Arena is a discrete event simulation and automation software developed by Systems Modeling and acquired by Rockwell Automation in 2000. It uses the SIMAN processor and simulation language. As of 2020, it is in version 16.


SimulationX is ITI’s multiphysics software tool for system simulation. It is used for modeling, analyzing, and optimizing complex, dynamic, nonlinear systems. Simulation models are defined interactively through a user interface. Ready-to-use model elements can be selected from domain-specific libraries.

SimulationX uses familiar symbols and input quantities. It supports the Modelica language. This open and object-oriented approach allows for the creation of user-defined elements through the included TypeDesigner. SimulationX is available in German and English.

SimulationX can interact with MATLAB® and Simulink® through C code export to Simulink, cosimulation with MATLAB and Simulink, DLL integration of MATLAB DLLs, and code import from Simulink Coder™.

C code export to Simulink transfers the functionality of a complete SimulationX model into source code for an S-function. A wizard guides the user through all necessary steps, such as defining the inputs, outputs, and parameters for the S-function. The cosimulation function uses an S-function to connect Simulink with SimulationX. The S-function’s parameters define the communication link to SimulationX. On the SimulationX side, appropriate sender and receiver blocks complete the coupling
