Essential ExtendSim Training

Put yourself on a faster track to success by learning how to build and analyze simulation models using ExtendSim in this 4 day hands-on workshop. Basics of discrete event simulation will be covered in the first half of the Essential ExtendSim Training course, plus you'll get an essential understanding of the ExtendSim architecture. The focus of the second half is on problem solving.

From the very first day of this course, you will be building, running, and analyzing models. The rest of the week will be spent exploring modeling components and concepts as you apply these concepts to a class project while being coached by the instructor. All the while you will be learning and applying more advanced concepts to the model to understand appropriate analysis techniques.

Essential classBy 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.

The focus of this course is on discrete event modeling, but the class is also essential for new rate-based modelers, 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.

Topics include:

Understanding fundamental simulation concepts

Modeling with ExtendSim

Working with data

Learning debugging, validation, and verification techniquesEssential ExtendSim Training - Agenda

Model analysis

And much, much more. Download the complete agenda for Essential ExtendSim Training here.

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 go through the Tutorials in the Discrete Event Quick Start Guide or watch its video.

Advanced ExtendSim Training • Database Techniques & Programming

Advanced Training CourseMaster some of ExtendSim’s most powerful capabilities:

Gain advanced skills with the ExtendSim internal database

Learn how to maximize usage of equation-based blocks

Create custom components in the ExtendSim development environment

Using hands-on exercises, you will not only learn how to navigate ExtendSim internal relational databases, but how to structure a database in your own model. Plus, pick up techniques to use the database to develop really advanced constructs you NEVER knew were possible.

Learn how to wake up your blocks through the databases’ Link Alerts feature, plus configure compiled logical statements as you get in-depth into the programming of equation-based blocks.

In addition, this course covers the common uses and features of the ExtendSim programming language (ModL), as well as the mechanics of block creation. You’ll start by building a simple ExtendSim block and storing it in a library. Then, as you delve deeper into the development environment, you’ll add more features to your custom block.

This course is ideal for Engineers, Managers, System Analysts, and anyone else anyone else who wants to learn how to manage data and maximize the usage of databases in ExtendSim and how to create custom components and features in ExtendSim.

Course topics include:

Creating and working with ExtendSim databases

Dynamic linking between an ExtendSim database and data

Using Equation blocksAdvanced ExtendSim Training - Agenda

Designing custom blocks and libraries

And much, much more. Download the complete agenda for Advanced ExtendSim Training here.

There is a hard maximum limit of 6 students per class so register early.

Prerequisites and Certification Option

Essential ExtendSim Training, or, on instructor approval, a comparable proficiency is required. It will also be beneficial to be comfortable with the database concept and be familiar with programming concepts and terminology (C++ recommended).

Rate-Based Modeling

Rate-Based ModelingLearn how to use the discrete rate (rate-based) capabilities of the Rate module in ExtendSim Pro. Discrete rate modeling simulates rates of flow that change when events occur. This is the most common, and most efficient, method of modeling high-speed, high-volume systems such as packaging lines, mining operations, the manufacturing of powders and fluids, chemical processes, and so forth.

This one-and-a-half day course explores each block in the Rate library and presents modeling techniques such as:

Sources, storage, and units

Defining rates and critical constraints

Methods for merging and diverging flow

Control logic, including goals, hysteresis, shifts, and changeovers

Mixing flow and items, such as for filling and palletizing operations

Prerequisites

Completion of the Essential ExtendSim Training, or, on instructor approval, a comparable proficiency is absolutely necessary before taking this course.

Onsite ExtendSim Training

On-Site Training Courses

If you anticipate sending 3 or more employees to a public training course, you may want to consider on-site training. Any ExtendSim Public Training course may be scheduled at your convenience and in your facilities (anywhere in the world) as a privately held on-site training. We will send one of our authorized expert instructors to your site (with student laptops) for an intensive, hands-on, training.

With on-site courses, there is the option to tailor the training to your environment and situation-specific needs. It's like inviting both a trainer and modeling coach to work with your team!

Contact Imagine That Inc. for a quote and to check date availability for your on-site training. (When scheduling on-site training, please be aware of our Training Cancellation Policy.)
