CellSim Instructions iii Instructions from the CellSim Program File CellSim.XLS Factory Simulator John O. McClain [email protected] Johnson Graduate School of Management Cornell University Ithaca NY 14853 SIMULATION RESULTS are stored on a series of worksheets in the output file: Individual Item data is on a separate sheet with the name of the StorageArea. Individual Process data is on a separate sheet with the name of the Machine. Use any of Microsoft Excel's methods to tabulate or display the results. USING CellSim The remaining instructions are in three sections: CONTROLLING THE SIMULATION ; what numbers you have to enter before running a simulation. RUNNING A SIMULATION ; what the buttons do. MODELING ; how to construct or change a model. CONTROLLING THE SIMULATION Run-In Time can be set to zero if you do not want a run-in period.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
