PragmaDev Process includes a powerful simulator that aims at optimizing business processes and helping stakeholders to trade off between different options.
Statistical time and cost information is added to the BPMN model following the BPSim de facto standard. The process simulator runs the different scenarios automatically and produces an evaluation of the time and cost for each process or part of a process. Our simulator is based on our executor and for that reason it is the only one on the market that follows the semantic of BPMN.

Developed with real industrial use cases the simulator is fully operational and optimized.
Based on BPSim organisation, a scenario contains the following information:
Time and cost information for each BPMN symbol,
Probability of execution for branches in a gateway,
Number of runs and units,
The user defines the inputs in one file and the simulator will generate the output in a separate file for each simulation.
Time and cost
In the active scenario, the time and cost information is defined for each BPMN symbol in the model. BPSim defines a wide range of possibilities from a fixed value to several distributions for time, as well as fixed and variable information for cost.
The expected output of the simulation must be defined.
Select the scenarios to start the simulation.
Simulation results are available for each symbol that have been targeted in the scenario. In the case of several scenarios all simulation results are presented on the same graph. The best scenario appears clearly.
Each replication during the simulation is logged with all the basic information for a broad analysis.
Each log can be replayed on the model for analysis.
All results can be exported for documentation or further processing.
