June 8, 2009 (Pleasanton, CA) – Wright Williams & Kelly, Inc. (WWK), the global leader in cost and productivity management software and consulting services, announced today the latest release of its ultra-fast discrete-event simulation software, Factory Explorer®.

WWK has a long history of providing fast simulators to industrial clients. WWK’s Factory Explorer® is based on the “event-graph” paradigm. Factory Explorer® has been benchmarked with industry standard data sets to be more than ten times faster than other job driven simulators. Additionally, simulation speeds in excess of 3.5 million lot moves/minute are achieved with modest laptop computers (1.8 GHz, 2Gb DRAM) running standard Windows operating systems.

This latest release includes the following enhancements:
1. A new “Merge Model Login” screen was added to log into the SQL Server database containing the data to merge. This screen is separate from the old Merge Product flow data screen. After login, a new screen allows selection of a specific factory to merge and specific types of data to merge from the factory selected; Merge product data and merge lot data.
2. Added new user functions for tracking scheduled events; User_PrintEventDescriptions, User_ProcessTracedEvents, Event_GetDescriptions, Event_SetTraceOn, Event_GetName, Event_LookupName, and Misc_FXAboutShow.
