Subject: DES tools comparison: Anyone using SimEvents???

I'm looking for a DES tool for modeling production line capacity/performance with resource and routing constraints.

My list of DES tools now consists of:

SimEvent
Arena (Rockwell Automation)
SIMUL8
Lanner Witness
FlexSim
Automod
Extendsim

Doe's anyone have any thoughts on the best DES tool? From my own evaluations I find SimEvents the most intuitive but as a (relatively) new product there does not appear to be many users. Extendsim and SIMUL8 have pretty front end graphics but you have to get into coding very quickly to achieve much.

Thanks.

Mark.
