dc.description.abstractManufacturing organisations are continuously innovating their systems and processes in order to survive in today¿s turbulent environment. There are currently a number of software tools available on the market, which can help managers and decision makers innovate their systems. These tools range from sophisticated modelling and simulation tools to project management tools. Each tool has their own unique selling propositions, specialised capabilities and relative strengths and weaknesses. However, most are operated by a single user and require a considerable amount of expertise. This paper highlights features found in some of these tools and used in organisations to facilitate systems innovation. It examines a sample of tools that are currently available and finally, it introduces a new software solution called Systems Innovation Manager (SIM). SIM is based on a collaborative approach to planning, implementing and managing innovation in a systems environment. It is an integrated system consolidating strategy, people and project related issues.en_US
