Thing here is Alan, if you look at the example included in the transportation library, you will note that they assign volume = 5 and weight = 5. Thus if you want to use this transporter for weight or volume you have to make a double assignment each time. Throw some other conversions such as weight ...

Thanks for the update Glen but I will wait till the next update till the Tanker has been standardized to with the rest of the Simio Flow objects. i.e. Capacities assignments of a Tank, Filler, Emptier, Flowcontainer: Right Capacity Assignments.PNG vs. Capacity assignment of a Tanker: Wrong Capacity...

The pipe object appears to have artificial maximum on its rate of transfer. The pipe initially starts with a desired speed state value of 2 m/s has a hidden property input. This means that any entity transferring into the pipe starts at a maximum of that speed. Attempting to transfer entities at mas...

That should be pretty easy to do by sub-classing the worker. Can you define how an absenteeism factor would work? Just from guessing exactly what you mean, try sub-classing the worker and editing its 'onCapacityChanged' process. Check if the capacity has changed from 0 to 1, and randomly, based on y...

I like the transportation aisles which allows for some limited obstacle avoidance. Is it possible to combine multiple bays with different transportation aisles but only use one bridge, such that the transportation aisle changes as the crane traverses to its destination?

This newest version seems to be fairly bugged with 'simple' models. I can't get it to work... two different types of errors keep showing up. I've attached a project file that shows both these errors.

Deadlocking prevention is normally done either by: 1. Changing the configuration of the network so deadlocks can't happen. Or 2. Creating your own custom processes to make sure vehicles make intelligent decisions to avoid deadlocking. You could simply make the two routes one way to avoid deadlocking...

You can use the search step to return the index of the vehicle you're looking for fairly easily. For the search step return value, try something along the lines of Candidate.CurrentStation.Contents.IndexOfItem(Candidate) which should cause your tokens return value (Token.ReturnValue) to be set to th...

You can get get the flow going again by clearing the destination of the entity. I would attach a revised version of the sim bit but files cannot be attached in public forums. Regardless, only ONE extra step is needed. Add a Set Node step to the beginning of Empty Ship process. Use this node to clear...

I created a very basic, not quite fully functional, 'dwell time' model that calculates the dwell time based on how soon the next departure slot is according to Dave's 3rd example. I don't feel my approach is very elegant but maybe it can help get you started. It's at the following post: http://www.s...
