Good morning, Looking at flow nodes, under the Input- and Output flow control sections, there's a slot for Switch Control Variable. I've tried to figure out exactly how this works but could not find anything in any Simio literature so far (Joines Roberts, Introduction to Simio, Simio Reference Guide...

Hi guys,

Great add in!

Is it possible to define the add-on processes for servers, links etc. using this addin? That is, would it be possible to a few columns with Add-on processes as headings, lets say "Add on process: When entering" and then have "KeepEntityUntilX" as a process?

Thanks.

Thanks, I''ll give it a try although I fear that it might lead to more than one tank being filled at the same time? Thanks for the accumulation tip! My next question is: 1.

Thanks MEager, I managed to get around the problem by doing the following: Output node at source: Split flow "Preferred order by link weight" Links: Use Flow connectors rather than pipes and give each a link weight based on the state of the flow regulator that it links to. Tanks: Give each dynamic f...

Splitting flow between a bank of tanks

Hi there, I'd like to split flow to a bank of tanks by filling them one by one from a single flow source. The first tank (any available tank) should be filled completely, as soon as this tank is filled the next tank available should be filled. The tanks should empty after a few hours and become avai...
