Since 1984, Minuteman Software has developed and supported
powerful, but user-friendly software.
Beginning with the pioneering interactive simulation product, GPSS/PC, and later GPSS
World, Minuteman Software has provided state-of-the-art software and services to the
Over the years we have prided ourselves in quality and customer satisfaction. Our
simulation products are used by thousands of professionals in over 55 countries around the world.
With the introduction of GPSS World first on OS/2 and now on the Microsoft
Windows compatible platforms, simulation analysts using Minuteman Software's products can
be effective in today's constantly changing Internet environments, but still retain
compatibility with models developed in the past.
GPSS, the General Purpose Simulation System, is the forerunner of all
discrete event simulation languages. Every commercial simulation language
available today owes a debt of gratitude to this powerful methodology developed
primarily by Geoffrey Gordon at IBM in the early 1960's.
In the early 1980's, we, at Minuteman Software, pioneered the development of
GPSS on personal computers. Our highly interactive simulation environment, GPSS/PC™,
brought what had been a prohibitively expensive technology to the desktop. Since then,
ten of thousands of simulation analysts worldwide have applied our simulation products, saving
many millions of dollars.
GPSS World™ is our interactive simulation development environment designed for use in
32 bit Windows environments. Not only does it have all the capability of
GPSS/PC™, but it integrates a large number of powerful simulation features including an
integrated programming language and programmable experiments. It also has built-in
probability distributions, a procedure library, and true multitasking. All this under
a powerful, but simplified, simulation environment.
The feature list is actually much longer, so we put it on separate pages. If
you would like to see more, start by clicking on Features.
In addition, we provide consulting services to users of computer simulation.
We can contribute to simulation planning, design, model construction, and
analysis. Please tell us about your needs.
