Examples of Dashboards

Posted by Jason Lillywhite

Do you want to add a dashboard to your GoldSim model but need some ideas on how to design it? Are you looking for ways to improve its functionality and ease of use? If so, maybe some of the examples shown below will give you some useful ideas. In this blog post, I have included screen captures of some models that highlight various approaches to building effective dashboards.

Modeling Runoff from Multiple Catchments using a Vector Splitter

Posted by Jason Lillywhite

If you have some flow of material or a transaction and need to divide it up or allocate it, likely you will use the Allocator or Splitter element in GoldSim. While these elements are very powerful and make the job a lot easier, there is one condition for which it was not specifically built: handling an array of input amounts. To address this, we have added some nice examples to our library that allow you to simulate allocations and splits on arrays of data. These examples provide an easy way to build powerful models that might have otherwise been quite difficult to build and maintain. I tested the array splitter example model using a real-world example that simulates rainfall runoff in a new stormwater management system, and this is described in this post.

Register for the GoldSim User Conference and Training Workshop Before July 31

Posted by Rick Kossik

The GoldSim User Conference is just around the corner.  It will be held in Seattle on September 24 and 25, 2015. The conference will be preceded (on September 22 and 23) by a two day training workshop (focusing on novice users). This training session prior to the conference provides a great opportunity for novice users to get trained and then stick around and meet and learn from experienced users. There is a 50% discount to those who register for the conference before July 31.
