Essential ExtendSim TrainingPut yourself on a faster track and learn how to build simulation models using ExtendSim in this 4.5 day hands-on workshop. Basics of discrete event simulation will be covered plus you'll get an essential understanding of the ExtendSim architecture. By the end of the course, you will feel confident in building ExtendSim models and have your eyes opened to the powerful tools that can be quickly used for in-depth model analysis.

Topics include:

Understanding fundamental simulation concepts

Learning the basic item handling blocks and using key value handling blocks

Working with item properties, such as attributes and priorities

Routing, plus batching and unbatching items

Presentation features including hierarchy, cloning, and 2D animation

Resource Management using the Resource Pool and Resource Item methods

Understanding basic simulation statistics

Working with Equation blocks

Creating, editing, and accessing an ExtendSim database

Learning validation and verification techniques

Scenario Manager

Data management and exchange with an ExtendSim database

Debugging and troubleshooting

Essential classEssential ExtendSim Training is designed for Engineers, Managers, System Analysts, and anyone else who wants to learn simulation modeling and/or get up to speed quickly with ExtendSim. It is appropriate both for those who are new to ExtendSim and for beginning/intermediate simulation modelers.

Students will build, run, and analyze a model the very first day of this course. The rest of the week will be spent exploring modeling components and concepts as students apply these concepts to a class project while being coached by the instructor. The students then learn and apply more advanced concepts to the model to understand appropriate analysis techniques. The focus is on discrete event modeling, but the class is also essential for new rate-based modelers.

Prerequisites and Preparation for the Course

You will be working on a Windows laptop so you must have basic Window computer skills. Knowledge of basic statistics (random distributions and confidence intervals) is recommended.

Before your first day of class, it will be extremely helpful if you familiarize yourself with ExtendSim. If you have not already done so, please read the first two Tutorial chapters of the ExtendSim User Guide.
