Do you need to add simulation to your curriculum?
Teaching simulation to your students will give them a head start when they reach industry. Learn some of the benefits of including simulation as you teach techniques for process improvement.
For more details on any of these topics you can read Justifying Simulation to understand the benefits of simulation.
ProModel Corporation has provided simulation software to academic institutions throughout the US, Canada and the world for over 30 years. We are committed to help faculty members and students learn the importance and techniques necessary to improve organizational productivity using ProModel simulation software products: ProModel, MedModel and Process Simulator.
Note: Information on this page applies to academic software for use in the US and Canada. Professors at institutions in other regions should contact their local ProModel distributor for details about configurations, prices and technical support. Distributor contact details are located on the International page .
Note: You can run ProModel on a Mac computer, BUT, you are required to have a Windows emulator like Parallels. ProModel software was designed and tested only on Windows PCs. We support Windows 10 and up.
Software Only: $35.00 Buy
Available for both ProModel and MedModel, the student package is a limited version of the software, yet it still has many advanced features that allow for building very detailed and complex models. The student package is specifically set up to instruct and train students for professional opportunities and used for trial purposes.
Provides limited capabilities for student usage:
Process Simulator is not available in a student version. Please use the lab package for students.
ProModel is excited to announce the fourth edition of Simulation Using ProModel. Co-written by our founder Charles Harrell and senior vice president Bruce Gladwin with other industry experts, Simulation Using ProModel is published by Cognella Academic Publishing. To learn more about the fourth edition, view a digital preview, and purchase copies, please visit the Cognella website.
Simulation Using ProModel helps students build competence and confidence in the use of simulation through hands-on application. The text features a blend of theory and practice, real-life examples, case studies, and lab exercises using ProModel to help students develop their knowledge and abilities.
Part I consists of 14 study chapters. The first four chapters introduce simulation, its application to system design and improvement, and how simulation works. Chapters 5 through 11 cover the practical and theoretical aspects of conducting a simulation project, including applying simulation optimization. Chapters 12 through 14 cover applications of simulation to manufacturing, material handling, and service systems.
Part II features 14 labs that correlate with the 14 chapters in Part I. Each lab guides students through the steps of modeling a situation using ProModel and then provides exercises to further develop their skills.
Biman Ghosh is a professor of industrial and manufacturing engineering at the California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.
Royce Bowden served at Mississippi State University and Wichita State University as a College of Engineering dean, associate dean, department head, and professor. He specializes in simulation
output analysis and co-developed the first widely used simulation optimization software.
Bruce Gladwin is a senior vice president at ProModel Corporation. With more than 30 years of experience in the simulation field, Bruce has worked with major corporations worldwide, developing hundreds of models across a wide range of industries.
Charles Harrell is retired from teaching in the Engineering and Technology School at Brigham Young University. He is the founder of ProModel Corporation, where he still maintains a role on the board of directors.
Publication Announcement: The preliminary version of the fourth edition of Simulation Using ProModel by Biman Ghosh, Royce Bowden, Bruce Gladwin, and Charles Harrell will be published by Cognella Academic Publishing is now available for course use in Fall 2021. The final version will be available in January 2022.

Lean Transformation Webinar
Watch this video that shows an example of using one of our products in a teaching setting. It includes a description of how simulation basics were included in a course for a university operations management course using Process Simulator, a plug in to Microsoft Visio. This professor wanted to introduce the topic but they didn’t have an option for a full course. Perhaps you could include it as an introductory topic in one of your classes?
