The new ProcessModel version 5.6.5 update delivers improved task automations, enhanced model objects, and bug fixes. The new version concentrates on automation and ‘one-click’ model updates. ProcessModel can open a model, import data, simulate, and download the results to Excel. These new features allow enhanced modeling capabilities, and allow decision makers to have a ‘one-click’ experience to receive process improvement recommendations.

New Capabilities

Importing model data from external sources includes error checking and safety features, ensuring the integrity and reliability of models. Instant reports provide details of the import or reasons for failure.

You can add variables, attributes, and scenario parameters during an import. This means action logic can be written to match the names of activities and then imported. Action logic using names to match your activity nomenclature is so much easier to understand. This is especially important if the logic was written by someone else (which is what happens when you use a model object).

The variable data can export up to 1,000,000 data points (the limit of excel rows) and can now be selectively exported.

Two hundred model objects received improvements in this build. Here are some of the capabilities model objects enhance:

  • Entire model resource assignment from a single page. You can assign resources from multiple shifts, with different skill levels, each having unique work priorities.

Importing data – eliminated problems with background saves during data imports. As soon as a ProcessModel file was exported, some networks automatically try to save this file. While the file was saving, ProcessModel would attempt to update the file in use.

ProcessModel now communicates with all files before export or import to ensure the file availability. This fix also eliminated lockups of ProcessModel and Excel during importing.

Search and replace (SR) — in previous versions SR would change the graphic, but not change the name in the dialog connected to the graphic. Because the dialog would not change, every graphic needed to be touched multiple times to complete the update of names. Now SR updates both the graphic and the dialog. SR allows quick and seamless integration of multi-graphic model objects.
