New and improved in BlockSim Version 2019

Process flow

In Version 2019 ReliaSoft BlockSim has a new diagram called Process Flow. This new diagram is specifically designed for the analysis of continuous throughput within the process industry. It allows for the user to input reliability and availability information for their equipment within the process much the same way as a traditional RBD does, but instead of the important metric for the system being availability, it is amount of material processed, and this can include multiple types of flows instead of in an RBD where throughput was calculated as a generic material or item (e.g., widgets).
