To create or open a FlexSim model, launch FlexSim 7 on your computer or server and choose one of the following options:
To create a new model, click File > New and select a template or a blank model.
To open an existing model, click File > Open and browse to the location of the model file.
To open a sample model, click File > Open Sample Model and choose from the list of models.
Once you have created or opened a model, you can customize it using the simple drag-and-drop controls, the properties panel, the process flow tool, and the scripting language. You can also run simulation using the model to test \"what if\" scenarios and analyze the results.
Step 3: Publish the Model to FlexSim WebServer
Once you have finished building and testing your model, you can publish it to FlexSim WebServer so that it can be accessed by other users through a web browser. To publish your model to FlexSim WebServer, follow these steps:
Click File > Publish Model.
In the Publish Model dialog box, enter a name for your model and choose a destination folder on your computer or server.
Click Publish. A message will appear confirming that your model has been published successfully.
Step 4: Access the Model Through a Web Browser
To access your model through a web browser, you need to know the IP address or hostname of your computer or server where FlexSim WebServer is installed.
