I found a bullet point stated below in a training material explaining the advantage of flow library in simio. I will be happy if anyone can explain what is meant by segment. I wanted to put the pic of the slide but I couldn't not past it here. Can anyone suggest me how to put image here.
Assigning and tracking the attributes of entities representing material flow segments is readily supported (e.g., product type, routing destination, composition data)
.

What I believe is meant here is that entities that represent flow, can have individual unique attributes (states and properties in Simio). So your flow based tank full of products, will or can have unique attributes on each of the products in the tank. Also with flow, you can let two types of products flow into a valve and have a third type of products flow out of the valve.

Hope that helps.

Sincerely,
Martin

If you want to post files and images you must post inside the Simio Insiders Forums. If we allowed that here you would see too much spam and porn.
