Why PACE?

More about PACE

PACE2008 offers numerous unique single or combined features which were especially designed for use in simulation models. The most important ones are listed here:

  • Comfortable development surface
  • Graphical model editor for the visualizing of process paths
  • Easy visualization of process paths or nets with pictures of the use or application
  • Time modeling
  • Module or component techniques (hierarchical models, development of own application-specific components)
  • Simple insertion of program texts into nets (attributation)
  • Simulator (scalable animation and background runs, forward and backward)
  • Comfortable debugger with many options for the dynamic testing of simulation models
  • Freezing of models for use-simulators
  • Easy-to-use application surface for the daily use of simulators
  • Numerous probability distributions for the development of stochastic Petri nets
  • Empirical probability distributions (e.g., from measuring data)
  • Fuzzy modeling to process vague (unsharp) data
  • Numerous graphical visualization and input/output elements
  • Tables and button boards
  • PACE net functions to encapsulate partial nets which are used at several places in an application
  • Several different empirical and mathematical methods for the optimization of model parameters (costs, processing time, etc.)
  • Complete documentation on CD (Online manual, starter tutorial, Smalltalk primer, user manual, cookbook, Fuzzy manual, optimization manual, interface manual). Most documents are available in PDF format and can also be used for independent study.
  • Easy to handle connections of external procedures and program packages via Dynamic Link Libraries (DDL)
  • Communication with simultaneously executing programs (e.g. 1-2-3, Excel, Access) via Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE)
  • Data base access via ODBC
