FloWorks 2017.1.0 and 2017.0.2 Available.

Talumis FloWorks for FlexSim

The FloWorks module has been updated for FlexSim 2017 Update 1 and FloWorks 17.1.0 is now available (10 April 2017). This release contains new features (see the Release Notes section below). It does not work with the LTS version of FlexSim 2017 (17.0.x).

The upgrade version FloWorks 17.0.3 has been released for FlexSim 2017 (17.0.4). It contains all the bug fixes from FloWorks 17.1.0 but it does not contain new features and does not work with FlexSim 2017 Update 1 (17.1.0).

NOTE: Due to a change in FlexSim, a new version was released on April 12. If you are using FlexSim 17.0.0 - 17.0.3, please use FloWorks 17.0.2, which is functionally identical.

Both versions can be found in the Downloads section of your FlexSim account on the 3rd party modules tab. Bugs may be reported to [email protected].

Release notes

FloWorks 17.1.0 (April 11, 2017)

This version of FloWorks supports FlexSim version 17.1.0.

  • Added a multi-compartment loading controller to allow multiple tanks on the same Task Executer to be loaded in sequence and/or in parallel.
  • Added the mass flow conveyor, an accumulating version of the Flow Conveyor.
  • Instead of using numeric product IDs, you can now pre-define a product table in your model, with fixed product names and colors. See the Products page in the FloWorks User Manual for more information.
  • As of now, FloWorks license versions will need to be upgraded with every release, similar to your FlexSim license. (Existing users will automatically be requested to upgrade their license using the Request Upgrade button in the FlexSim License Activation window.)
  • All bug fixes included in version 17.0.2, see below.
