Insight Acumen

Advanced Modeling and Simulation, Decision Support, System Improvement, Mentoring

Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

Insight Acumen (IA) has used ExtendSim since 2010 to build models to support decision makers and PhD students across myriad domains, industries, and research subjects. IA has built models in support of child welfare, child protection, training pipelines, coal handling plants, iron ore stockpiling, underground mining, military air traffic controller demand vs service provision, state aircraft fleet demand vs service provision, lithium processing plant availability, cheese production facilities, sugar-cane supply chain PhD research, criminal justice PhD research, and hospital emergency department PhD research.

More recently, Insight Acumen has added health service modelling experts to the consultant team. Experience includes using ExtendSim to model a new hospital design, specifically emergency department, imaging, theatre, and outpatients.

Insight Acumen has ExtendSim modelling expertise while clients and prospective clients have the domain subject matter expertise. We work closely with domain SMEs to build models that are fit-for-purpose and validated (if current-state data is available). Once validated using current state, users can have confidence in conducting discovery experiments, and in the test results for any number of possible future states. 

Throughout the year, Insight Acumen offers multiple public training courses for ExtendSim Essentials Training. Rate-Based Modeling courses are available upon request. See the ExtendSim Events list or go directly to the Insight Acumen site for details on 2022 training courses.
