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 3.7 - now import task data from Microsoft Project!  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.
