Tutorial 4 - Experimenter / Optimizer

Tutorial 4 - Experimenter / Optimizer

This tutorial introduces the Experimenter and Optimizer found in FlexSim. These tools each help to answer the "what-if" questions for a model:

  • What if the milling station were placed differently?
  • What if more people were hired for a given shift?
  • What if the order of these processes was changed?

The Experimenter allows you to try many different versions of your model and evaluate the performance of each one. Alternatively, the Optimizer can automatically search through many different versions of your model, looking for the best one. They are both very powerful tools that enable you to learn about and improve your system.
