Custom Development Process

Creating a virtual simulation with Acadicus is fast, easy, and the lowest cost option if you wish to customize your scenarios.

This article describes the basics of our process and the steps you can take to begin creating your own virtual simulations.

Development Process Overview

By working with Acadicus, you get full control over the design of your simulation, along with the tools needed to customize and refine it over time.

Step 1: Simulation Plan

Estimated Time: 1 Week –  First, we need information about the case or scenario you wish to create. You can use our Simulation Plan template, or share it in your own existing format. This will describe the environment, patients, equipment, and other reference information we can use to create your simulation.  

Step 2: Estimate and Quote

Estimated Time: 1 Week – Based on the Simulation Plan, we develop a cost estimate. We offer an 80% discount in exchange for any content we create to be added to the shared Acadicus Content Library. Similarly, content created by other programs is available to be used in your simulations.   

Step 3: Development

Estimated Time: 4-6 Weeks – Upon approval of the Quote and subsequent invoice, we begin the development of the assets and interactivity required to support your project. This phase is led by an experienced Project Manager, and you are able to review our progress at each stage of development.  

Step 4: Implementation

Estimated Time: 1 to 2 Weeks:  During implementation, you can begin using the simulation scenario or case with students.   

Optional Step 5: Measure

Estimated Time: Varies – During implementation, we encourage clients to gather as much data as they can to determine the efficacy of the simulation. This data can be used to refine and improve the simulation over time.

Optional Step 6: Publish!

Estimated Time: Varies – Each simulation created can optionally be made available for purchase by other programs. Upon negotiating a revenue-sharing agreement, we can begin promoting and selling the simulation, enabling you to recover development costs and fund further expansion of your simulation.

After your simulation is created, you can easily use the Scene Editing Tools and Shared Content Library to customize and expand your simulation. We can train your technicians to make use of the full suite of tools available with your Acadicus Pro Space subscription.
