Mission Possible: Solving Complex Problems with Process Flow
Bill Nordgren, Founder, President, and CEO of FlexSim Software Products, Inc.

Date: Monday, May 23
Time: 11 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.
Room: Disneyland North Exhibit Hall F - Fantasy Tower

In this engaging and interactive presentation, FlexSim CEO Bill Nordgren tackles some of most challenging and complex systems to model accurately. His tool of choice is Process Flow, a powerful new logic building feature found in the latest version of FlexSim’s simulation modeling software (FlexSim 2016). It pairs familiar flowcharting methods with state-of-the-art 3D visuals to quickly model any system without using computer code. We’re relying on the audience to guide the presentation through job shops, picking operations, logistical systems, and much more. Come by and discover a better way to optimize and improve your operations!

Speaker: Bill Nordgren is the Founder, President, and CEO of FlexSim Software Products, Inc. He has spent 27 years in and around the simulation modeling industry, co-founded and served as Vice President of ProModel Corporation, and introduced four different simulation engines (FlexSim, Taylor ED, Taylor II, and ProModel) to the software market. Bill holds a BS in Manufacturing Engineering Technology and an MS in Computer Integrated Manufacturing from Brigham Young University.
