    What's New



    Process Simulator 2019 SP1

    We are excited to announce the release of our first Service Pack to our new, redesigned Process Simulator 2019. This version of Process Simulator currently supports both 32- and 64-bit editions of Microsoft Visio 2016. As with our initial release, SP1 is available for customers in US and Canada only but will be available for everyone later this year.

    What’s New?

    Activity Multi-Entity Table
    We have added in the functionality of Multi Entities in to Process Simulator 2019. This functionality 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


    What's New in Process Simulator 2019?

    This release is a new, redesigned application that supports both 32- and 64-bit editions of Microsoft Visio 2016. It is initially available for customers in US and Canada only but will be available for everyone later this year.

    Dockable Windows

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

    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 (and not just unique copies of the submodel).

    Global Elements Across Pages

    In support of the referenced submodels, all model elements (e.g. activities, resources, variables, attributes, macros, etc.) will be globally accessible across pages (no more duplicating model elements on each page). This also allows you to utilize multiple pages to build your model without the use of the submodel construct.

    Read/Write Data to Text Files

    Write out data from your model to a text or CSV file for model troubleshooting or verification. You can also use it to log custom statistics for import and analysis in Excel or another data analysis tool.

    Find and Replace

    Process Simulator now has its own find and replace capability, separate from Visio, and 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.

    Upgrade Existing Models

    You can convert existing models to its new format! This is done by simply clicking the Convert button in the Process Simulator 2019 ribbon. During this process a backup of your original model is automatically saved for you (with a .psbkp extension). However, it is highly recommended that you save a copy of your original models prior to taking them through the upgrade process.



    Microsoft Office/Visio 64-bit Support

    Process Simulator now supports both 32- and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Visio 2016.
