UCLA Chooses ProcessModel Process Simulation Software for MBA Program

UCLA Anderson MBA program selected ProcessModel process simulation software to replace existing simulation products. The main criteria were the power of ProcessModel’s analysis capability coupled with a short learning curve. Students can become capable of using the software quickly with a only a self-guided tutorial.

    Scott, our university is looking at simulation options for a business process improvement course. Do you know what the selection criteria was?

      Peggy, from what I understand, there were four main criteria. First, the software had to be easy to learn and easy to use. Second, it had to solve a wide variety of problems that the MBA program would encounter. Third, It had to be available on campus and to students at a reasonable rate. And fourth, the students needed to be able to take ProcessModel forward to their company. We are happy to be selected to work with UCLA.
