Learn how to use the discrete rate (rate-based) capabilities of ExtendSim Pro.
Discrete rate modeling simulates rates of flow that change when events occur. This is the most common, and most efficient, method of modeling high-speed, high-volume systems such as packaging lines, mining operations, the manufacturing of powders and fluids, chemical processes, and so forth.
This one-and-a-half day course explores each block in the Rate module and presents modeling techniques such as:
Sources, storage, and units:
Defining rates and critical constraints:
Methods for merging and diverging flow:
Control logic, including goals, hysteresis, shifts, and changeovers:
Mixing flow and items, such as for filling and palletizing operations
