Arena® Simulation Software by Rockwell Automation is the world’s leading simulation software and has been used successfully to advance the efficiency and productivity of businesses. It is designed to provide the power required for successful simulation within an easy-to-use modelling environment.
Our simulation modelling team at SMS has used Arena for over 30 years.
Arena® models respond much as would be expected in the real world. They provide managers with the ability to explore options and try out proposals, allowing better decision making before major commitment. Our clients gain an intimate knowledge of all possible outcomes, which minimises the risk associated with investment and change. Simulation can be used to establish mobile equipment requirements, size infrastructure, trial control strategies, or view a system’s performance under different loads or product mixes.
You can download a trial version of Arena Professional Edition for free from the Arena website. The Arena Trial is designed with your success in mind. The download includes full functionality with no time limit, just a limited model size.

Arena Standard Edition is designed for use throughout an enterprise, supporting both in-depth analyses of a particular functional area (e.g. manufacturing, logistics, customer service, health care) and analysis of processes that span several functional areas.
Arena Professional Edition simulation software is most effective when analyzing complex, medium to large-scale projects involving highly sensitive changes related to mining systems, supply chain, manufacturing, processes, logistics, distribution, warehousing, and service systems.
In addition, Arena PE is used to create customised simulation modelling products – like templates focused on specific applications or industries. Custom templates can consist of ‘libraries’ of modelling objects that make it significantly easier and faster to develop models that require repeat logic.
Templates included: Basic Process, Advanced Process, Advanced Transfer, Flow Process, Blocks, Elements
OptQuest® for Arena is an optimisation tool (solver) customised and fine-tuned for analysing the results of simulation runs conducted in Arena (experimentation). OptQuest includes sampling techniques and advanced error control to find better answers faster, and incorporates state-of-the-art algorithms based on tabu search, scatter search, integer programming, and neural networks. This well-researched technology has been shown to be orders of magnitude faster than simpler approaches.
OptQuest for Arena is an add-on option to Arena.
