Introducing InterDynamics

InterDynamics was created in 1992 with a founding mission to visualise the way organisations work in a way never before possible, applying human intelligence, interactive software and the highest professional values.

We now work with some of the world’s leading names in transportation, logistics, mining and manufacturing, providing decision support solutions and fatigue risk management methodologies.

While our business was born in Adelaide, Australia, we have expanded to include a nationwide and overseas network of consultants and developers to meet the needs of a growing client base.

Shedding new light on business operations

In order to provide a big picture view of the way organisations operate, we use Planimate, our own simulation based application development platform, first created in 1989. Since then, Planimate has continuously delivered a variety of management tools, supporting planning and scheduling and improving operational profitability.

In 1999, we released FAID (now FAID Quantum). This ground-breaking software uses scientific studies of fatigue and impairment to help individuals and organisations exposed to shift work-related fatigue. It is based on a fatigue-scoring formula licensed from the University of South Australia’s Centre for Sleep Research. FAID Quantum now also incorporates a second biomathematical model developed through research by the Appleton Institute using real world sleep-wake data to provide highly accurate alertness prediction.

Building on FAID’s philosophy, a broader approach to Fatigue Risk Management was developed by InterDynamics, in conjunction with Zurich Risk Engineering. Our Risk-Based Approach takes an integrated view of fatigue risks, equipping businesses to manage them more effectively.

Our Risk-Based Approach

Fatigue is difficult to assess because it is subject to a wide range of factors, including job type, activity, environment and time of day. With so many variables, a risk management approach is vital.
