About Me












  1. Dave recommends going back to the source, which is definitely going to be the easier option. However, if you really want to get at the embedded models, open the Simio project file (my_awesome_model.spfx) like a zip using 7-zip or some other archive managing tool. In the Simio Project file, there is a "\Data\Geometry\" folder. You will find all of the custom (user added) symbols here. They are in S3D format. As I have never had to use these directly, I never felt a need to find what tool can open those. As for the Simio ones, they are all ssfx files (another format I haven't
  2. I have been running very large experiments that take a few days to run. Murphy's law seems to interfere through either power outages or automatic updates which can cost me a couple of days of computer time. So I found some code using autohotkey and modified it to work great with SIMIO. autohotkey is a free download and easy to use. The below code runs a loop which hits {control S} on the SIMIO window if it is open every 10 minutes. Persistent ;run a loop 100 times saving every ten minutes if your SIMIO file is open. loop, 100 { ;save file every 10 minutes MsgBox, Iteration
  3. We have seen a number of issues of nodes not displaying by users running Simio on a MAC using Parallels or VM Fusion. Since we do not support running Simio on any virtual OS, we have not looked into this issue. Given this, one of our users has found a way around this issue. Here are the steps to follow: Simio 6 and higher: 1) From Simio, select File....Settings. 2) Change Graphics Type from "DirectX" to "OpenGL" 3) Press OK and close Simio. 4) Reopen Simio If this does not work, we suggest: 1) From Simio, select File....Settings. 2) Change Graphics T
  4. Hi, I am getting a file corrupted message when trying to open the model. Is there something I need to run or compile beforehand ? I am using version 5. Mark
  5. That's not quite true. I removed the "ModelEntity" from the component and used the one from the calling project. The component didn't find the reference. Ah, maybe something has changed, which is why I have not seen this bug yet. I also completely forgot about the internal references we can now read. Have you tried comparing the object references to see what is up? If you right click on the model (that uses the entity) and click on "Object References", you will see the reference id. If you then use winRar or 7-Zip you can open the Simio project file and look at the xml. Find
  6. We just noticed this. We will fix this in a future build. As a work around, open the Database Binding Screen. Once opened, specify "SQL Server" as the database type and then select the "Custom connection string" option. Once this option is checked, select "ODBC". Now you should be able to enter a custom connect string to your MySql database.
  7. I cant open your model, because it is in Academic version. So this may not solve your problem, but it is good to be avare of this. If you transfer entity into station using transfer step you have to use EndTransfer step in a process which is triggered by event station.entered. Simply create this process set triggering event as station.entered and add EndTransfer step.
  8. The next three-day Standard Simio Training class, open to the public, will be held on February 6-8, 2013. The classes will be in downtown San Diego, CA, convenient to airport, hotel accommodation and area attractions. The fee for the class is $1,485 per attendee. More information on Simio training and class registration: http://mosimtec.com/services/training/ Contact me if you have any questions. Also look out for details on a Simio Standard Training class scheduled for March 2013 in McLean, VA. Best, Martin
  9. Many times, you are not sure if the port is open between the Simio GUI (client) and the Simio Network License Server. The program in the attached zip will allow you to test whether the port is open. Just unzip the CheckPort.exe from the attached zip file. Then run the program and enter the host and port. If you get a Socket Exception, you cannot connect to the server / port. If you get a message saying "Socket connect to...", the port is open. CheckPort.zip
  10. If you do this regularly, it would be worth making your own submodel that uses a node and addon processes to send to different exit nodes. You could then define parameters. I would make one for you, but due to licensing restriction, I doubt you could open it.
