V7 - Optimization and OptQuest

Optimization and OptQuest with the Simio Model

Demonstrates the use of the OptQuest add-in to maximize the system throughput by setting the number of operators and the part interarrival time.

Note:: There is an error in this video -- the stability expression should be greater than the threshold, not less than as is shown in the constraint (around 2:50 of the video). In other words, the ratio of the departure rate to the arrival rate should be greater than the threshold value (of, say 99%) to ensure that what arrives, departs, while accommodating some level of WIP.
