The Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference Awards recognize Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered exceptional Microsoft-based solutions over the last year.

ProModel Corporation is a process optimization and decision support company that delivers predictive analytics BI solutions with innovative technology. Compared to traditional performance improvement approaches, ProModel’s solutions help decision makers Make Better Decisions Faster by integrating our predictive simulation software with industry leading tools like Visio. This dramatically reduces the learning curve, time to value and enables companies to do more with less by proving more accurate, quantifiable results.

As an example of a customer application using Process Simulator, the US Air Force Manpower Agency (AFMA) is responsible for conducting manpower resource analysis for all Air Force units and organizations.  They ensure these organizations have the proper amount and type of personnel available at the right time to complete their assigned missions. 

With the continuously changing conditions in the world, senior Air Force leadership must be able to quickly and accurately predict manpower needs accounting for Congressionally mandated manpower authorizations and ever changing mission demands. Using Visio and Process Simulator AFMA is able to quickly capture their process’s, create and simulate  “What If”  scenarios and generate a predictive visualization of key performance metrics significantly reducing the risk for manpower decision makers.

Process Simulator offers AFMA the ability to compare and contrast multiple data elements quickly and efficiently significantly enhancing current static analytical techniques.

The Process Simulator/Visio platform will now enable AFMA to quickly and accurately depict organizational structures within the Air Force and run quantifiable and repeatable “what-if” analysis in order to determine the optimal manning requirements for all units.  Once fully implemented, this new solution will enhance AFMA’s ability to provide superior customer service to U.S. Air Force senior leadership in a faster more effective manner.