  11. The Extended Flow Library discussed in this thread is now obsolete. Most of its objects are now integrated into the Simio Flow Library or included in the new Candidate Library: http://www.simio.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=1740 The built-in Flow library includes very powerful features and capability, but is currently limited in scope to just a few basic objects. While we are enhancing that built-in library based on your feedback, we have provided an extended set of flow-related objects. This library includes objects such as Solidifier, Liquefier, Filler, Extractor and St
  12. Modeling multiple cranes on a common (shared) runway is hard to do well. Still harder when you take into account acceleration, crane blocking, and good 3D animation. If you have encountered this problem, here is a solution. For standard bridge crane movement, we recommend the simpler Crane object in the Extras library. But if you need the underhung cranes with cabs moving between bays, read on... The Simio Crane Library is a collection of objects designed for modeling multiple cranes operating simultaneously in a bay. The library is provided as an example of complex material handling
  13. Hi dsturrock, I see you changed the topic's title, I must admit it wasn't really the best one, sorry about that. About Simio's next release, can you name some new features that will mark the difference between its previous versions? About the API what new features will be available? Can that new version of Simio manipulate the External window in Definitions? About the security of Simio's business model that can be compromised by the addition of certain features, can you name some that would put Simio at risk? The only one I can see at the moment is that a full model made by the
  14. Here are some quick instructions: 1) You will need to have Microsoft Excel on your computer. 2) Download the "ImportsObjectsAndLinks.xlsx" and populate it with your model. 3) Extract "ImportObjectsAndLinksFromSpreadsheetAddIn.dll" from the "ImportObjectsAndLinksFromSpreadsheetAddInDLL_V5.zip" into a temp folder (e.g. c:\temp). 4) Right-click the assembly and select properties. Then choose to "unblock" button and press apply. (only needed for Windows 7 and later). 5) Copy "ImportObjectsAndLinksFromSpreadsheetAddIn.dll" into "C:\Users\\Documents\SimioUserExtensions".
  15. Simio incorporates many innovative features to take best advantage of available memory and processor speed. Simio does not have any artificial limits, but at some point you might start running into limits that come from your hardware and operating system (OS). Here are some ideas to consider. Take full advantage of Simio's multi-processor support. First of all, it is important to understand that our multi-processor support applies to running multiple replications during experimentation. Note also that upgrading to Team Edition allows distributed experimentation across multiple comput
  16. In protection option #1 you would click on each individual object and then use the "Protect" button shown in your screen shot. Once an object is protected in that fashion, then no one else can clone or open that object and so they are unable to see how it was made. But they can still place objects in their model and use them as intended.
  17. I'm not sure if we have quite what you want, but here are a few approaches that may help: 1) You can use existing Simio features to protect each object in your library so that no one can open them. This protects your IP (design) but does not limit use. 2) You can build a model with the library and then detach the library. Others can then use the model, but have no access to the libary to extend the model. 3) You can use a custom step in your protected object(s) that implements some sort of protection algorithm. The simplest (and easiest to defeat) might be a simple password. Or
  18. This works with an important caveat: you cannot take advantage of any VCS merge functionality (or any other functionality that modifies the content of the source file). This is because each .simproj file (which is essentially an xml file plus resource files, I believe) has a hash associated with it. This hash is checked on load, and if the xml has been modified outside of Simio the file will not load. We had wanted to use Tortoise SVN to help manage development of models and custom objects; however this behavior limits what we can do as we cannot branch and merge projects. As an example, I
  19. Simio LLC is one of the rare places where you can work on the cutting edge of software technology and get to see the immediate results of your efforts. This is your chance to "get in on the ground floor" of a company that is changing the simulation market and is now taking off - adding customers and products. We are looking for bright, high energy, engaging people to help us design, develop, market, and deliver our simulation and scheduling software products to customers across the globe. We don't always have positions available, but we are steadily growing and we are often looking to hi
  20. In sprint 76 (due out in a few days), when you transfer to a specific process, if it is in a category that is closed, it will automatically open. Thens for reporting this.
  21. I'm in Sprint 75, and they appear to open on one click. Isn't this better than 2 clicks? If I recall correctly, Sprint 73 had a few UI bugs. I believe it was the sprint that accidentally removed the scrolling in process view.
  22. Hello, I've noticed that on Sprint 73 the Category headers don't open automatically when you double-click the Add On process trigger on the Facility window. Should'nt it be preferable to keep this feature on? It saves a lot of time when searching across the process windows. J. Beltran
  23. Is there a way to open (import) two or more Models into a new Model (for example I will do a queuing with check-in counter in airport terminal, and use this model multiple times into different projects), the idea is instead of creating on big model, to create small models and combine them to create final model, and also those small models will be easy to use an modify for future projects. Thanks in advance for your help Arben
  24. I think this has something to do with your regional settings in Windows and Excel. In Europe CSV file is a file separated with semicolons and text encapsulated by "", but in USA it is separated by commas. If you have correct settings Excel will open CSV properly. Otherwise you should use import from text feature in Excel or easier Text to column feature. I would recommend that SIMIO should identify regional settings and create CSV files according the computer settings. Think that changing separators in a code is not that hard to implement.
  25. If you open up the test.csv file in a general text editor, then yes, you will see the commas in between (as it is a comma separated variables file). However, if you open it in Microsoft Excel, you will see that Excel puts those values into different columns.
