Parent topic: Installing the Software Installing Epson iProjection (Mac) Install Epson iProjection on your computer. Turn on your computer. Make sure all running applications are closed. Do one of the following:. Insert the EPSON Projector Software CD-ROM into the computer (if available) and continue with these steps. Wireless Projector Support Epson iProjection. Epson iProjection allows you to wirelessly project from your iOS or Android TM mobile devices as well as Chromebooks, PCs and Macs. Check your projector's owner's manual, to determine if a separate wireless module must be purchased to enable wireless connection on your Epson projector. Wirelessly Project from your Chromebook, iOS. or Android TM mobile device with the Epson iProjection App. This free application allows you to travel lightly and present anywhere from your mobile devices. Teachers can use the iProjection app in the classroom to easily share and control content from up to 4 connected devices simultaneously. Windows

In the last few years, the agent-based modeling (ABM) community has developed several practical agent based modeling toolkits that enable individuals to develop agent-based applications. More and more such toolkits are coming into existence, and each toolkit has a variety of characteristics. Several individuals have made attempts to compare toolkits to each other (see references). Below is a chart intended to capture many of the features that are important to ABM toolkit users.

  1. Discrete Simulation Software

JaamSim is a java-based free and open source discrete-event simulation software which runs on Windows, Linux, and Mac OSX and includes a drag-and-drop user interface, interactive 3D graphics, input and output processing, and model development tools and editors.

  1. Provides all of the functionality in iGrafx FlowCharter plus discrete event simulation analytics, and reporting, enabling dynamic.
  2. In the last few years, the agent-based modeling (ABM) community has developed several practical agent based modeling toolkits that enable individuals to develop agent-based applications. More and more such toolkits are coming into existence, and each toolkit has a variety of characteristics. Several individuals have made attempts to compare toolkits to each other (see references).
  3. The paper first discusses the importance of discrete event simulation (DES) in the business school curriculum. It next notes how small Macintosh lap tops have become increasingly popular among business students. We next discuss what DES software is available on the Mac, first directly, then indirectly by running DES software for Windows in some way on the Mac.

Understand and improve any system or process. FlexSim will help you transform your existing data into accurate predictions.

We’re open during the COVID-19 outbreak

FlexSim will continue to support our users and build simulation models remotely, and we’re set up to deliver training and consulting online. We’re ready to help with supply chain disruptions, healthcare capacity planning, and anything else you need to keep your systems strong during this difficult time.


Our applications engineers designed a proof-of-concept model to show how COVID-19 could spread under different conditions. Click the button below to get the model and a free download of FlexSim 2020 to run it.

Risk-Free Virtual Environment

Build a dynamic computer model of your system and test “what if” scenarios to see what works in the real world.

Analysis Beyond Spreadsheets

Improve on older, static analysis! FlexSim accounts for time, space, variability, and the complex relationships within your system.

However, I’m not here to bash on Mac, I actually absolutely love how well rounded the device and its OS is. I’m here to give you a solution to your problem. Kill an app on mac.

3D Visuals + Validation

FlexSim’s 3D environment and stunning visuals lets you really see what’s happening. It’s a second, critical level of validation.

Case Studies

Simulation in practice.

Learn how smart companies use FlexSim to dynamically model their operations, understand their complex systems, and make better decisions.

Discrete event simulation examples
  • I had an excellent experience with FlexSim’s customer service. Their team responded to my question promptly and even wrote custom code to help me simulate the process. I really appreciate all the help.

  • The 3D aspect of FlexSim was just as powerful or more powerful than I could have hoped. Really pleased with the product and our decision. The Process Flow tool gives you an option that is really practical and real-world, especially in factories. Now, you have the ability to use Process Flow to get a very quick and rough, high level idea of which brainstormed ideas will provide the best output. Then, having used this to narrow down to 2-3 options, you can do detailed models in a much more focused way. With the two together [3D modeling and Process Flow], FlexSim is a fantastic product offering. Well done.

  • FlexSim support has been very helpful although I have asked rather tricky questions at times. Also, the quality of the answers has been good as the developers themselves have answered my questions if the normal support personnel has not been able to.

  • I recently completed a large distribution center modeling project using FlexSim simulation software. I was extremely impressed by the support that I received and the flexibility of FlexSim to model this complex (and massive) system. In the end, the project was considered a success and great investment by the client. The project team was able to use the model to validate the concept design performance over the planning period, identify opportunities for design improvement, and clarify/refine a shared understanding of how the system will actually work. I would highly recommend FlexSim as a modeling tool for large-scale systems based upon this experience.

  • FlexSim delivered a model that met all our expectations. We’ll be able to use it to validate the design of the system, and we’re excited to provide the end client with valuable insight for operational use.
