MODSIM World is dedicated to promoting cooperation among academia, industry and government for applying modeling and simulation technologies to help organizations anticipate and prepare for the future. Governor Terry McAuliffe of the state of Virginia gave the keynote address to open the conference which was held in Virginia Beach. He spoke about his plans for developing business and economic opportunities in Virginia, and the role that modeling and simulation plays in exploring possibilities and making those plans a reality.
Michael Hugos made the presentation for SCM Globe at the second annual entrepreneurship competition at MODSIM World (http://modsimworld.org/). We were selected from a field of contestants by conference attendees and judges as the winner.
Contestants were judged on considerations ranging from “the cool factor” to ease of use, affordability, and potential for making a significant impact and positive contribution to how work and training is done in a given profession or industry.
At the end of each presentation the panel of judges from industry asked tough questions about market size, product appeal and sales growth. And attendees also used an app to rate the presentation and the product the company was bringing to market.
SCM Globe was judged to have the cool factor, and to meet the qualifications for using simulations to make a significant contribution to the way work is done in transportation and logistics and the way professionals in that area are trained.
The award is to recognize a startup company that is applying modeling and simulation in innovative ways to solve pressing problems or deliver improved training in areas such as medical services, transportation and logistics, homeland security and business operations.
Steve Koji and Michael Hugos accepted the award at the end of the conference and received a cash prize as a token of MODSIM World’s support for our efforts.
