Function comparison of Process Simulator Editions
Process Simulator is available in two editions.
Process Simulator Professional vs. Process Simulator Free
The free edition of Process Simulator is designed for testing purposes and limited to 30 days. With Process Simulator Free, you can build simple models and view the results in the Output Viewer. The Free Edition is limited in terms of features for professional use such as model logic and details, IntelliSense functionality, use of Excel files, hierarchical modeling, group work, Six Sigma functionality, result analysis, …
The Professional Edition especially makes your daily work easier and helps you to save many hours of working time. Process Simulator Professional provides you with the full functionality and allows you to generically create large models.
With Process Simulator Professional your company is provided with an effective simulation tool. With the help of the Output Viewer, Microsoft Excel or Minitab you can easily analyze the simulation results. Among other things, it accelerates and improves the results of your continuous improvement programs and your Lean-Six-Sigma initiatives.
Plug-in for Microsoft Visio
Work in the familiar and easy-to-use Microsoft Visio environment.
ProModel Simulation Engine
Use the power of the ProModel simulation engine to complete your simulation studies.
Using Models in ProModel and MedModel
Models created in Process Simulator can be opened and expanded in ProModel or MedModel.
Compare Multiple Scenarios in the Output Viewer
Allows you to compare and analyze the simulation results of different scenarios from the same model or different models.
The Visio diagrams are graphically animated during the simulation and display the progress and current state of the simulated flows over time.
Convert existing Visio diagrams
Convert existing Microsoft Visio diagrams to simulation models.

Using the Strengths of data graphics in Visio
Visualize the simulation results directly in the shapes of your modeled processes within the Visio drawing.
Reading Arrivals from Excel
Read in your arrivals from Microsoft Excel.
2-dimensional arrays (tables)
Large amounts of data can be used in an Excel spreadsheet-like structure (matrix) in your models.
Import/Export of data from/to Excel
Allows to accept the values from an Excel spreadsheet at the start of a simulation and to write at the end of a simulation.
Extended Logic Wizard
Use advanced statements and functions in the logic wizard in model logic.
Subroutines with transfer parameters and return values
A subroutine can be started with transfer parameters and returns a calculated return value.
Using expressions in the property fields
Use a subroutine with a return value in a property field instead of a numeric value.
Hands-free writing of logic code
In another window, the logic code can be written without the use of the logic wizard.
Intellisense for fast modeling
Start writing your model code and Intellisense completes it automatically.
Clear selection from the options of your command words.
Flexible destination selection in Routings
Use Flexible Routing to identify alternative targets in the model and not to have to draw them graphically.
