As ProModel’s new Process Simulator Product Development Manager, I’m really excited to bring you my first blog post in this position.

We launched Process Simulator 2019, our Microsoft® Visio ® plug-in, earlier this year which now supports both 64 and 32 bit Visio 2016.  We have added many other great features to this redesigned product. Check out the highlights below and get the full details on the What’s New page.

Visio 2016 64 and 32-bit support

Dockable Windows – We have redesigned all element property windows and tables and made them dockable within the Visio application work-space. This allows you to keep them open and out of the way so your diagram view space will be clear for quicker modeling changes.

Find & Replace – Process Simulator now has its own find and replace capability, separate from Visio, which will search across its elements and objects only. It even automatically brings the shape into view and opens the associated property or field where the searched text is found.

Model Compile – When you run your model, it is checked for errors prior to simulation. In this release, you are presented with a list of all errors, which allows you to quickly navigate to and resolve the issues.

Referenced Hierarchical Models – Submodels now have the ability to be referenced in addition to their current capability of unique instances. This means that activities linking to the same submodel at different points in your diagram will send their entities to that exact submodel (not just unique copies of the submodel).

Activity Multi-Entity Table – We have added Multi-Entity functionality. This allows you to convert your existing models that use multi entity, and create new ones as well, without having to code the functionality using logic. In Shape Properties you can select Multi Entity and then Define.

In this initial release for our US and Canadian customers with current Maintenance and Support, you can get the download in the Solutions Café.  You can also access the Process Simulator 2019 What’s New webinar recording from the solutions cafe.  If you are not a current customer, please contact your Account Manager for details.

Process Simulator 2019 will be available to everyone later this year.  Please let me know if you have any feedback by leaving a comment below or contacting me directly. Thanks!  anelson@promodel.com
