Everything You Need in Simulation!


Built off the very successful Micro Saint engine, but completely redesigned to be faster, modular and more powerful!  Micro Saint Sharp is a general purpose, discrete-event simulation software tool. Micro Saint Sharp's intuitive graphical user interface and flow chart approach to modeling make it a tool that can be used by generalists as well as simulation experts. Micro Saint Sharp has proven to be an invaluable asset in both small businesses and Fortune 500 companies and in many areas including the military, human factors, health care, manufacturing, and the service industry.

Micro Saint Sharp's power, flexibility and tools for optimization make it the simulation tool of choice for any organization.  With a computer model of your process built in Micro Saint Sharp, you can begin to get the answers to your "what if" questions. What if I change the way humans work with the system? What if I change my resource mix? What if I rearrange the process? Find the answers with Micro Saint Sharp quickly and completely for systems of all sizes, shapes, and complexities.

Micro Saint Sharp Version 3.8 - now add vertical or horizontal swim lanes to your network diagrams and exchange data with the SysML/UML tool Magic Draw!  There are still 3 ways to view your models: network diagram view, 2D animation and 3D animation.  Download a free demonstration version or contact us at for further information about this new version.

    Various minor bug fixes.

    Updated Manuals and Help Screens. The Help is now formatted as Responsive HTML help the interface changes based on the size of your browser window.

    Other useful recent enhancements include:

    • Import your existing Microsoft Visio business and technical drawings and make them into process simulation models (Note: you must have Visio on your computer)
    • Create reusable modeling components with Referential tasks and paths which will reduce your overall model development time
    • Better visualize and add scenarios with the new Scenario Viewer
    • View new reports including tasks and scenario time-line reports
    • Find things quickly with the new "Go To" window
    • Turn off entity merging which greatly improves model run performance
    • Save time creating snapshots with a new automatic variable data collection option
