Re: Simulation of plastic injection

A status label only displays the value of a variable. :D
In order to obtain the information you need, you can use one predefined variable, as the number of entities entering a specific buffer (that will be something like object.inputbufer.numberentered ) or create your own variables.

Re: Probabilistic Routing (without using selection weights)

you may want to use a random probabilistic function to select one row of your sequence, and then using SetRow to point to this randomly obtained position as your actual one.

Re: Creating simulation model of multistory hospital

Good luck AvinashPatel! Movement of drawings are not properly managed, it's enterely done "by hand" as stated by willem, you try-and-error to place them at the precise height but you will give up after some time. My advice: place a "dumb" element like a resource and declare the drawing as being its ...

Re: Workstation as an autoclave

An alternative approach might be using a combiner upstream to the WS to create a fictional entity, let's call it "block", which contains all 3 objects. This way, the workstation process a single entity (the block). All 3 original entities enter and leave the WS at the same time, obviously. Downstrea...

Re: Decision by Condition

easiest way might be giving a different priority to each one of your entities, and create a condition on each link to match that priority

So, on the link, you'll have a Link Weight with an expression like this: ModelEntity.Priority == X, being X the priority given to each different entitiy.

Re: How can workstation choose entities on priority basis

By "choose entiites on basis of color" do you mean that your workstation process times are different based on the "type" (color, a sting variable) of the entity being processed? If affirmative, you could use a Math.If expression to determine process times for a short number of cases, or a table if y...
