Re: Track State Statistic in Experiment

To extend the above example, the Monitor element would fire an event and/or trigger a process. In that process you would need to have a Tally step that records an observation on a TallyStatistics element.

If you had posted this in the Simio Insiders area I would have included a screen shot.

Re: Problem with Lognormal Distribution

Statfit does that automatically if you select Simio as the Export Application.

Re: Problem with Lognormal Distribution

The meaning of Simio's parameters are well described in help and consistent with industry standards. It appears that you may not be choosing the correct export application in Stat::Fit. When I choose the default export I see 3 parameters, but when I choose the Simio application it shows an expressio...

The best choice is to use the Task Sequences option of the Server.

Re: Time varying appointment arrivals

If you want a solution to a problem, it is best to post your questions inside Simio Insiders where we can post files with the response. I tried what I think you are doing and it worked fine for me, aside from the fact that the expression you used creates 1 arrival per event between 6- 11 am, 2 arriv...

Re: Reading the results pivot grid

They are similar statistics except that the first statistic looks at the resource state as it changes over time ... successive "busy" states with no state change between them (e.g. there is no idle time) are considered to be a single busy state. For the second statistic each entity is recorded separ...

Re: Routing based on time schedule

A slightly more efficient and easier to read version of the same logic:
Math.If(((DateTime.Hour(TimeNow)>6)&&(DateTime.Hour(TimeNow)<=10)), (1-p1), 0 )

Or shorter:
((DateTime.Hour(TimeNow)>6)&&(DateTime.Hour(TimeNow)<=10))*(1-p1)

Re: can I measure the electricity consumption in Simio

There are many ways to do this. In that same SimBit, if you look into the definition of MyVehicle, near the bottom you will find a process named StartChargingBattery. One way is to simply change the properties of that Decide step.

Re: Crane Library - Bridge and Underhung bridge cranes

Can the Cranes object in the Extras library be sub-classed in the same manner as the Bridge and Underhung cranes? I am running into issues with 3-crane deadlocks in the Cranes object which is why I was looking for something else which could be sub-classed and modified. Yes they can. But perhaps you...

Re: Crane Library - Bridge and Underhung bridge cranes

Yes, I believe it is. If you do not need the "underhung" ability to move cranes from one bridge to another, then I suggest that you instead use the Cranes object in the Extras library. This newer library is simpler, has a few more features, and is more robustly tested. http://www.simio.com/forums/vi...

Re: queuing at server1 when server2 is busy

In 9.148 and later we introduced Reneging functions that make this easier. And one of our SimBits is very close to your request. Search the help or SimBits for "Reneg"

Re: Track State Statistic in Experiment

Create a Monitor on the state value, and every time it goes to zero Tally an observation.

Re: Setting up transporter name from an object in the main model

If you want to specify a specific name, such as one specified in a table, just reference the column name that contains that.
If you want to select the best vehicle, then you need to first put hose vehicles on a list and select from the list.
