SimHerd-Flex: quantifying the economic opportunity of using CowControl

The SimHerd-Flex application that is developed for Nedap, is a mini-version of the full SimHerd model. In contrast to the full SimHerd model that can basically simulate ANY scenario in a specific herd, this mini-version is only able to estimate the economic impact of implementing CowControl by Nedap in a specific dairy herd.

The technical term of this mini-version, is a Response Surface Model (RSM). An RSM describes the behavior of the full SimHerd model as good as possible, while easier and faster to use. Making an RSM is an acknowledged discipline in the field of simulation modeling. For more info, please read the related article on wikipedia
