1 Welcome What is Arena

1 Welcome What is Arena software? Arena ® software allows you to bring the power of modeling and simulation to your business. It is designed for analyzing the impact of changes involving significant and complex redesigns associated with supply chain, manufacturing, processes, logistics, distribution and warehousing, and service systems. Arena software provides the maximum flexibility and breadth of application coverage to model any desired level of detail and complexity. Typical scenarios include: • detailed analysis of any type of manufacturing system, including materialhandling components • analysis of complex customer service and customer management systems • analysis of global supply chains that include warehousing, transportation, and logistics systems • predicting system performance based on key metrics such as costs, throughput, cycle times, and utilizations • identifying process bottlenecks such as queue build ups and over-utilization of resources • planning staff, equipment, or material requirements Rockwell Automation offers a full suite of products to provide enterprise-wide simulation, optimization, and 3D model animation. Intended audience Arena software is designed for business consultants, business analysts, and industrial or system engineers. It can be widely deployed as a desktop tool and can serve as a natural extension to those who use various flowcharting packages such as Visio ® to help demonstrate, predict, and measure system strategies. Arena offers several editions of the software, ranging from the Arena Standard Edition up to the Professional Edition, which isthe ultimate in functionality and flexibility. All versions of the software build upon basic concepts familiar to users of the Microsoft ® Windows ® operating system and applications. A familiarity with the concepts and terms used in simulation is also helpful. 1

GETTING STARTED WITH ARENA Your Arena license Your software purchase of any commercial or academic edition includes a license that identifies the features that will be accessible for your use when your software is activated and run. Arena Standard and Professional Edition (which also encompasses Academic licensing) software include module panels and templates that allow you to create simulations of more complex systems requiring material handling, advanced modeling concepts or models requiring more detailed analysis and flexibility. New to Arena is Arena Visual Designer, the visualization application inside Arena for quickly and easily designing dashboards for advanced business graphic reporting and 3D animation in customizable display windows. Your software license will determine which features of Arena Visual Designer will be available to enhance your model’s visualization. All licenses include the ability to enhance models with 3D animation in addition to dashboards. Consult your Rockwell Automation sales representative or global representative to discuss configuration options that are best suited to your needs. Where can I go for help? Our commitment to your success starts with the suite of learning aids and assistance we provide for Arena. Whether you’re new to simulation or a seasoned veteran putting a new tool to use, you’ll quickly feel at home with the Arena software. Refer to the user’s guides This Getting Started with Arena manual covers the product basics with an easy, “click-by-click” tutorial for modeling and analyzing a discrete process. Getting Started with Arena is a manual for all editions of the software. As such, chapters that are not applicable to a particular edition will be marked with a notation. The set also has a separate Variables Guide reference that provides complete descriptions of Arena variables found in the Arena product templates. Depending upon the software license, other user manuals may be included that are specific to different software and template components. DOCUMENT CONVENTIONS Throughout the guides, a number of style conventions are used to help identify material. New terms and concepts may be emphasized by use of italics or bold; file menu paths are in bold with a (>) separating the entries (for example, go to Help > 2
