Micro Analysis & Design and Flexsim
Micro Analysis & Design-Micro Saint Sharp 2.5:
Simulating Our Changing World
Brett Saum (Micro Analysis &
Micro Saint Sharp has everything you need in discrete
event simulation. We recently released Version 2.5 with many new enhancements
including a plug-in to import/export with Microsoft Visio. Learn how your
business will benefit with simulation and find out how to increase
productivity, improve facilities design and maximize worker performance.
Flexsim's Simulation World
Nordgren (Flexsim Software Products)
Conference attendees know what simulation is. They know
what they would like simulation to be. Flexsim will show attendees how their
simulator is unique from other simulators, in terms of its features,
functionality and power. Flexsim will also take the time to show you what to
expect in the very near future!

Imagine That: Extend Simulation Tools -
Dave Krahl (Imagine That, Inc.)
See the present and the future of the Extend simulation
application. Session #1 will showcase the core Extend application and include
hierarchical model building, user interface creation and interactive modeling.
See how Extend's sophisticated simulation engine provides the ease of use,
quick turnaround and interactivity desired by new modelers and the scalability
and robustness required for large-scale, multi-faceted systems.
Imagine That: ExtendSim Simulation Tools -
Dave Krahl (Imagine That, Inc.)
In Session #2, Imagine That Inc. reveals ExtendSim 7...
boasting progressive new simulation technology and 3D animation. Get briefed
on using the integrated database, construction of models using new libraries
with scalable connectors and the uncannily realistic E3D environment. See what
close to 20 years of graphical model building technology brings to the plate.

Averill M. Law & Assoc. and Lanner
Averill M. Law & Assoc.: ExpertFit
Distribution-Fitting Software - Version 7
Averill M. Law (Averill
M. Law & Associates, Inc.)
We discuss the ExpertFit distribution-fitting software
and, in particular, the long-awaited Version 7 with its simplified user
interface, improved graphics, and a much-larger allowable sample size.
ExpertFit has been the leading such software since 1983 because it’s
statistically correct, has many more features, and is the best documented.
Lanner Group Latest Releases
Waller (Lanner Group Inc.)
Lanner will be showcasing the latest releases and
additions to the WITNESS Simulation Suite and highlighting recent
Manufacturing, Service and Defense applications. Optimization and Virtual
Reality technologies will be included PLUS new WITNESS Server and VISIO
Solutions and the new java simulation engine L-Sim, embedded in leading
partner process solutions.

Incontrol Enterprise Dynamics
Enterprise Dynamics Technology
Britals (Incontrol Enterprise Dynamics)
A new version of Enterprise Dynamics--Enterprise
Dynamics 7-–has been launched this year. It is available at three different
levels: Economy, Studio and Falcon. At every level many new features are
introduced to improve your simulation building experience. Objects and events,
parameterization, instant 3D and VR visualization, a powerful instant
open-source language and other outstanding features have convinced many
organizations to choose Enterprise Dynamics as their simulation platform. Now
technologies like HLA and XML are being embraced to extend the platform
capabilities even further beyond a single computer simulation environment to
the next level in modeling, simulation, visualization and control.
Matthijs Jongboer (Incontrol Enterprise Dynamics)
Enterprise Dynamics is used by many organizations to
model, simulate, visualize and control their business. Market specific
applications-–based on Enterprise Dynamics-–are providing simulation users
useful tools and objects to reduce the time required for modelling and
validation. Also, these applications provide ready-to-use animation objects to
present their models in a recognizable to their stakeholders. Powerful
applications are available for production and material handling (Logistic
Suite, Warehouse Manager, Powertrain), airport industry (Samanta), pedestrian
simulation (Plato), railways, transportation and infrastructure.

ShowFlow and XJ Technologies
ShowFlow-Serious Simulation on a
Stephen Webb (Webb Systems Limited)
Many simulation projects take a long time to complete,
are very expensive and use costly development systems. Webb Systems will
describe a number of projects that were completed in days, using a simulation
package that cost less than $2,000 to buy outright. All these projects
delivered benefits to the customer far in excess of the cost of the work.
ShowFlow’s straightforward structure and easy-to-learn syntax make it an ideal
choice for building small to medium sized models. Don’t be misled by the
price, ShowFlow has all the features needed to develop complex models in
manufacturing and logistics industries. The “what you see is what you model”
approach makes it easy for the first time model builder to get to grips with
the basics of simulation. The ability to produce a fully working model quickly
provides positive feedback. Once the basic approaches have been mastered, the
user may move on to more powerful products, making ShowFlow an ideal
introduction to the subject.
XJ Technologies: AnyLogic 6-New IDE & Engine
for the Most Powerful Simulator
Andrei Borschev (XJ Technologies)
AnyLogic is the only simulation tool directly
supporting multiple modeling methods: discrete event, agent based and system
dynamics. Starting with version 6 (release date: December 2006), AnyLogic
became even more powerful. It now works on virtually all platforms, includes a
lot of modeler assistance tools (auto-completion, teamwork support,
refactoring, source-code debugging, etc.), integrates with GIS and CAD, and
also features a new engine that runs models 10-50 times faster and drastically
reduces the memory requirements: you can now run more than four millions of
agents on a standard machine.
