  4. I'm having trouble calculating the average time between Objects. I know there's some built in function called time in system to get entity totle time in the system. But now I care the time entity spent between nodes. EG: I have entityA, entityB, entitleC, I want to find the entityA average time spent from server1 to the server6, from server1 to the very end, from the very begining to server4? How should I do these, what does the expression look like? I want to add a label to show that numbers dynamically during the run of the model.
  5. Thank you Jeff, you are the best... I used a very silly way to implement it. Now I have your much smarter method...
  6. You can first create three properties, then in the table you create a Expression type column called Percentage, and reference the created properties above In the experiments tab you will see them as controls. Hope that helps!
  7. I have several different types of entities. And I want to see the result if I change the distribution of entity types. EG: senario1: A:10, B:20, C:70 senario2: A:20, B:20, C:60 senario3: A:40, B:20, C:40 I want to run experiments for these 3(Actually I plan to run more and more) different experiments and check the results. I don't know How to do these experiments. Anyone has an idea? Thank you!
  8. Thank you. I used another computer which doesn't have enterprise version simio to open it and it's helpful... I did't know 'Is.xxx' function...
  9. can't open your models. SInce i'm using commercial version/enterprise version... It says commercial version can't open academic/personal version model...
  10. For data tables approach examine the model: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1evwTU-ggxEVCrrksClctNoHhMakEhi4V/view?usp=sharing
  11. There are a few ways to achieve part/path matching. You can see the simplest one in the model I shared via the link below. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Uoi6Lt1vdw095tHWTwTd6Azk_95fXmu_/view?usp=sharing If you have many entities and paths you should use data tables approach.
  12. Also, this question may sound silly, but how to make specific type1 go path1, type2 go path2, type3 go path3? I have to create table? or there's an easier way?
  13. Time Path would work but use 3 different paths just a little bit ugly if there's an 'allow passing' option will be better, as in normal path, there's an 'allow passing' option...
  14. Hi Sean, I would recommend exploring Time Paths. You can set a specific or random Travel Time on Time Paths. I don't know your scenario exactly, but you could have 3 different Time Paths linking ServerA and ServerB with Selection Weights referring to the specific Entity item number and each of these Time Paths could have a different Travel Time. All the best, Caleb Simio Technical Support
  15. I don't think that would work for my situation... But thank you very much. Also, do you any idea that how I can control path speed? Currently there's only a speed limit... For conveyor I can change the speed, but the problem for conveyor is it can't allow passing between items...
  16. Hi Sean, Where is your Process triggered? Depending on its location, it may allow multiple Entities to Delay simultaneously. For example, if this Process is at Output@ServerA, this will allow multiple to Delay at once and the Entity that finishes the Delay step first will move along the Path to ServerB first. You can have them Delay one at a time if you change the Output Buffer Capacity to '1', however, this will cause ServerA to be in a blocked state until the Delay is complete. All the best, Caleb Simio Technical Support
  17. I have new question followed, eg: I have item1, item2, item3, serverA and serverB process super fast, but when they go through from server A to server B they have waiting time 3 min, 5 min, 1 min. For server B, I want to process the item who arrives first... But now it seems, item2 and item3 have to wait until item1 is done traveling which is not what I want. Because ideally we want to make improve the utilization of both servers.
  18. Hi Sean, I would recommend exploring an Add-On Process Trigger that utilizes a Delay step. You can have the Delay Time of the Delay step set to an equation that is random (i.e. 'Random.Exponential(mean)'). All the best, Caleb Simio Technical Support
  19. I'm simulating a workflow, now between two servers, there's a delay between them, we could understand it as some out-of-control waiting time or simply travel time between 2 servers. I don't know how to set this travel time perfectly. I tried set 'path' speed, but I don't think it setting that can make the time randomly… because in my situation, the delay processing time can be random. I can add another server called 'delay/travel machine' to solve this problem perfectly, but it just looks ugly and weird… So I'm wondering if there's a better solution for this?
  20. This file is working. Let me try this out. I really appreciate your help. Thank you very much.
  21. I'm having the same problem aswell. Did anyone find a fix?
  22. I can not upload the file. Try this link: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1D548lj3OsccGzFRn77m7J_UZ9dueG_TE
  23. I hope the attached model works for you. It seems there is problem while uploading. I will try again later.
  24. Thank you so much for all your help. I'll contact the technical support.
  25. I am not able to attach the file here. It shows upload failed.
  26. Hi, I am new to Simio. I was trying to add a routing decision in my model based on average time waiting at a server. But this function only shows up in the status label but not when I try to use it in the Processes as shown in the images. An entity reaching a node should choose the route to a server which has minimum average time waiting. What I am trying to achieve is to create a dynamic routing so that the average Time in System of the entity will be minimized. I don't know whether this is the right method or if we need to work with API or functions to achieve this. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  27. You might need to use PLANVISIT step to search those passed entities to see if it meet the conditions now
