    • promodel tutorialStart New Model WelcomeBackground Graphic to theLocations ProModel TutorialEntities It will take you approximately 20 minutes to complete this first,Path Networks simple model. Follow the instructions for each step. You canResources press “ALT” and “TAB” simultaneously to switch between ProModel and this presentation. Before trying each step, you may wish toProcessing view the animation for guidance. A few things first…Arrivals 1. Your actions are shown in yellow 2. Save after each stepRun Simulation (during the first save, you’ll have to enter a name -- we’ve chosen “tutorial.mod”)View Output 3. You can advance to the next step just by pressing the “Page Down” key on your computer keyboard or clicking on the subject on the menu at left 4.
