Default FlexSIM VS. Arena

hi

Has anybody got enough experience with FlexSim and Arena to offer pros vs cons analysis?
Could somebody address specifically FlexSim's warehouse modeling capability?

Thank you!

Gali, unfortunately I have little experience with Arena. I can however point out a significant advantage of Flexsim over Arena. Flexsim models are directly build in 3D, allowing for correct layouts and associated distances. This will allow for faster modeling and more accurate modeling of warehouse processes.

Default Hi. Gali. If you compare with Arena not Arena HC...

I have not any information Arena HC.
But comparing with Arena, Arena has poor Input Data Analyzer than flexim.
It has Input Data Analyzer like ExperFit but it is not complete ExperFit but only abstracted ExperFit.

And it looks like to have a visual characteristic feature recently but it is a very difficult thing to use. It needs very hard working.

In arena, the visual is not synchronized with making the model with the logic.
Making the logic and the visual is another working without same time.

They are easily done only by drag and drop the objects in Flexsim.

Default You can find 'experfit' in internet search.

It is a data fitting tool for DISTRIBUTION-FITTING SOFTWARE
ExpertFit will automatically and accurately determine which probability distribution best represents your data set, and typically will do so in less than a second. ExpertFit has 40 distributions, 30 high-quality graphical plots, 4 technically correct goodness-of-fit tests, sample sizes of 100,000, interactive histograms, extensive support for simulation modeling, a distribution viewer, batch mode, comprehensive context-sensitive help, and a User’s Guide with 8 complete examples.

Don’t be mislead by other distribution-fitting packages that have a small fraction of ExpertFit’s features, inferior distribution-selection algorithms, statistically invalid goodness-of-fit tests, and limited graphics and documentation.
