    Information about the SIMIT Simulation Framework (SF) with PCS 7 Getting Started

    This Getting Started describes the basic procedures and the interaction of the SIMIT SF software components based on the "color_gs" project.

    Additional information is available in the online help on SIMIT and CTE (Component Type Editor).



    In this documentation, the names of elements in the software interface are specified in the language of this documentation. If you have installed a multi-language package for the operating system, some of the designations will be displayed in the base language of the operating system after a language switch and will, therefore, differ from the designations used in the documentation.

    In SIMIT SF, you can use standard Windows functions in many situations:

    • Multiple selection using the "CTRL" and "Shift" keys
    • Column sorting in tables by clicking on the column header
    • Use of "drag-and-drop" instead of "copy and paste"

    The individual tutorials in the Getting Started build on one another. For this reason, you should work through all the tutorials in the specified sequence.

    Purpose of this Getting Started documentation
