FlexSim 2017 Update 2: Better Data, Better Analysis
FlexSim 2017 Update 2 is now officially out and available for download! Current FlexSim users can upgrade right away—and anyone can download the latest version of FlexSim’s flagship simulation modeling software and try it out under the free Express license.
The biggest change is in collecting and displaying data. We’ve introduced the Statistics Collector, a tool that gathers raw data from the objects and events you specify. While a model runs, this data is placed into a table—the data can then be viewed, transformed, visualized in charts and graphs, or easily exported for more analysis.
This data and analysis change has two major advantages. First, it gives you fine-tuned control to gather exactly the data you’re looking for. Second, it gives direct access to the raw data; FlexSim now behaves similarly to popular spreadsheet and charting applications, where the data comes first and then any number of charts and graphs can be created from the data.
The improvements don’t just stop at data, though—FlexSim 2017 Update 2 is packed with enhancements to visualization and animation, AStar (our automated pathfinding module), the User Manual, application-specific templates, and much more.
