FlexSim 2016 update 2 Simulation Software is now available for download
Simulation software FlexSim 2016 : the latest version of FlexSim’s flagship general purpose simulation package. This edition of the software adds some key functionality to improve upon the previous version 7. The main improvement in 2016 is the ProcessFlow module. .
Improved Stability Through Multiple Releases
FlexSim 2016, which was released in May, is a landmark release because it offers—for the first time—the option of two software versions. If you use FlexSim 2016, you’ll receive the latest features and bug fixes just as with any new release of FlexSim. But you also have the option of choosing the stable branch of FlexSim (16.0.2); this long-term release will continue to receive bug fixes introduced in subsequent updates without the new features, giving you maximum stability. And when FlexSim 2017 comes out next year, a new long-term release will be available with all the great features that appeared in the various updates to FlexSim 2016.
Helpful, Easy-to-Use Templates
This release also introduces templates for Process Flow. These pre-made standard objects—along with two incredibly powerful AGV templates—can be customized using activities in Process Flow, as opposed to a combination of triggers and other methods. Does your processor need a unique cleaning delay? Choose the processor template and make it exactly how you need it be.
The AGV templates are game changers, vastly reducing the time you need to spend developing the logic for AGV models. Tasks such as parking, loading/unloading, work generation, and elevator control are basically pre-built and ready to be plugged into your layout. The image below shows an AGV parking itself and waiting for activation, done in seconds using a template.
