Re: DirectDistanceTo.Object(object) question

Try the following:

Specify the instance of the work, if you have only one:
WrkA.DirectDistanceTo.Object(WrkB): {DirectDistanceTo.Object(WrkB[1])}

Reference the model:
WrkA.DirectDistanceTo.Object(TransferNode1): {DirectDistanceTo.Object(Model.TransferNode1)}

Save Step

Hi, This might be handy to ensure you save frequently. We place the step on run initialized and it automatically saves the model (given the model is selected). See attached. Copy the extracted "SaveStep.dll" into "C:\Users\<YOUR USERNAME>\Documents\SimioUserExtensions". You might need to add the Sim...

Re: AutoCAD file

Hi, Yes, but you can assign multiple simbols to a object... So you are still capable of doing your animation. Just note that the size will remain the same therefore you have to change the size when changing the symbol. Refer to the simio reference guide, search for symbols. This should help you to i...

Re: Destroying an entity if a failure occurs during service

Hi,

In the on-failed event of the server,
Search the contents of the processing queue, in the found step place a release step in order to release the applicable server. Directly after that place a destroy step to delete the entity, otherwise you can transfer it back to the start.

Hope this helps...

Re: How exactly do you use the switch control variable?

Hi,

Not sure where you found the property but you can use the split allocation rule. Select a rule that you want and make your link weights equal to a variable weight and you can do basically anything.

Hope this helps.

Re: Modulus

Hi,

Math.Remainder(ModelEntity.ProcessingTime, 3) = 0
Additionally you should just check if it is larger than 0.

Unless you assigned a ProcessingTime variable or property to your ModelEntity it will not work. Usually the processing time is linked to a Server.

Convert @Risk Distributions to Simio

Hi,

The conversion of Distributions to the correct Simio format has been an issue for me for a while, thus I created this macro to convert from @Risk distributions to simio format distributions.

I hope that more will share there conversion methods from other software.

Re: Flow Server

Hi Mark,

The quickest fix is just to split into (onto) flow connectors and then add another FlowNode then add the conveyor.
Hope this solves your problem.

Re: Import Objects And Links From Spreadsheet

Not sure about the last 2 questions, but you have to copy the .dll files into the "C:\Users\<YOUR USERNAME>\Documents\SimioUserExtensions" on you computer for the add-ins to appear in Simio. Also be sure to close and reopen Simio.

Ps. Simio is not a spelling mistake Simio Forum Spell Checker!
