  • WITNESS Experimenter Add response has intelligent prompting for expression edit
  • WITNESS Experimenter Allow Simple Experiment scenarios to inherit their parameter values from another scenario
  • WITNESS Experimenter Has a new run mode that submits experiment to run using the service. Models are packaged, uploaded and submitted for running.
  • Add Intellisense for WITNESS Expression controls
  • Added scenario progress update for experiments running on
  • WITNESS Experimenter Add ability to run scripts before an experiment is run and after it has completed.
  • All experiment results executed by Experimenter on services are downloaded and unzip in the local model directory.
  • WITNESS Experimenter Allow WITNESS Experiment to reconnect to a running Experiment.

  • WITNESS Experimenter Implement Steady State Time and Total Run Time. Duration and RunLength api functions have been deprecated. SteadyStateDuration and TotalRunLength api functions have been added.

Feature Improvements

  • The "Warmup" & "Run Length" properties where confusing, these have changed to "Warmup", "Steady State" and "Total Run Time". The relationship between fields is "Total Run Time" = "Warmup" + "Steady State". Changes to any of new individual fields will adjust maintain this relationship.

  • Machine with no part in setup interrupted by a breakdown returns to setup after repair
  • Pie chart of states works for a P&F Station
  • Importing a Cloud license deletes any previous cloud licenses
  • CountItemsString() returns the correct number when checking for a blank string
  • ImportState function doesn’t cause Path Network Error when run after load from .lst file
  • Previously setups on value changed would trigger when actions language comparison indicates values have not changed. This was due to difference in precision of comparison, it is now consistent across both actions and setup on value changed.
  • Continuous conveyor Length value can’t be saved when less than Spacing On value
  • Ignore the Pseudo Path Display Size when using pseudo paths, use Part Length, Width and Height attributes instead
