Benefits of *ORMS*ware (ormsware)
modeling approach |
- Lucid, visual quantitative models that inspire, involve and
connect all stakeholders of a problem, shortening cycle time
from problem definition to solution implementation through
advantages in technical, psychological and social domains
- Monte Carlo Simulation for uncertainty analysis
- Parameter-driven probabilistic discrete event simulation
(simulator) for dynamic analysis of resource-dependent systems
and processes (see dialog boxes at left)
- Totally flexible modeling perspectives for
making problems easier to solve (e.g. are planes waiting for
parts or parts waiting for planes? Do we want to model it as a
queuing problem or an inventory problem?)
- All problems (whether Discrete Event, Agent Based or System
Dynamics type) are modeled as generalized, hierarchical, queuing
network-structured performance systems, providing total
flexibility and ease of formulation
- Multiple resources can be attached to and released from any
probe/surrogate/entity in a discrete event simulation
- Optimization and goal-seeking supervisory functions
- Powerful array operations
- Aids in transforming complex spreadsheets into visual quantitative
network models that are easy to understand, modify and maintain
- Allows hybrid models, retaining in spreadsheets easy parts while
moving complex parts to
*ORMS*ware
- Automatic variable time dimension to easily express problem dynamics
ORMSware is a ** rapid visual quantitative modeling**
system built by Reginald Joules at Ushar Enterprises Inc.
Reginald is a US Army veteran with 20 years of experience in
Defense sector, keenly interested in helping solve national
defense problems.
ORMSware enables engineers and analysts to
focus on quickly developing quantitative models that are too large and/or
complex for spreadsheets, while avoiding the undesirable
distractions of heavy admin burdens of programming.
ORMSware has also turned out to be an ideal
tool for ** systematic, fast, risk-less transformation of
legacy spreadsheets into visual quantitative networks**.
Many organizations have spreadsheets that
have evolved over time into constraining spaghetti structures in
black boxes that
are too risky to modify and hard to maintain.
Perhaps the most fundamental drawback of spreadsheets is the
difficulty in using one of the three basic constructs in
programming, viz. iteration. While it is possible to override
default circular logic protections or use Visual Basic for
Applications (VBA) to implement iterations/recursions/do-loops
they are clumsy ways to implement inevitable recursion needs in
virtually any quantitative decision model.
**Networks Everywhere One Looks** |
The general *ORMS*ware paradigm is
anchored in the undeniable fact that ** *** logical* networks
are pervasive structures which can be used to visually express quantitative
solutions in any discipline, in any application arena.
*ORMS*ware
network objects in combination with easy
*ORMS*ware notations make it possible to model virtually any
quantitative problem in any setting.
ORMSware's engine is not confined to running
on PC platform. **ORMSware models are portable to any platform,
from workstations to supercomputers**.
- Organizations in both government and commercial sectors
who are continually engaged in developing and maintaining
complex and large-scale scientific and engineering models
and advanced quantitative business models
- Organizations eager to migrate complex production
spreadsheets partially or totally to an environment where
content logic is easy to see and understand
- Organizations seeking rapid-response off-the-cuff
disposable automation similar to spreadsheets, with the
power and advantage of more easily verifiable visual logic
