GETTING STARTED WITH ARENA Transfer the drawing to Arena When you’re ready to simulate your process, it’s a simple matter of selecting the Simulate Drawing item from the Simulate menu. This tool opens Arena and translates your Visio process map into an Arena simulation model. When the process is complete, you have an Arena model containing modules from the Basic Process panel that mirror the shapes you used from the Visio Process Simulation stencil, including the properties and connections you specified in Visio. In Arena, you can set the simulation run length on the Run > Setup page. If you do not define the run length, you can stop the simulation at any time by clicking the Pause button and then the End button. To run the simulation, click Arena’s Go button. Your entities will animate the flowchart as the simulation proceeds, just as if you had created the model directly in Arena. Because the process is being simulated in Arena with the standard Basic Process modules, you have all of Arena’s capabilities at your disposal, including reports on all aspects of your process from the Reports panel selections. After you have simulated your process, you can save the Arena model (.doe) file to continue work in Arena, or you can close it to return to Visio for continued modifications. Because the transfer of the Visio drawing is from Visio to Arena (but not vice versa from Arena to Visio), it’s usually best to return to Visio. However, you might want to save the Arena model in case you want to review the simulation or results as you’re refining the Visio process map. Simulate other Visio drawings In addition to simulating process maps using the Process Simulation add-in, you can also simulate process maps created using other Visio stencils. Arena provides a shape map editor to define the relationship between the shapes in the Visio stencils and the modules in Arena’s Basic Process panel. Arena’s online help describes how to use this feature, which is accessed by opening the Tools > Options menu and clicking on the Visio Options tab. 180

C • USING VISIO AND ARENA Use Visio and Arena in your organization The combination of Visio and Arena can widen and deepen the reach of process improvement in your organization. You can exploit the accessibility of Visio to ease the transition from drawing pictures to mapping processes. All types of process constituents—from those who govern the business to the staff who execute the process—can directly influence the definition of how the process works now and what future perations will provide the most dramatic improvements. Distribute the Process Simulation add-in The Process Simulation add-in is automatically installed with Arena and is available to all Visio users, with no additional fees or licenses required. You can distribute the add-in throughout your organization so that everyone who has an interest in the process definition can access it directly through Visio. With this approach, process maps can be created and shared throughout the organization on any desktop with a Visio license. When simulation and animation are needed to visualize and analyze the behavior of the process, the drawings can be transferred to systems with the Arena software. By using the Process Simulation template and checking the process maps as they’re created, you can be confident that taking the step to move from static drawing to dynamic simulation will be seamless. Publish process maps on a Web page You can share your process maps—the drawing of your process flowchart—with others by using Visio’s HTML export feature to publish on an intranet. To save the drawing in HTML format, select the File > Save As menu option in Visio and change the type to HTML Files. (See Visio’s online help for more information about the HTML export feature.) The value of modeling and analyzing your processes can be further exploited by saving process performance information with the process maps. The results of simulation runs can be saved in HTML format, providing a benchmark against which actual operations or other improvement concepts can be compared. To save the reports, click the Export button when you have an Arena report open and select the HTML option as the file type. 181
