 Change Log:


  • Code snippets that can be inserted in models from the toolbar ribbon
  • Updated examples to demonstrate the interactive model features
  • Bug fixes

v 1.9.0

  • Double clicking on an error jumps to that line in the source editor
  • Code completion documentation – ctrl+space within the source editor shows available elements and attributes and documents their usage. First pass. Known issues around duplication of tags, but we thought this was better than no tags at all 🙂
  • New visual result output options: generatePositionData (true|false) and positionDataFilename (file name and path) attributes for Simulation-Execute-Visual element. This returns all card positions for each simulation interval.

v 1.8.2

  • New charts with more interactive features and better clarity of axis labeling.
  • New Interactive experiment window to control parameter values and see impact on cost, time and delivery date.
  • Some validation defects found where 0% wasn’t a valid percentage for skipPercentages. It is, it allows the interactive experiments to be zero.
