    Connect Simio to a C# App

    Hello Nicolas, Thanks for the info. I had another doubt. What is the context of these functions? How would I go about actually running the experiment? I cannot find anything referencing SimioProjectFactory in the API. Would it be possible to see a simple script that runs one of the example simio models as if you opened up the program and hit run? Thanks so much! Ravi

    Connect Simio to a C# App

    Hello, Here is my task. What I am trying to do is run the simio simulation from the API. In other words, I want to automatically run the simio simulation, either by using the SIMIO API in C# or so on. Any idea how I can do this? Please let me know if you want more information so I can clarify further. Thanks.
  3. Hello all, I am trying this new feature on SIMIO and any help is appreciated. Now, I have a CAD drawing of my plant layout. I want to know if I can import the CAD drawing into SIMIO to automatically develop a model. Now, I have already done this with the excel spreadsheet where I am able to import the database to create the model. I want to know if a similar step is possible with the CAD drawing. Thanks, Ravi

    Running Experiments from the API

    As I had told you before, I am now able to import the excel spreadsheet and run the model on Simio. My question is if you can possibly build a C# command in Simio's API that can automatically run the model once the spreadsheet is created . To elaborate, what I want to do is run a C# command that will automatically import the database and simulate the model in Simio while only leaving the Simio window open in the desktop. So, I wouldn't have to manually import the model in Simio and simulate the model manually. Also, if this is possible, can I run another C# sharp command to automatically export the results to a spreadsheet? Or, is there a way where I can copy a file into ProgramFiles(x86)\SImio folder and avoid the API so that I can automatically run and export the files to a local file? I am novice to SImio and programming so an any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Import Objects From Spreadsheet

    Thanks Willem, Also I had a few other doubts that I was hoping you could clarify. Firstly, in Simio, under select add-in, I do not have the "Load Objects and Links from an external spreadsheet" option. All I have is the "Place Source, Server, Sink" option. Secondly, I am not able to set the output directory file path on Visual Studio. Can you help me out with that as well? Also, can you tell me which one is the assembly file for Simio? is it the .exe file? Guys, any help would be appreciated as I am completely new to this. Thanks.

    Import Objects From Spreadsheet

    Hey Guys, Couple of questions- 1. Which one is the Simio Assembly file that I have to copy? Is it the .exe file? 2. In the excel file, would I be able to change the properties to each workstation like exponential distribution, normal distribution, etc.? Thanks

    Import Objects From Spreadsheet

    Hey Glen, A couple of questions. They might be simple but I am completely new to this and I want to get it right 1. You say "Right-click the assembly and select properties. Then choose to "unblock" button and press apply". Can you tell me where in Simio is the assembly option? 2. Also, can we add properties like type of distribution for each work station (eg: exponential, uniform, etc.) in the excel file? If we can, would that be automatically reflected in simio when we automatically generate the model? 3. Can you give the C# code for this automatic model generation from excel to simio procedure? Thanks
  9. Okay guys, I need some help. I am completely new to Simio and I migrated from Visio. I have just started playing around with Simio. But, I am building relatively large models and it takes some time to finish. Now, what I need to know is if there is a way to automatically generate a model in simio by linking it to an excel database? I am building production flow models to look at bottlenecks and so forth. So, I constantly update my database in excel. Also, if there is, can you tell me how I can do it? Would I need to code it in the Simio API? I installed Visual studio 2013 but I don't know how to connect it to Simio. I am completely new to this and any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
