Version 6.0.0

June 2012

 

New Examples

TopRank 6.0 includes a completely revised set of example files, designed and written by leading MBA professor and author Dr. Chris Albright of Indiana University.  Each includes plain-language descriptions, and may be edited to suit your situation.  In addition, many of the examples include a web link to a short video walk-through of the model.

New Video Tutorials

New video tutorials have also been added from Dr. Albright.  A new, interactive Quick Start tutorial shows new users how to build and understand a simple simulation model in less than 30 minutes.  In addition, other video tutorial resources have been developed to help experienced users get the most out of their software.

Ability to Select From Multiple Software Licenses

In some cases, you may have more than one license for a Palisade product.  For example, if you are both employed by a company that gave you a professional license, but also have a student license from a university you attend, the is more than one possible license that could be used.  In version 5.x you were given no choice in this matter.  The product chose one of the licenses to use and proceeded to run.  In version 6.x, the Activate License Dialog now allows you to look at all your existing licenses, and choose which one to use.

Improved Support for SSD Installations.

New licensing capabilities ease installation and licensing when SSD drives are used.

New License Manager

A new License Manager has been created to help you view your license information, activate software you have purchased, help you move licenses from one machine to another, and other related tasks.
