Hi, Dave,
I tried to create my own object composite, but if I use the entity reference with AutoCreate inside my LiftTruck, the Lifting device referenced cannot be moved in External View. Do you have any idea of how to solve this?

We have developed an add-in with as many as 60 forecasting algorithms. Input is a table with time series data, output is a table with mean and uncertainity intervals.
if you have any questions please contact me on

This is very usefull, (didn't test it, but I use simillar approach without using new object. It is a good idea to crate an object for this.

You should try the simbits (in support Ribbon).
Insert keyword (agent) and you will see many use cases with models and description

Hi Glen, I used the plugin to import some hundreds of objects and it was too slow and frequently made SIMIO unresponding. I used our programmers to change the logic of plugin (problem was frequent comunication between Excel and SIMIO, so they used an array or so instead) and we added small lag betwe...

You will probably have to start with specification of what is the funcionality and aim of the simulation. I can imagine, that different approaches will be used if you are concerned with storage capacity or if you want to simulate utilization of vehicles. Other differences apply if you want to have r...

Happened to me between sprints 120 and 123 My support ticket: I had made some unwise things testing both sprint 123 an 120. In one time I swithed from 123 to 120 and then back to 123 and I found all decide steps with no Coditions. All conditions were set to 0.0. I know that I should not do this (go ...

I had a model containing those trains. Since train vehicle was not available then, I used my subclassed vehicle with as many stations as I wanted for wagoons. This train had the disadvatage, that it did not animated turning on corners (it was a long vehicle) but for the purpose of simulation it was ...

I see that if I trace Robot, there are some variables that are updated more times in one step. Is it like that those variables make conection with some other part of robot.
So I can use asign step to set varA:= varB/2 and then varA is updated instantly on the change of varB?

Just a note, latest added list shows on the top of Node List Selection. So it is convenient to Add objects to node and immediately allign them.

I always wanted an easy way to make my models look tidy. One of our developers created this add-in which can align and evenly distribute nodes or objects added to a list. I think usage is pretty easy and will help in building models with many nodes etc. Feel free to use it as a early christmas gift ...

Model Entity bound token can still search through queue. You just need to specify match condition like: ModelEntity.Priority == Candidate.vehicle.priority ModelEntity is bound to the original token and you use the keyword Candidate to specify, that you mean items that are in the queue. Vehicles (and...

Do you use Search step to loop through the queue? Each Search step has two endings original and found. The found token is associated with the found object (entity, vehicle whatever) You just use Transfer step on this ending. Search step also has many way to prioritize or match exact condition to fin...

Hi, I tried this library and it is a nice thing to work with. Few suggestions: 1.) It took me some time to get the difference between ForwardandBack and LeftandRight. 2.) Crane can, to my great suprise, transfer entities to nodes out of Bay. This happens only if the node is outside bay in the direct...
