<p>SimPy is a process-based discrete-event simulation language based on
standard Python and released under the GNU LGPL.</p>
<p>It provides the modeller with components of a simulation model. These
include processes, for active components like customers, messages, and
vehicles, and resources, for passive components that form limited
capacity congestion points like servers, checkout counters, and
tunnels. It also provides monitor variables to aid in gathering
statistics.</p>
<p>SimPy can be downloaded from the &quot;SimPy web-site&quot;: <a class="reference" href="http://simpy.sourceforge.net">http://simpy.sourceforge.net</a>.</p>
<p>Simulation model developers are encouraged to share their SimPy
modeling techniques with the SimPy community. Please &quot;post a message
to the simpy-Users mailing list&quot;,
<a class="reference" href="mailto:simpy-users&#64;lists.sourceforge.net">mailto:simpy-users&#64;lists.sourceforge.net</a>.</p>
<p>&quot;Subscribe to simpy-users mailing list.&quot;, <a class="reference" href="http://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/simpy-users">http://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/simpy-users</a></p>
<p>Software developers are encouraged to interface SimPy with other
Python-accessible packages, such as GUI, data base or mapping and to
share these new capabilities with the community under the GNU GPL.</p>
<p>Feature requests for future SimPy versions should be sent to &quot;Klaus
G. Muller&quot;, <a class="reference" href="mailto:kgmuller&#64;users.sourceforge.net">mailto:kgmuller&#64;users.sourceforge.net</a>, or &quot;Tony Vignaux&quot;,
