I would like to know where can i specify 'number of cores' for the simulations in Solidworks plastics. Can someone please help me with it?

Thanks for the reply. That post talks about the various computer specs that can improve Solidworks (and its products) performance.
I would like to know, how to assign xx number of cores for a particular analysis in Solidworks plastics?
what is the problem that you're running into?
like andreas says, all solidworks simulation tools will use all the cores that you have to the extent of the solver programming.
the only exception is flow, in flow simulation you can limit the number of cores to a particular solution.
today, you can not assign a certain amount for cores to be used. SOLIDWORKS Plastics will just take all cores that are available.
@ Andi, Thanks for the reply!
@ Jared, Thanks for getting back to me! I am not running into any issue. I just wanted to know if we can specific number of cores for a particular simulation. (I did not know that SW assigns all available cores to the simulation.)
After running the analysis (ie.Flow study), you may try to go to Windows Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+DEL) and set a specific affinity to this particular process (in that case it would be pack.exe).
Unfortunatelly it is not a permament setting so you will have to do this each time you run your analysis...
