DATA = POWER (but only when it’s the right data applied in the right way).
At St. Onge, we help clients understand and leverage smart analysis to drive informed decisions. Simulations and computer-based modeling are powerful tools to analyze and present data. Done well and applied strategically, they offer critical insights to help analyze, test and validate scenarios and solutions – all fueled with real-time insights.
The idea of using simulations to guide supply chain planning has grown exponentially in recent years, but every simulation is not created equal. The fact is, modeling and simulation can be powerful predictive analysis tools, but to be effective they must leverage the right data and have clear goals. At St. Onge, we help clients understand when simulation modeling is the right fit for their project needs. It starts with asking foundational questions:
- What is the problem?
- What answers do I need?
- What do I want to measure?
- What are my goals?
- Do I have the resources/data to model? Can I get them?
Answering these questions helps determine if a simulation is the right fit or, in the case of more conceptual questions, when an animation may be more effective. Once we’ve determined a simulation will provide the best results, we work to define the type of analysis needed:
- Strategic – used to analyze more high-level flow concepts
- Tactical – applied to determine asset allocation based on a combination of fixed (space, equipment, etc.) and variable (i.e. functional location of products and personnel, operating methods, etc.) resources
- Operational – developed to schedule and manage resources in real-time for a defined process
Once we define the approach, we get to work, collecting and analyzing the right data to present insights and scenarios that fuel smart planning around raw materials, resources, cash flow, material handling and flow, labor allocations and time-based modeling (factoring choreography and behavior over time). We’re leaders in LIDAR (light detection and ranging) point cloud data collection and application – and pride ourselves on helping clients get the most from their data.

Captivate an audience. Bring clarity to complex topics. Leave a lasting impression for management presentations. Make an impact on operators, clients or prospects – all through animation.
At St. Onge, we combine our sophisticated multi-media capabilities with our unmatched supply chain expertise to create and deliver powerful interactive audio and visual programs that can aid in the communication of design concepts, ideas and scenarios.
Our process begins by helping determine when an animation is the right fit for your project. We define the goals and approach that will deliver the best value for your individual needs and provide a first-class experience from storyboarding through post-production. Our animation services are often delivered as part of a broader supply chain engineering or sales and operations planning projects; however, we also offer direct, stand-alone animation support across a host of industries and applications.
Animations allow you to get the best-view of the scene, considering multiple angles and approaches. Distractions like poor lighting and sound are non-issues and the ability to freeze or speed-up time, view through obstacles and see inside equipment provide an invaluable vantage point.
If you’re thinking about animation for your next project, think St. Onge. Reach out to request samples of our work and speak to a member of the team. We look forward to learning about your vision.
At St. Onge, we leverage a combination of off-the-shelf hardware and software in conjunction with our own proprietary processes and software to engineer designs that deliver lightweight, yet photo-realistic computer 2D and 3D models uniquely suited to interactive training, simulation, visualization and similar applications.
From static “flow descriptive” images to virtual tours that take you inside a proposed site, facility process or operation, CAD modeling allows design concepts to be presented visually for review and discussion. Models can integrate engineering data, aiding in the development of itemized equipment lists and associated costs – key factors in concept validation and capital appropriation efforts.
CAD modeling is one of the many visualization tools offered by St. Onge. Our approach is focused on delivering the right tools for your individual projects needs. In addition to CAD services, we offer animation solutions and comprehensive simulation and modeling. Our team looks at the big picture, assessing the data available against the project to determine the right level of visualization, working closely with your team from concept to delivery.
