FLOWORKS will calculate the ‘optimal’ flow through a network
A network can be any type of flow from a chemical plant to a production line or even electric energy. As long as the flows can be defined as linear, FLOWORKS will calculate the ‘optimal’ flow through the network.
The objects in FLOWORKS are able to define splits and joins either on ratio’s or as preferred flows. Flows can also be delayed or buffered, allowing for all kinds of complex flow and logic definitions.
FLOWORKS makes it possible to fast and accurately integrate continuous processes in a discrete model. This enables the simulation engine to calculate the most complex network models within seconds, by excluding any unnecessary calculations.
FLOWORKS is a unique plug-in module that can be used within the general purpose FlexSim simulator
A powerful plug-in module for FlexSim simulation software
The FLOWORKS module seamlessly integrates with FlexSim, integrating all FlexSim tools like dashboard reporting, experiment design and 3D visuals.
FLOWORKS objects are able to define splits and joins of flow, either on ratio’s or as preferred priorities. Flows can be delayed using pipe or conveyor objects, buffered in tanks or changed through unforeseen breakdowns or planned maintenance.
All objects have a built-in triggering mechanisms to fire on reaching certain tank levels, volumes being produced or received. This allows the modeler to accurately model the complex real life system in a fast and reliable way.
