Re: Read Excel file on other server

 by agraunke ¦  Tue Aug 29, 2017 2:01 pm ¦  Forum: Discussions ¦  Topic: Read Excel file on other server ¦  Replies: 1 ¦  Views: 1776

When you bind a data table to an excel file, the file selection interface allows you to select any file on your local computer or any networked folder/server. (The button with three dots next to the "file name" input will pull up the file selection interface). Searching the help for "excel" will giv...

Re: Search a row from a table using an expression

The general idea is that you will need a process (maybe at the beginning node?) that uses the search step, and then stores the resulting expression in a state on the entity (such as MyTravelTime). Then, you can refer to that entity state in the travel time property of the time path. travel time --> ...

Re: Search Members of a Combiner

I think the queue state name expression you are looking for is something like "Combiner1.MemberInputBuffer.Contents" (where Combiner1 is the instance name of the combiner you are interested in). The MemberInput@Combiner1.EntryQueue that you were referring to is the member input node (indicated by th...

Re: Applying a rate table

You can use a regular table with 24 rows, one for each of your hourly distributions. Then you can reference each using something like Table1[Math.ceiling(Math.Remainder(Run.TimeNow, 24))].Distribution as a processing time. One thing to note is that Run.TimeNow returns the run time, not the clock tim...

Re: Combining different entities

The Member Match Expression is an expression that gets evaluated for each entity in the member input buffer. The combiner will batch all members that evaluate that expression to the same value into a batch size set in the “Batch Quantity” property. So in your case, you would like to construct an exp...

I prefer “hack” to “cheat” 8) That’s an interesting comment, though, about sub-models. I feel that in Simio the term ”sub-model” doesn’t really exist; or, rather it describes any model, so it doesn’t really mean anything. I understand the concept of a sub-model, but due to Simio’s object-oriented de...

Hi All, This is not the most useful model. With that disclaimer, I present the spinning server: RotatingServer.spfx It is inspired by some of the logic/features of the (very cool) crane library. Although this particular model may not be very useful, it might provide some inspiration for others looki...

That is super cool!

Two hiccups I had on installation:
1. You need to "unblock" the dlls
2. This requires .NET 4.5

I did not need VS2012, and I have it working on sprint 78.

Thanks for this (and the info on the Roslyn compliler API)!
