about Deslib: coming from Mathematica I bought WSM 4.2 with the main objective to analyze waiting queues (more complex than the examples for MMA QueueingNetworkProcess, with branches etc.; I needed that for simulating and optimizing waiting queues in airports). This should be a typical application for an environment like WSM. But: no queues, Deslib does not work, no hints, no chance to solve my problems with MMA/WSM (Sorry, this is just my my frustration).
About WSM documentation: I expected a documentation like MMA provides. Definition, Details, Examples (Basic, Scope, Applications, Properties&Relations, Neat Examples). I love MMA.
But when I clicked on WSM Documentation Center > Additional Libraries > SystemDynamics > Overview > Population I got the information:
"The System Dynamics methodology is frequently being used for the description of complex interactions between different biological species. This application area, which forms part of the ecological sciences, is usually referred to as population dynamics. This is still one of the most popular application areas of the System Dynamics methodology with thousands of publications describing different aspects of the dynamics of ecosystems."
In the Class Browser under UsersGuide > Overview > Population (double click) the result is even shorter:
"class Population 'Population Dynamics' extends Modelica.Icons.Information; end Population".
This is found when I tried to use an official library of WSM. There is nothing wrong with these sentences but they are not helpful ! I expect a "How to", a "FAQ" etc. I am not guided by this users guide.
There are many good textbooks about MMA but I could not find anything like this for WSM, although there are some books about OpenModelica, e.g. Fritzson et. al. Should I better use OMEdit? Why pay for WSM?
I wanted to stay in the Wolfram Universe but at now I found that Arena or Anylogic do the job much better and OMEdit does for free.
Maybe I am wrong. In this case it would make me very happy if you (or others reading this discussion) could help me with some guiding hints.
