Advanced Simulation Capabilities
This package offers advanced technology that includes yet goes beyond the typical continuous or discrete event modeling capabilities of other simulation applications. It adds:
Discrete Rate Module -- to simulate systems that involve tanks, levels, and valves, plus modeling of the storage and rate-based movement of system components.
Reliability Block Diagramming (RBD) tool that forms a powerful synergy between the process simulation power of ExtendSim and detailed reliability analysis offered by reliability block diagramming. The Reliability module can be used as either a standalone RBD tool or in conjunction with ExtendSim simulation capabilities.
The Excel Add-In for ExtendSim databases allows you to completely specify a new ExtendSim database in Excel, including parent/child relationships, cell randomization, named distributions, and more. Then export the database for use in ExtendSim models.
Stat::Fit® (from Geer Mountain) to determine which distributions, if any, offer a good fit for the underlying data
Connectivity with Oracle — import data from or export data to an Oracle database
Plus, all the features and capabilities of ExtendSim DE and ExtendSim CP.

Maintenance and Support Plan
Your purchase of ExtendSim Pro includes a Maintenance and Support Plan (MSP). Your first year's payment of $899 is included in your purchase!
Installing & Activating an ExtendSim Pro Individual License
Once you’ve completed your purchase, your invoice will contain:
Links to download:
ExtendSim Pro installer for an Individual License
Frequently Asked Questions for the installation process
A PIN with your Activation Key
If you’ve already been using the Trial version of ExtendSim Pro, simply enter the invoice's Activation Key in the activation dialog when you launch ExtendSim. All models and blocks you created during the Trial period will be maintained in the activated license.
If you have not installed the Trial version of ExtendSim Pro, download the ExtendSim installer from the link on your invoice. Launch the installer file by double-clicking it. Then use its automated software installer following the on-screen instructions to install ExtendSim.
Be sure to follow the comprehensive installation instructions in the Installing & Activating • Individual Licenses document. If you encounter issues while installing, see "Issues When Installing, Launching, or Opening ExtendSim Files" in the document Frequently Asked Questions • Individual Licenses.
Maintenance and Support Plan
The first year of the annual Maintenance and Support Plan (MSP) is included with your purchase of ExtendSim Pro. That's an $899 value!
As long as the MSP is kept current, you can:
Get help with installation issues, basic usage questions, and troubleshooting of the ExtendSim application.
Download free ExtendSim minor release updates.
Download free ExtendSim major release upgrades.
Move your ExtendSim license from one device to another (if allowed by the EULA).
Obtain replacement or updated Activation Keys.
Experience, evaluate, and influence future products and features.
For the benefits to continue in subsequent years, the MSP must be renewed by the anniversary of ExtendSim Pro 10 license activation or other pre-determined date.
Please visit Maintenance & Support Plan on the ExtendSim site for complete details.
Add Event Cycles
Event Cycles (also known as failure modes) describe a resource's availability behavior over time. To accurately model resource and system availability in ExtendSim Pro, you statistically define Reliability Event Cycles (RECs) to represent failures, repairs, shifts, and maintenance events.
RECs are stored in an internal RBD database that uses the reliability distributions to control how components (resources) move between their up and down states over time. Since they are stored in database tables, importing event cycles that have been defined in an external data source is also supported. This means the number of event cycles needed to support an RBD scale up easily.
By default ExtendSim Pro provides the ability to define up to 100 Event Cycles. As your business grows and your model requires more event cycles, you can purchase additional REC's for your ExtendSim Pro product.
Note: adding Event Cycles does not affect your annual Maintenance & Support Plan renewal fee. This is a flat fee for ExtendSim 10.
