Power and Free Conveyors in SIMUL8 2016

Written by

One of the most prevalent conveyor systems within a wide varied of manufacturing applications is the “Power and Free” conveyor. It is commonly used within automotive manufacturing facilities; examples include moving subassembly, or conveying engines to the mainline.   What is a Power and Free Conveyor? A Power and Free conveyor allows for non-synchronous movement, which permits loads held by carriers to move at different paces. The conveyor is typically made up of two internal tracks; one referred to as the power track and the other the trolley track. The upper power track contains the chain and catching-dogs; and the…

Tabs & HTML Dialogs in SIMUL8 2016

Written by SIMUL8

We’re really excited to introduce a new feature to SIMUL8 2016 helping you to create an interactive, feature rich, polished web based interface for your simulation.   With this exciting new feature now SIMUL8 users have the power to turn simulations into powerful web-based user applications. Select a tab to open dialogs, custom reports and spreadsheets within the simulation window. Dialogs can now be linked to an HTML file that controls all the formatting and layout of the dialog you create. Used together with tabs you can create beautiful looking data input screens and results dashboards!   Find out about…

Submit your WinterSim Poster or Case Study

Written by SIMUL8

We’re looking forward to another year at The Winter Simulation Conference in December. Every year WinterSim invites submissions for presentations in the Poster Session and PhD Colloquium and case study track.   The Winter Simulation Conference (WSC) is the premier international forum for disseminating recent advances in the field of dynamic systems modeling and simulation. This year’s theme at WSC 2016 is Simulating Complex Service Systems. This theme emphasizes the increasingly complex engineered and human systems in highly connected environments, the availability of data to help us model such systems, technological advances which continue to push the limits of computation,…

Conditional Queues in SIMUL8 2016

Written by SIMUL8

We’re really excited to introduce a new feature to SIMUL8 2016 called Conditional Queues.   Watch the video as Glenn, SIMUL8 support specialist, shows you how to use the new Conditional Queue feature in SIMUL8 2016.   At SIMUL8 we want our users to build simulations quickly and to use the graphics in simulations to effectively analyze the system. Users can now add conditions to queues so that when bottlenecks happen the queues will visibly change color.   When working with hundreds of queues in a simulation this will really help to easily pick out the queues that are bottlenecking…
