Case Studies

Case Studies

A growing collection of exercises developed by ExtendSim simulation engineers provide ease of mind for educators and credibility for students. Each exercise consists of a detailed case study for students, a set of reference guides, solutions document, and final model.

Case Studies plus the Block and Code Reference Guides can be downloaded here. Access to complete exercise packets including case study and solutions is limited to educators at accredited institutions. Professors can request entire case study packets by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
