Monday, June 9th, 2014 - ISD Analytics
ISD Analytics in partnership with TMN Simulation will present a Masterclass on Simulation-Based Predictive Analytics in Adelaide (Australia) on 25th June, titled: "From Human/Consumer Behavior Modeling to Simulating Internal Business Processes".

The Masterclass is part of a series of Simulation Australia Masterclass programs. ISD Analytics will cover the use of simulation for predictive consumer analytics and human behavior modeling. Topics that will be covered by ISD Analytics include:
- The emerging role of simulation in predictive analytics
- Cognitive-behavioral micro-simulation using agent-based modeling
- The consumer decision model (CDM) cube
- Case studies and insights for a range of business and Government applications such as energy, water, emergency response, retail/manufacturing, automotive and health.

Further details of the Masterclass are below.

Simulation Based Predictive Analytics:
From Human/Consumer Behavior Modeling to Simulating Internal Business Processes

Business and Government are making significant investments in Big Data and predictive analytics in order to utilise the extensive quantity of available data to make better business or policy decisions. Simulation based predictive analytics is a powerful and emerging tool that can allow organisations to utilise their data to create highly predictive models of customers/community external to their organisation, or of business processes within their organization. These predictive models allow organisations to run what-if and test the effectiveness or future impact of strategic options to support better decision making. Better decisions lead to greater sales, reduced costs, or better Government policies. This master class will provide an overview of two different types of simulation based analytics:
• Consumer predictive analytics and human behavior modeling: used to better understand and predict your customer/community behavior, and test interventions to change their behavior, in order to support corporate strategy, marketing, pricing, sales and demand forecasting, and Government policy and social planning; and
• Business process modeling and simulation: used to improve or optimize business processes within an organization, such as logistics and manufacturing processes, to improve productivity and efficiency, and reduce costs.

Date: Wednesday 25 June 2014
Time: 9.30am – 2.30pm
Location: Level 7, 101 Grenfell Street, Adelaide, SA

Dr Don Perugini, Director, ISD Analytics
Dr Don Perugini has spent over 15 years in Defense and commercial industry using advanced simulation-based analytics to accurately predict how humans behave, as well as how to influence their behavior. Dr Perugini has applied this analytics technology commercially globally to consumer markets including energy, water, retail, manufacturing, transport, Government Policy, and emergency management. Analytics is used to support Government strategic planning, policy design, (micro)-marketing, behavior change, demand management, market research, and customer personalization.
