Decision Modelling

Evans & Peck’s decision modelling team provides decision makers with certainty. Our structured and transparent analytical framework and cutting edge modelling tools enable insights to generate innovative solutions.

Supporting complex decisions with advanced analytics

Decision modelling provides a framework for making informed decisions by simulating probable outcomes, using data effectively and stress-testing key decisions.

Evans & Peck’s approach provides decision makers with new ways of exploring alternate scenarios to fully appreciate the key factors affecting outcomes.

We are skilled in a wide range of decision modelling methods and techniques including:

  • Simulation modelling - agent based, discrete event, system dynamics.
  • Optimisation - linear and non-linear, genetic and meta-heuristics programming.
  • Statistical analysis - predictive data analysis, statistical modelling, machine learning.
  • Financial modelling - real options.
  • Executive dashboards

Providing solutions to complex systems across the entire lifecycle

Evans & Peck assists private and public sector clients to make better decisions by giving them access to leading edge decision modelling tools and advising them on structured and transparent approaches for dealing with complex problems.

Our decision modelling team are experts in innovative problem-solving across a diverse range of difficult project and business challenges including:

  • Policy Analysis – we evaluate the benefits of policy changes and identify the most efficient implementation pathways.
  • Capital Planning – analyse the optimal portfolio of projects to implement.
  • Workforce planning - develop flexible and responsive workforce strategies.
  • Design Optimisation - optimise capital expenditure by testing asset performance under different operating regimes.
  • Process Improvement - Avoid unnecessary capital expenditure by increasing productivity and optimise maintenance strategies to minimise operational disruption

We support the development of our clients’ in-house modelling capabilities through software sales and training. Please contact if you are interested in purchasing a licence or undertaking training in AnyLogic simulation software.

AnyLogic is innovative simulation tool built on the latest advances in modelling science and information technology made in the last ten years. Compared to traditional tools, AnyLogic provides much higher return on modelling efforts, because it allows to:

  • Create models faster with visual, flexible, extensible and reusable active objects, standard and custom, and Java
  • Model more accurately and capture more phenomena by using multiple modelling approaches, combine them and adjust them for your particular problem
  • Use excellent set of analysis and optimization tools directly from the modelling environment
  • Easily and efficiently integrate AnyLogic open-architecture model with office or corporate software including spreadsheets, databases, ERP, and CRM systems, or embed the model directly into real-time operational environment
  • Increase the model lifecycle by efficiently maintaining the model as the real-world system evolves

Examples of simulation applications built using AnyLogic can be found here.
