This update to FlexSim 2017 takes FlexSim’s virtual reality capabilities to the next level. It starts with the Oculus Touch hand controllers. With their natural gestures and finger movements, this technology will let you experience a FlexSim model like never before. The feature video (below) shows someone lifting, dropping, pressing, pulling, and pushing to interact with an actively running simulation. We’re
Happy New Year! We’re ringing in 2017 by bringing you the latest edition of our flagship simulation software.
A lot of the development in FlexSim 2017 centered around FlexScript, our powerful and easy-to-use scripting language. We believe the end result is a more cohesive and intuitive experience when you choose to use FlexScript in a model—check out our recent blog post for more details.
Remember that the Express version of FlexSim 2017 is always available for free. If you’d like more details on the release, here are some great resources:

The third FlexSim Germany User Meeting will be held November 22-23, 2016 at the headquarters of Miele & Cie. KG. in Guetersloh, Germany. After last year’s successful addition of a FlexSim workshop to the user meeting, the same expanded program will be offered again this year.
The meeting program includes:
Tuesday, November 22, 2016 — FlexSim Workshop
This workshop focuses on FlexSim and includes various ProcessFlow examples, along with SQl use and instruction on Emulation. The rest of this hands-on event will be made up of topics set forth by attendees. Please bring your own computer.

FlexSim 2016 Update 2, the latest version of FlexSim’s flagship simulation modeling software, has been released and is now officially available worldwide.
This update contains a handful of key user interface improvements that will streamline and enhance the modeling experience. Let’s start with the all-new Quick Library, which provides fast access to objects as you construct a 3D model. Simply double-click on a blank space to quickly add an object, or connect an existing object to a blank space to add an object and complete the connection in one step. This is just one of many UI improvements you’ll find in
For companies interested in making the switch to radio-frequency identification (RFID) in their operations, simulation can now help make the choice a little clearer.
According to RFID Journal, SMART Technology Group, a Swiss/Polish high-tech company that specializes in RFID solutions, has developed a benefits-oriented simulation service in conjunction with Cempel Consulting, FlexSim’s partner in Poland.
The model, developed by Cempel Consulting, allows companies to compare how RFID stacks up against other methods of labeling used in their operations. It shows the benefits of switching to RFID within a realistic, visually compelling simulation.
We’ve introduced long term stability, templates, and other exciting features in the latest update to our flagship simulation software.
Improved Stability Through Multiple Releases
FlexSim 2016 Update 1, which was released on June 22, is a landmark release because it offers—for the first time—the option of two software versions. If you use FlexSim 2016 Update 1, 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
Cempel Consulting, FlexSim’s partner in Poland and East-Central Europe, was honored recently with an Innovator 2016 award.
The award was given at the Pogoria Residence Hotel by the University of Dabrowa Gornicza on May 19. It is bestowed upon people, companies, and institutions for outstanding leadership in business and
Two universities in Brazil, the Federal University of Santa Maria (UFSM) and the Federal Institute of Minas Gerais—Bambuí Campus (IFMG), have received educational licenses of FlexSim as part of a partnership with FlexSim Brazil. These licenses will be used in simulation teaching and research at both institutions.
“The educational version of FlexSim is an excellent opportunity for our students to consolidate the scientific knowledge acquired in class,” said João Flávio, professor at IFMG. “Through the software, I can see that the students who have simulation or correlated disciplines in Operational Research will be able to [create] even more complex and bigger
