Product News: Predictive-simulation technology for faster scalable growth

Aug. 25, 2021
The tool allows ‘what if’ scenarios to be fully tested before committing time, resources and money.

Lanner has launched the latest version of its flagship software. WITNESS Horizon 24.0 is the most up-to-date incarnation of Lanner’s WITNESS predictive-simulation software, which enables businesses to create dynamic, predictive digital twins of existing or planned business operations, allowing ‘what if’ scenarios to be fully tested before committing time, resources and money.

Now available to download, WITNESS Horizon 24.0 comes with a host of features, focusing on ease and speed of use, according to its maker, which notes the release seamlessly combines desktop modeling and scalable cloud execution, enabling modelers to work faster and smarter than ever before. Key features include:

  • IntelliSense and Inherit Scenario functionality to make it quicker to recall system elements within models and to simplify experimentation
  • Upgrades to support scalable deployment of multiple experimentation scenarios, enabling users to better future proof growth
  • Large batches of experiments that might previously have taken hours can now take minutes, resulting in more efficient experimentation and results generation when using the integrated subscription service.

These features enable project managers and engineers to rapidly develop feature-rich models and simulation apps that provide unparalleled insight through data visualization and freedom to test choices in a risk-free virtual environment, per Lanner.

“WITNESS Horizon 24.0has been designed to support the deployment of multiple experimentation scenarios, with enhanced features and a new fully integrated connectivity to our cloud execution service,” said Sander Zweers, commercial officer at Lanner. “This connectivity lets users run models faster than ever before across multiple cores on the cloud, before analyzing the generated data. The new features have been designed to empower modelers and analysts as they execute simulation models as part of their organization’s digital twin strategy.”
