What do we offer?
As SIM-CI is part of Alliander, the compensation and benefits scheme are conforming their regulations. However, we believe that the product, tooling and environment should appeal to you the mosy.
We are paving the road on developing a simulation platform to help cities towards resilience. We are a team of versatile, international, innovative, talented people.
We provide simulation, analysis and visualization software to large companies or municipalities to create awareness about disruptive events that may affect their assets or societies and their vital infrastructures. When awareness is created, the software can also be used to train people to be better prepared for those crisis situations. Ultimately, adaptations to the digital world can be tested to mitigate the effects of those disruptions.
The calculations are performed by our cloud based Simulation Engine that is able to concurrently simulate vital infrastructures of an urban area, whether it be traffic, the operation status of the electricity or telecom network, or people living and working in those areas. What makes us unique is the cascading effects between various infrastructures. To illustrate, a flooding can cause roads to become inaccessible, having influence on the traffic, can cause malfunction of transformers leading to a power failure in parts of the city. Power outage in turn have effect on the operation of telecom towers that have battery power for only a limited time.
SIM-CI develops a software platform with accompanying tooling and services to assess and visualize the impact of multiple trends and disruptive events on societies and their critical infrastructures. We allow the various simulation methods to run in parallel, benefitting from results at any stage of the simulation process. Basically, we create an accurate digital twin copy of densely populated (urban) areas or (i.e. industrial) areas containing multiple critical, vital and potentially hazardous infrastructures, allowing them and inhabitants to interact.
We start by developing a digital model of the geography collecting, creating and organizing all available data, whether open or payed for. We then create a digital copy that is a geographically and geometrically accurate representation of its real-life counterpart.
We then proceed by plotting critical infrastructures into the digital twin prior to running a variety of (extreme) event scenario's like flooding, electricity failure or cyber hacking of critical infrastructure: For this purpose, we use our own models, but we can just as well incorporate client-built models and third-party models, we are in that sense data and model agnostic.
We then calculate the effects, including cascading effects, and present these in various impact indicators, from number of people affected to projected costs: ANALYSE
Finally, together with our clients, we consider various possible mitigation strategies and incorporate these to recalculate the effects
