Simmakers Adventure Travel: Sea and Mountains

Jul 27, 2016

The annual adventure travel to mountains has become a good summer tradition of Simmakers. Needless to say, that action sports are the “must have” of such travel routine. All the great gains in the work on complex scientific and program solutions are impossible not only without a sharp mind but also without spirit strengthened by trial.

Success Story: Frost 3D Universal User’s Experience

Feb 10, 2016

At the end of November 2015 Simmakers Ltd. was approached to provide the Ukrainian Oil and Gas Institute (UkrNGI) with Frost 3D Universal software package and also to conduct further training courses for the team of experts. And as early as December 14 (2015) it was appointed the course of training and guidance at Simmakers Development Center (Minsk, Belarus).

The UkrNGI specialists arrived for training with their technical drawings and projects that have already became a good tradition (it’s already a common thing among our trainees, and we welcome that). As a result the practical class was based mostly on the customer’s real projects.

On the second day of training the specialists of the Institute asked us to help them with some project computations they would have to perform at work.

“It was really hard times,” says Taras Lenyk, lead engineer of Oil & Gas Department. “We saw this program for the first time, and have never performed real projects in it before. Although there was a lot of information during the training course and everything seemed to be clear, but still we all had no experience in software tools. And before the 25th of December we have had to conduct 15 computations, the results of which determine whether the design of the whole oil field will be performed by our team.”
