Put 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.
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
Data management and exchange with an ExtendSim database
Debugging and troubleshooting
Essential 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 Windows 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.
