Decision analytic modelling software in HEDS

HEDS as increased its portfolio of modelling software skills with the purchase of several Decision Pro licenses.  This adds to our expertise in other specialist modelling software including Simul8, Arena and Extend Sim.  This is on top of our Excel, visual basic and C++ programming capacity.

This knowledge has been used by NICE in two recent appraisals where HEDS were brought in to help review groups tackle manufacturer submissions – dronderone and AChEIs - based on discrete event simulations.
