SIMUL8 Standard and Professional
Elder (SIMUL8 Corporation)
This is a training session for new users of SIMUL8
Standard or SIMUL8 Professional software. If you are not yet a user, please
attend and learn how easy it is to use. SIMUL8's drag and drop interface,
combined with powerful logic language and external links (via virtually every
invented interface technology), means that SIMUL8 is easy to use for small
projects right through to large-scale embedded systems.

Visual8 Corp. demonstrates SIMUL8-Planner, a finite
capacity scheduling tool that combines production modeling with job sequencing
to create synchronized work order scheduling across plant operations.
SIMUL8-Planner is designed to address a wide range of planning and sequencing
problems with pre-built scheduling modules that allow for the rapid creation
and implementation of integrated solutions.

Wolverine Software: Introduction to SLX and
GPSS/H Simulation Languages
James Henriksen (Wolverine Software)
Wolverine Software will present an introduction to its
SLX and GPSS/H simulation languages and its Proof Animation Software,
including Proof 3D. The tutorial will include a number of small, but complete
and illustrative examples, exposing attendees to our products' architecture
and underlying philosophy.
PLCSTUDIO provides structured simulation framework for
verification and validation of programmable logic controller. You can build
virtual manufacturing system having I/O simulator and 3-D graphic simulator.
Control engineers can check various scenarios before real commissioning using
PLC-linked automatic simulation.

SAIC-Successful NASA Discrete Event Simulation
Kevin A. Ryan and Grant Cates (SAIC)
Two examples of successful discrete event simulation
models will be demonstrated. These are the Manifest Assessment by Simulation
Tool (MAST) used by NASA for its Space Shuttle program and the
Constellation-Requirement Assessment Simulation Technique, also employed by
NASA to perform risk analysis for the new program to return humans to the moon

AnyLogic is a simulation tool supporting
process-centric (discrete event), system dynamics, and agent-based modeling
approaches. The flexibility of the modeling language enables the user to
capture the complexity and heterogeneity of business, economy and social
systems at any desirable level of detail. AnyLogic set of primitives and
library objects allows you to model manufacturing, logistics, business
processes, human resources, and consumers' and patients' behavior in their
natural interaction. AnyLogic object-oriented model design paradigm provides
for modular and incremental construction of large models. At WSC'07 we will
first be presenting AnyLogic Professional--the most powerful edition of the
Emulate3D: the Future of
Ian McGregor (Emulate 3D Ltd.)
The future of simulation is physics-based, and it's
called Emulate3D. Learn how to build models repidly from intelligent catalog
elements, create catalog elements, generate videos with impact, connect
control systems to models and reduce automation project commissioning time and
costs. Understand why Intralox, Distrisort, GM and Nestle are among our users.
