This release is another huge step forward for FlexSim’s AGV module, both in its improvements to model more warehousing situation and in its new ability to model train and rail systems. FlexSim 2020 Update 1 also streamlines libraries with new pop-out menus, introduces a simpler and more friendly Statistics Collector, and much more.
News and notes about official FlexSim software releases.
This release features improvements and additions throughout the software, from visuals to emulation to people-based modeling and beyond. FlexSim 2020 adds support for the OPC UA protocol when making PLC connections, adds numerous updates and additions for people-based modeling, new lighting effects, and much more.
This release introduces a massive amount of functionality and new tools for modeling warehouses, including new storage system objects and options. FlexSim 2019 Update 2 also includes rendering with ray tracing, extensive dashboard improvements, and more.
FlexSim 2019 Update 1 expands on the People Module, with better visuals, automatic data collection, chart templates, and elevators.
FlexSim 2019 includes the ability to import JT files, improvements to the A* and People Modules, and much more.
FlexSim 2018 Update 2 provides the ability to use distributed CPUs in the Experimenter and Optimizer—either using Cloud computing, your own computers in a local network, or both. This means that you can significantly reduce the time to run replications in your FlexSim experiments. Plus reversible conveyors, Sankey diagrams, and much more. Takes a long time (more than a few minutes) to run a single replication Contains a very large number of replications
FlexSim 2018 Update 1 brings improved database connectivity to improve your data experience. It also comes with new objects (including a waiting line for people-based systems), box plot charts, and much more.
FlexSim 2018 brings the new People Module for modeling people-based systems, a brand-new library of Dashboard templates, Excel import/export enhancements, and much more.
FlexSim 2017 Update 2 brings an important change to how FlexSim collects and displays data. 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.
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. This update also includes expanded ease-of-use features to save time building simulation models, improvements to SQL in FlexSim, and much more.
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, and read on for more information on the great new features and improvements in this release.
FlexSim 2016 Update 2 contains a handful of key user interface improvements that will streamline and enhance the modeling experience, including the all-new Quick Library interface. We've also added three new Process Flow activities (Split, Synchronize, and Join) to help with coordinating processes—you can use these coordination activities to selectively synchronize several events, allowing you to properly model these complex systems with less time and effort than ever before.
This version of FlexSim introduces a stable, long-term release of our simulation modeling software that will continue to receive bug fixes for several releases. It 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. The AGV templates are game changers, vastly reducing the time you need to spend developing the logic for AGV models.
FlexSim 7.7 features exciting exciting visual enhancements to add even more realism to your models. We’ve also included Process Flow, a powerful and flexible new tool for handling complex logic.
FlexSim 7.5 comes pre-packaged with the all-new Conveyor Module, a powerful library for simulating conveyor systems. It was designed to be user friendly yet capable of modeling complex material handling systems.
FlexSim 7.3 adds several features, including AutoSave, that will make model building more convenient. This latest version also builds on the visual improvements in versions 7 and 7.1 to cement FlexSim as the industry leader in 3D simulation software. Check out the new Toolbox, the Model Floor object, and much more.
The biggest change in 7.1.0 is to the area of analytics, which have been fully assimilated into the dashboard interface. The information that was previously found in FlexSim Chart and the Statistics tab of an object’s properties window can now be accessed in one central location, making dashboards a “one stop shop” for real-time data and analysis.
