This sprint we did some minor enhancements and bug fixes, plus a great deal of work in two large areas which will require additional work before they are fully usable.
View Step Parameters in Processes
If you hover the mouse over any step, a pop-up will show all parameters that do not have their default values. This, in combination with the Process Description, Step Name, and Step Description, makes it much easier to quickly understand what a process is doing and how it works.
Confidence Level and Batch Means
The confidence level is used to calculate confidence interval half-width statistics for result averages across replications or batches.
Copy and Paste
The ability to Copy and Paste has been added to almost every construct. More related enhancements such as being able to select multiple objects before copying are still in process.
An application programming interface (API) is an interface implemented by a software program to enable interaction with other software. Simio has had a small and growing API for quite a while. We have just started on a major project to expand and complete this interface. It is still incomplete and only lightly documented, but adventuresome souls can get a sneak peek at the evolving API. When complete this will add significant capabilities for interfacing Simio to other programs for data exchange, optimization, Simio controlling or being controlled by another program, and lots more.
