, factories, railway passenger stations, etc.) utilising in-house developed simulation tool Villon.
Villon is a feature rich software tool for creation of simulation models of transportation logistic terminals utilising cutting edge technology - agent based architecture, 3D visualisation (utilising MS DirectX) to mention only a few. Villon supports complete life-cycle of the simulation study, starting with model creation (including infrastructure layout conversion from CAD files), through experiments with the model over to the results evaluations (user customizable with graphical output).
