Process Analytics Using ProModel Workstation Simulator (PWS)

PWS is an Excel interface to ProModel that provides a simple way of setting up and running basic simulation experiments. It also includes a workbook with five easy exercises for learning how to analyze, predict and improve process performance.

  • PWS is included at no additional cost with the purchase of the ProModel Professor or Lab Package.

  • PWS is also included at no additional cost with the renewal of maintenance/support on a Professor Package or the upgrade of a Lab Package.
  • ProModel Student Package now includes PWS WorkBook with Exercise for $35. The Student Package can be download from ProModel Online Store www.promodel.com/store

  • PWS without ProModel is available to professors at no cost. (for more information contact Sandra Petty, Academic Coordinator  spetty@promodel.com)

ProModel is now providing students with an even easier entry to simulation with a unique, self-guided, hands-on experience.  As the semester starts make sure to get your professor, lab or student packages today!

  • Suitable for an undergraduate or MBA course in Operations Management as well as an introductory IE course on systems.
  • Requires only Excel and professor lab package or student package of ProModel. Student package can be downloaded from www.promodel.com/store
  • Files used for the exercise are
    • PWS Workbook (Word file) – Contains the instructions and exercise information.
    • ProModel Workstation Simulator (Excel file) – The spreadsheet for defining models, running simulations and viewing output results.
    • Workstation Model Master (ProModel file) – The ProModel template used in creating models.
    • PWS Graphic Library (ProModel Graphic file) – Contains the graphics used in the simulation models.
  • All exercises are self-guided and self-paced.
  • Takes about 2 hours to complete all 5 exercises and answer all questions.
  • Solutions are provided to instructors.
  • Exercises cover all the fundamentals of system dynamics.
    • Impact of interdependencies and variation on system performance
    • Bottleneck analysis
    • Buffer sizing
    • Process improvement using Lean and Theory of Constraints
  • Exercises begin very elementary with canned experiments and gradually get more advanced with students running their own experiments.
  • Environment is controlled and catches input errors.
  • Instructors can skip, modify or add additional exercises.
  • Students get exposed to simulation and learn how to
    • Run independent replications
    • Interpret confidence intervals
    • Use a warm-up period
    • Conduct scenario comparisons
  • Students get to test their own intuition against the analytical capability of the simulator.
