    Brazilian Academic Simulation Awards Given in Honor of Rob Bateman

    ProModel friends and associates, last October 12 we lost a dear friend, Rob Bateman and it is very hard to believe that a year has already passed. Coincidentally, just a few days before the loss of our colleague, on October 6, 2015, the first ever ‘Rob Bateman’ award was delivered in the city of Joao Pessoa (north east coast of Brazil). Here is the web site of the event:. The Simula Brazil is a national award for simulation systems, organized and hosted by the portal “www.simulacao.net” which is sponsored by the Belge Consulting (www.belge.com.br) and ProModel Corporation. The award has institutional support of ABEPRO (www.abepro.org.br) and SOBRAPO (www.sobrapo.org.br) and is linked to the National Production Engineering Meeting (ENEGEP).

    EPS Round Table Discussion with ProModel Founder Dr. Charles Harrell

    A recording of this discussion can be found here: EPS_Roundtable

    Charles HarrellMay 30, 2013, ProModel Corporation’s founder, Dr. Charles Harrell, conducted an informative roundtable discussion on the use of ProModel’s Enterprise Portfolio Simulator (EPS) in MBA and similarly named programs.   There were five professors from various academic organizations in attendance.  Some have used ProModel tools and others were just investigating the possibilities.

    Dr. Harrell explained that 214 business or MBA programs now offer courses with a focus on project portfolio management (PPM), which is one of the key reasons to consider adopting PPM simulation with Enterprise Portfolio Simulator (EPS) in an MBA curriculum.

    Additionally, Project Management Offices (PMO’s) are on the rise and the functions of those that already exist are drastically changing.  PMO’s are no longer administrative in function, but are focusing on strategic decision making.  Professor Harrell explained this is why EPS is a critical ingredient as we educate future business leaders.

    ProModel currently has available a short introductory video and student exercise using EPS.  Instructors can sign-up NOW to use this program to introduce simulation and strategic decision making to their students.  Materials are already in place and a sandbox is available in which students can use a real cloud-based simulation tool to test scenarios and make real world-like decisions.

    One professor at the roundtable shared his experiences using EPS in a classroom environment. The information he provided and recommendations he made were very pertinent and will be implemented into the EPS exercises. A second professor in attendance shared his experiences using ProModel academic materials to teach his operations research students.  In his class, students investigate how to predict how long a Boeing 787-9 project will take and what kinds of resources are required. In a recent semester students were able to see how the possibility of a strike would affect project outcomes by using ProModel simulation.  These predictions were difficult to make with other modeling tools which can only look at one project at a time and not an entire portfolio. He was particularly glad to hear that EPS doesn’t require students to do any model building.

    In addition to EPS, ProModel is also currently developing a process analysis educational module that has already been piloted in one of American’s top Ivy League Universities in their MBA program. More information on this program will become available. 

    ProModel will continue to make improvements to its current PPM MBA materials and make available new materials. Remember most PPM products do not take into consideration resource constraints and task time variability in the same way EPS does.  We invite you to try out EPS in courses where PPM is taught to help students gain the skills and insights they will need as business leaders to make the correct strategic decisions about resource capacity, project selection and return on investment for enterprise project portfolios.  Contact us today!

    Mina Georges of Michigan

    Mina hales from the University of Michigan where he recently completed his B.S.E., Industrial and Operations Engineering.

    Zachary Henson of Orange, California

    I attended Chapman University in Orange, California and initially majored in International Business. God only knows how I ended up with an internship working with an amazing international theme park company in Orange, California. Through school and my internship I became very excited in the prospects of ProModel in the theme attractions environment. ProModel allowed accurate simulations that no other program could come close to paralleling. I now work as a Project Director. I am so excited to continue to push ProModel at the educational level into industries that have yet to fully realize its potential.
