5 Years! September 15, 2014.

While The Big Lean Simulation Library, LLC was not legally formed until early 2015, I started planning the models and laying the groundwork for it on September 15, 2014.

The first step was to find the software I would use, so most of that day was spent downloading trial versions of simulation software and reading license agreements.  The hard part was finding one where I could distribute the models without forcing my customers to spend $10K on a simulation software license to view them.  A short time later I found JammSim.  Because I was allowed to distribute it for free (as long as I followed the rules of the license agreement), that meant my customers could run my models without buying additional software.

Life is good.

Our Site Visitors

Here is a list of where our site visitors come from (descending order). I was not surprised by the distribution, but I was surprised by the shear number of countries and locations represented. I do not plan to do any projects in Nepal, for example, but it is good to know our simulations and videos may have been useful to someone there.
