Simulating Constraints: A Framework for Process Optimization

Simulating process models is a powerful technique for understanding and optimizing work processes. And like most powerful techniques, it’s important to have a framework for applying it, to help use it in a way that’s beneficial and aligned with management objectives. What follows is a suggested approach for using simulations to generate insights about your […]

Business Process Modeling in HASH

Today we’re launching our first plugin for HASH, which provides a graphical user interface for the easy modeling and simulation of business processes and operations. Drag ‘n’ drop build processes, and easily simulate them in practice.

Vaccine Distribution Scenario Modeling

Optimizing vaccine allocation is a critical task – improving the distribution of vaccines could save tens of thousands of lives over the coming months. In partnership with researchers at the Virginia Modeling, Analysis, and Simulation Center, we created a simulation of the vaccine distribution process.

Simulating Short Squeezes

We wanted to demonstrate the dynamics of the Battle of GameStop™ so we put together a simulation of the sharp escalation of price that can occur when an irresistible force (legally needing to cover your shorts) meets an immovable object (the combined will of thousands of Redditors).

Modeling Vaccine Distribution

At least three working COVID-19 vaccines have now been approved by global regulators for widespread public use. With constraints on manufacturing and logistics, who should be inoculated first, and how will the vaccines be distributed?

Berkeley Delivery Simulation

Students at the University of California, Berkeley, built a traffic simulation of delivery-cars in HASH to predict the efficiency of delivery services and their impact on street congestion.

Functional Agent-Based Modeling

Whilst most agent-based modeling software takes a strongly object-oriented approach to simulation, HASH eschews that for a more composable, functional approach. In this post we explain what that means.

Why not simulate?

If simulation is so great, why is my organization not already using it? This article explores some of the most common historical hang-ups and misconceptions around simulation modeling today.

Uniswap Simulation

Simulation can help us explore complex systems and discover unexpected outcomes. In this piece we create a digital model of the Uniswap protocol.

Voting with HASH

No election is without complication, but the 2020 US presidential election faces the extra added challenge of taking place in the midst of a global pandemic. Keeping people safe while ensuring they can still easily vote has led to states implementing both accommodations and restrictions on their election practices. Some of these have made voting […]
