Upgrade to ExtendSim 10

ExtendSim

We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your patience as we've been fine-tuning ExtendSim 10. It has taken us a bit longer than we anticipated, but it does take time to build a brilliant simulation tool.

We've done a complete re-write of the software incorporating hundreds of thousands of lines of code, added a laundry list of new features, updated the look and feel of the software, plus are introducing the first ever integrated reliability block diagramming tool in a simulation package!

Check out the complete list of new features in ExtendSim 10!

________

New Package LineUp

Core features new in all ExtendSim 10 products:

Build and run larger models with 64-bit computing power plus run multiple models simultaneously using ExtendSim 10’s multi-threaded capabilities.

Track events creating customized reports of simulation outputs with the new Report Manager.

Analyze model output more efficiently with powerful new Chart blocks.

Build models more efficiently with the new point and click interface and Right-Click Connect to add and connect blocks as you build.

Tool palettes are now moveable and dockable, plus you can tear-off menus, worksheets, notebooks, etc.

There are brand new Charts and Reports libraries to document and analyze model output.

Data management is even better than before with improved Data Import Export capability.

________

ExtendSim CPExtendSim CP

Continuous Process Modeling

A robust set of core features plus specialized constructs for modeling continuous processes.

ExtendSim CP 10 includes everything you're accustomed to in earlier versions of CP like ExtendSim databases, Optimizer, and integrated authoring and development environment. Plus, other new features you'll get in CP 10 include:

CP 10 now includes the Scenario Manager to configure and run multiple simulation model configurations or scenarios.

Ability to query an ExtendSim database, rank its records, and intelligently select one record using custom ranking rules with the Query Equation (Value library).

Programmers will appreciate the new source code (text) editor that’s similar to Notepad++ with custom colors, code folding, brace matching, auto indent, word/line wrap, zoom/reduce in script window, show end of line characters, show white space, and more. The dialog editor and structure windows are now tabs instead of panes plus you can add graphic objects to dialogs. Improved code completion plus Search and Find will make building/changing blocks easier than ever.

ExtendSim DEExtendSim DE

Discrete Event Modeling

Adds a comprehensive message-based discrete event architecture and capabilities to ExtendSim CP.

This tool has everything you need for modeling discrete event processes: a robust message-based discrete event architecture, customizable attributes, and rule-based routing. In addition to the new core features + new features in CP, with DE you'll get:

Automatic Executive block placement when opening a new worksheet.

Ability to query an ExtendSim database, rank its records, and intelligently select one record using custom ranking rules with the Query Equation (Item library) block.

If you’re working with multiple types of resources and complex resource requirements, systematically deal with them using the enhanced Advanced Resource Management system in ExtendSim DE.

________

ExtendSim ProExtendSim Pro

Advanced Simulation Technologies

Adds advanced simulation capabilities for specialized industries to ExtendSim DE.

In addition to the new core features + new features in CP + the new features in DE, the Pro package has all the extras:

New home to the Rate library and LP solver (used to be in AT).

Big news for ExtendSim Pro 10 is the introduction of the first ever reliability block diagramming tool to be integrated with a simulation tool. Couple this with the power of discrete rate or discrete event modeling and watch your socks get knocked off!

Add-in for creating an ExtendSim database in Excel.

Stat::Fit (from Geer Mountain) for distribution fitting.

And for a limited time, we are offering an amazing deal on upgrades to ExtendSim Pro from ExtendSim AT. Just $1699! But only through the end of February 2019. On March 1, 2019, the cost to upgrade to Pro from ExtendSim AT will be $2699.

Product Licensing Terminology

________

Individual, Floating, and Node-Locked Licenses

Individual • What was called a single user license is now referred to as an Individual license. The Individual license (just like its predecessor the single user license) is for exclusive use by one user.

Floating • Network licenses are now called Floating licenses. It is still a license for 2 or more concurrent users with centralized administration. With the Floating license's deployment flexibility you can easily add, assign, or reassign users at no cost plus track usage.

Node-Locked • The new Node-Locked license is for sequential use by multiple users on one computer.

 ________

Model Developer Editions

 

These are Full Versions of ExtendSim that let you build models. Model Developer Edition (MDE) ExtendSim products have the same core set of capabilities, just like full versions in earlier ExtendSim releases. In them you can create and build:

Models, blocks, and interfaces; change values and settings; run simulations and animations; do analysis and optimization; and save and export results.

Models to share with others to use in the Analysis RunTime, Player RunTime, and Student versions of ExtendSim.

Custom blocks and libraries.

Model Developer Editions can be Individual, Floating, or Node-Locked licenses of ExtendSim Pro, ExtendSim DE, or ExtendSim CP.

 ________

Specialized Licenses

Sidekicks to the Model Developer Editions, specialized ExtendSim products introduce you to the software and/or allow you to experiment with, optimize, or run analysis on models built in an MDE.

Trial • The old Demo version of ExtendSim has been replaced by the Trial version. It's 30 days to try-before-you-buy the Model Developer Edition of any ExtendSim package without any limitations - except the time restraint of course. The Trial version can then be activated into a fully licensed product.

Analysis RunTime • Use Analysis RunTime for the experimentation, optimization, and analysis of model built in MDEs.

Player RunTime • Show and run an ExtendSim model in the Player RunTime. (Available in early 2019)

ASPExtendSim ASP is for web-based analysis. Enter data and obtain simulation results on a computer, tablet, or smartphone via a user-defined form that accesses the simulation power of ExtendSim ASP.

OEM • The OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) license is for system builders who want to embed the simulation power of ExtendSim or ExtendSim technologies within their own applications.

When not to upgrade to 10

If you are using the 3D capabilities in ExtendSim Suite, we recommend you stick with ExtendSim Suite 9 as the 3D functionality has not yet been integrated into ExtendSim 10.

If your computer has a 32-bit processor, stick with ExtendSim 9. ExtendSim 10 requires a 64-bit processor to run properly.
