Version 2.0 of isee NetSim™ and isee NetSim Server includes support for additional
features and functionality that will extend your ability to easily publish and share
iThink and STELLA models on the web. Take advantage of the following:
New more powerful simulation engine (STEAM) — The new STEAM engine will run models created in iThink or STELLA v10.0.1 or greater. This new more powerful and flexible engine provides support for the following additional features:
- Multi-dimensional arrays
- Queue and Oven stock types
- All Conveyor features including inflow limits, capacity constraints, multiple leakage flows, exponential leakage and leak integers option.
- All builtin functions available in iThink and STELLA 10.0.1 or greater
Note: Models created in earlier versions can still be published to the web and will run using the old simulation engine.
Export Now button — Models published to the web with isee NetSim now support Export Now menu buttons. Users can easily export simulation data from a single run by clicking on a button in your published model and pasting the data into an Excel spreadsheet or csv file.
Dynamic data export — The isee NetSim Wizard now includes an option to collect all simulation run data for a published model. Create a dynamic export link in your model and use your own custom web service program to collect the data.
Tool tip enhancements — Data values on graphs now appear in tool tips as you hover over the graph.
Performance improvements — We've improved the performance and stability of isee NetSim Server, especially with multiple user interactions.
Password reset — isee NetSim Server now supports an option for users who forget their password to safely reset it via an email link.
Divide by zero support — We've improved isee NetSim Server's handling of unexpected inputs/outputs such as NaN and Infinity.
Improved exception handling — Support for email monitoring and real time logging allows administrators and isee NetSim support staff to better monitor overall stability and health of isee NetSim Server.
New installer — An improved and easy-to-use isee NetSim Server installer automatically configures IIS 7 and provides tools and step-by-step instructions for upgrading existing installations.
