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.

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...
