The Kinetic Management Company
Simulation Modelling & Scheduling Technologies
Things we can do for you
We provide professional simulation modelling services to our clients using Arena® software. We are experienced modellers helping our clients solve business and analytical problems with a robust model design, build and analysis methodology.
Professional Spreadsheet Development
We are experts in spreadsheet automation, taking the drudgery out of many day to day tasks and freeing up staff resource. Data extract, manipulation and reporting is all achieved via push button and menu driven functionality, with process times measured in seconds, not hours.
We also develop and install finite capacity scheduling packages and are resellers for Preactor.
We stand by the quality of our installations and models. All have been developed using a robust and tested methodology future proofing our clients into the future.

What our customers say
We used Kinetic Management’s simulation modelling to assess different packing line weight control strategies to determine the rules that gave best yield while still meeting legal requirements and customer expectations.The software proved to be enormously flexible and adaptable to various environments. Some of the most useful features include the animated modelling scenarios, which make it simple to ‘see’ your process in action and to present your findings in a digestible format. The model can continue to be used over time to run or change settings, giving the product a long shelf-life and real use long after its original creation.I’d recommend the system as a vital tool to anyone interested in best practices and preventive action, as well as management with a focus on strategic thinking and planning. Mike Meijer | Project Manager
The Arena Software model of our despatch operation allowed us to assess in less than an hour, the likely outcomes of decisions which in real life would have taken a number of days to trial.With a large number of possible mixes and up to 250 trucks loaded per day, our plant and process is complex to model. Despite this, Kinetic Management was able to come to grips with the business and our key issues, producing for us a robust model which was accurate and efficient.
