Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to adapt my simulation to use OptQuest?
No, build your simulation as normal. Then you set the objective and constraints, you don’t need to edit or adapt your simulation to work with OptQuest.
Can I experiment with anything?
Any variable or simulation object property can be automatically changed through the OptQuest engine. You can’t experiment with structural changes, so for example what if change the process structure so that a senior doctor sees patients first rather than a junior doctor.
Does OptQuest work in Simul8 Online?
Yes! It's fully compatible with our online version. If you’d like to leverage the power of our cloud to run even more optmizations quicker, get in touch. We have customers who run nightly optimizations to work out the right sequence of orders to run down the production line for example.
What versions of Simul8 is OptQuest available for?
The latest OptQuest integration is compatible with Simul8 2022 and later.
