Opus Suite Version 2018

The latest release of Opus Suite included several enhancements and innovative new capabilities. Continuous development with annual releases is central to Systecon’s commitment to provide Opus Suite users with state-of-the-art optimization and decision support capabilities, versatile scenario modelling and an intuitive user interface. The following are some of the key highlights in the new version, which was released in April 2018.

Enhancements at a Glance

  • A new solution finder in OPUS10 allows for multiple effectiveness requirements that can be defined per location, unit and system type. Spares assortments are optimized to satisfy these requirements at lowest possible cost.
  • New simulation results in SIMLOX makes it possible to predict and analyze in detail the reasons and contributors behind system downtime.
  • Item Preventive Maintenance in SIMLOX has been extended to account for time in stock, and model aspects like scheduled inspections, maintenance and ageing while in stock.
  • Improved color control in the CATLOC user interface makes cost analysis more intuitive.
  • Assumptions regarding utilization in OPUS10 can be adjusted, which is relevant when considering solutions with relatively low availability.
