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.
In the second annual entrepreneurship competition at MODSIM World (http://modsimworld.org/), Michael Hugos made the presentation for SCM Globe. We were selected from a field of contestants by judges and conference attendees 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.
SCM Globe was judged to have the cool factor and to meet the qualifications for making 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.
