SIMUL8 2010's new object calendars let you turn simulation objects (including resources) on or off according to a date-based availability pattern. Calendars also allow you to tie your simulation directly to a specific date. For example, you can start your simulation on Jan. 1, 2010 and have all work centers shut down on Dec. 25, 2010.
The calendars feature recurring events (daily, weekly, monthly etc.) and are fully supported by Visual Logic, so you can completely configure and control your calendars even at run time.
We think that many users will find this to be a very useful and convenient capability.
