The primary purpose of Congestion Modeling Planning Software (CMPS) will be to determine if sufficient capacity is available (in terms of equipment) to satisfy the stated demand. The user can vary the following operating parameters to conduct “What-If” analysis:
The user can run Congestion Modeling Planning Software with the specified parameters and view the results. All output time units in this system are in minutes. The results are divided into four (4) categories:
Congestion Modeling Planning Software can be used as often as will be needed, based on the business/operating environment. This will allow the analyst to evaluate future business and operating scenarios to optimize the utilization and throughput of the conveyance processes.
CMPS will be a very powerful analysis tool. However, it will be important to note, that the analyst must have a thorough understanding of both the processes being analyzed and the statistics
INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS AND PROCEDURES
The minimum requirements/recommendations for running the Arena software are as follows:
Note: The running and animation of Arena and some large simulation models can be calculation-intensive, so a faster processor with additional memory may result in significantly improved performance. In addition, a large monitor and a screen resolution of at least 1024 x 768 is recommended for improved animation viewing
Included with this manual is a CD containing the required files to run CMPS. Load the CD into the CD drive. If it does not start, browse to the “autorun.exe” file on the CD and double-click the file to start the installation. An autorun program should start and the following screen will appear. The installation program will examine your system and determine if there are any required system updates that need to be installed and installs them.
