  4. Hi Milad, This was a bug in our software that was fixed in Version 214, please download our latest build and you should be able to use this feature. All the best, Caleb
  5. In fact, even if I use just two simple nodes without any steps and other objects, it is not possible to create a street route on map, while it was possible until about a month ago. The features of my software are as follows: Version: 12.205.20430 (64bit) License Type: Academic RPS Expiration: 2021 - 06- 30 Best regards, Milad
  6. Hello! I need to block a specific server in my model, preventing this server from starting its the processing time. The conditions for this to happen are dictated by the following servers, according to a number. In this simplified model I made, if the entity went through the server M1, then this server will stay suspended until T4 finished its processing time. At the same time, M2 will have the same behavior. Following the above, the server just before M1 and M2, called Volvo, must not start its processing time if M1 and M2 are working or if either one is working while the oth
  7. Hi Milad, What version of Simio are you using? Additionally, what steps are you taking to produce this error? All the best, Caleb
  8. Thanks to you both. Anyway, the approach that I understood the most, it was Mauricio's and I found it really useful.

  10. Hi guys, It’s been a while that I am not able to link two nodes on ArcGIS World Street Map. The error is: “A route could not be created between ‘TransferNode1’ and ‘TransferNode2. Either a route doesn’t exist or the routing service could not be contacted’. I tried different locations, but got the same result. This is while there wasn’t any problem before and the quality of my internet connection is ok. I am wondering what the problem is! Thanks in advance for the answers, Milad
  11. Hi again Liz. I found the problem but it wasn't easy to figure out with the RowForKey formula. I used the search function with tablerows as collection type. When I filtered the trace on the search and tally process, I found that the the table index of the found item and index of the search function was not the same in some cases especially for "small" type products. Further even the available row count of the products table was not returning the correct number rows in the table. The products table has 810 rows but it was finding 197 rows only in the search function. I had a separate "pr
  12. Thanks you so much for you help Liz. That's such an advanced modeling techinique I had never heard of before. I would never be able to figure it out myself. It has almost worked but correctly. It has recorded the results for some tallies correctly but recorded some tallies on the wrong tally. I think there is a problem with the set row feature somewhere. I have no problem with setting rows elsewhere in the model such as arrivals from production and arrivals from truck tables create entities correctly with all their state variables. The product list table also has unique "productnames" (entity
  13. Hi Caleb, Appreciate your effort in providing a reference model. Process Logic approach was useful. Thanks A lot. Regards, Alen
  14. Hi Sebastian I've made you an example, hope you find it helpful. Rds. Processing Time Countdown.spfx
  15. Hi, There is not a direct function to access how much Processing Time is left for an entity in the Processing Station, however you can use a workaround that I have attached in a model. The ability to access the function you are referring to in your post is on our Product Backlog, but not being able to access the direct function makes this difficult to achieve. Once you save off the time remaining in a ModelEntity level State Variable, you can use a separate process to compare the value to the "certain amount" that it could exceed and then perform other steps following that.
  16. Hi! I already know how to determine the expected operation time. The thing is, I want to know how much of that time is left at any given moment, in order to make a decision (to choose which server I should send the following entity). Thanks in advance
  17. I would recommend using a Data Table. One column could have all your entity types defined. The next column could be a Tally Statistic Element Reference Property. This column would match up the Tally statistic you want to correspond with the Entity Type. You could choose to auto-create these Tally Statistics from the Data Table. If you change the Tally Statistic Property's column Reference Type property from 'Reference' to 'Create', this will make the Tally Statistics for you. I recommend the Help page "Table-Based Elements (Auto-Create)" in Simio for more information. If your Entity Inst
  18. Thank you so much Liz! I understand exactly what you mean. However we thought that using Tallies would give more correct results for the average value calculations. I am also thining that running and add on process on "run ending" would allow me to calculate the distances statistics for all the entities even if they are not destroyed. Now I know how to calculate it but there are around 800 different product types. So I have to write 800 if conditions saying if decide, entity.type.name == "A" is true, Tally "distanceonforkliftA", on false exit, if decide entity.type.name == "B", Tally "distance
  19. Hi Alen, I have attached a model with two different approaches to this question. 1. RateTableApproach - the arrival data is stored within a Rate Table. Note: The Rate (events per hour) is influenced by offsets from when the model begins its run, not by the hour of the day. For example, a model begins its run at clock time 7:00:00, the first entry with a Starting Offset of Day 1, 00:00:00 and Ending Offset of Day 1, 01:00:00 would actually correspond to clock time 7:00:00-8:00:00 and not 00:00:00-01:00:00. 2. ProcessLogicApproach - the Arrival Mode is 'Interarrival Time' which i
  20. Hello! With your current approach, you need a way to aggregate the distance traveled per each entity. Each entity in the population is collecting their own distance traveled, but on the Output Statistic, you are looking at just the Instance, ProductA. The Instance will not automatically aggregate the population's values. If you were to specify a specific population index, for example ProductA[5].DistanceFunction, the Output Statistic would return the 5th entity in the population's distance function and you should see a value. However, making an Output Statistic for each population index w
  21. Hi Guys, I have a source producing the entities, which is processed by the server with a worker. server and worker are assigned to work schedule (7Hrs) (12am-7am) arrival model of the server is set to time varying arrival rate. to control the source on holidays. But with current scenario the source is producing the entities on off-shift time. Please help out with a logic, so that source is produces the entities matching to the timings of work schedule. Note: Simulation run is for a period of 1 year. Regards, Alen

  23. Hi Milad, It seems like you want to Subclass the vehicle object and add a new state to it. Cheers, Lucas.
  24. Hello, I am trying to define a state variable for all vehicles in my model in such a way that every vehicle passing a specific node, the time of entering the node will be saved in that state variable of that vehicle. I have already done it by assuming the vehicles as model entities (modelentity.ArrivalTime), but I could not manage to find a way by which I can use vehicles instead of modelentities. In other words, I am looking for a way whereby I will be able to define “Vehicle.ArrivalTime” for all vehicles. Thanks in advance for your answers
  25. Hi Everyone, I have 100s of different products in a warehouse and I want to get statistics for all of them such as distance travelled, number entered and exited. So I created the entity instances for each product automatically through data table. The entity.totaldistancetraveled function doesnt increase since the entity doesnt moveby itself but moved by forklift instead. So I have created a state variable called "distanceonforklift" and increased by the difference between the forklift total distance travelled value when entity exits and enters to forklift. I have also created a function
  26. HI jeff, is the periodic statistic available with professional edition of simio? Thanks, Alen
