Level Zero: Introduction

Last modified on January 31st, 2017.


This introduction tutorial prepares you for the rest of the tutorials to follow. You will import example models, become familiar with 'Discrete Event Simulator' user interface features, and explore available settings. Perform the following outlined steps in Innoslate:

  1. Ensure you are currently signed into Innoslate, then click the link provided below to automatically load the Robotic System example models into a new blank project.

  2. This opens the 'Import Simulation Examples' dialog, as shown below. Click the 'Continue' button to finish loading the Robotic System example models into the newly created project named "Simulation Examples".

    Import Simulation Examples Dialog

    Upon successful import you will be navigated to ‘Diagrams View’ in Innoslate.

  3. Within 'Diagrams View', click on the "1 Level One: Robot Root Action" link in to navigate directly to that particular 'Action Diagram' in Innoslate.

    Click on Level One in Diagrams View

  4. Within the 'Action Diagram', click to open the blue 'Simulate' dropdown and select the 'Discrete Event' menu item under the "Advanced Technology" section.

    Click the Discrete Event Menu Item

  5. This will navigate you to the 'Discrete Event Simulator' with your 'Action Diagram' loaded and ready to simulate, as shown below:

    Discrete Event Simulator

    The simulator is comprised of a sidebar to the left and a set of panels to the right which can be shown, hidden, re-sized and sorted in any order to best meet your needs. By default, the simulator displays the following panels: ‘Status’, ‘Total Time’, ‘Total Cost’, ‘Action Trace 3D’, and ‘Gantt Chart’.

    The ‘Status’ panel displays the 'Action' constructs currently in the simulator event queue and their current state. The ‘Total Time’ and ‘Total Cost’ panels display the current overall simulation time and cost respectively. To view the context of the current running 'Action' constructs, the ‘Action Trace 3D’ panel displays a 3D Action Diagram of your entire model. The ‘Gantt Chart’ panel shows the total simulation time and the duration of the 'Action' constructs.

  6. Explore the additional panels and the settings available via the left sidebar.

  7. Save your current panel configuration and settings by clicking the 'Save Settings' button located in the 'Settings' menu, as shown below:

    Click the Save Settings Button
