This paper highlights the features and functions of Systems Modeling Corporation's general purpose simulation system, Arena. Arena represents an advancement in simulation technology by enabling enterprise-wide simulation. It is a comprehensive system that addresses all phases of a simulation project from input data analysis to the analysis of simulation output data. Building on the capabilities of Systems Modeling's earlier products, SIMAN and Cinema, Arena uses a hierarchical approach to provide the user with the power of a simulation language and the flexibility of a simulator. The object-oriented approach that was central to Arena's development, coupled with the hierarchical architecture, enables the professional user to define the personality of the system for the end-user. The professional user can actually build his or her own simulation system by combining SIMAN and Arena constructs into modules for the end-user. Arena is focused on bringing the use of simulation to broad new classes of users. Its application focus addresses the needs of manufacturing as well as decision support for many other areas including, business process reengineering, medical systems, transportation, logistics, and data communications
