  1. I would recommend reading up on State Statistics (Definitions Window) in the Help because that will likely meet your needs.
  2. This might not meet your needs exactly but hopefully it can provide some ideas that can help you move forward. You can use the Work Schedules in Simio and the Value column in these schedules, to dictate which Server the worker should go to during that hour. This example also uses the Evaluate Seize Attempt process on the Worker so that the Worker rejects all of the jobs that are not at the appropriate Server. If you wanted to Subclass the Server, you could add a Property to it and then check to see if the current Schedule Value matches the property on the Server, instead of using the Serve
  3. Yes, you can reference a model state within the ModelEntity logic. In order to do this, the ModelEntity object will need to be aware of the model's state variable and to do this, you must create a property on the ModelEntity object definition. The property should be a State Property and this can be found under the list of Standard Properties. Within the ModelEntity's process logic, you would use this new State Property to pull in the latest value of that state. When you place down an instance of the ModelEntity into the Facility window of the Model, you will need to populate that new State
  4. I would suggest that you create four new States in the model, one for each type of entity, to keep track of the number of each type that have entered the InputBuffer of Workstation2. Next, create another column in your table that is a StateProperty column. Populate this column with the four new States that you created. In the State Assignment property of Workstation2, in the OnEntered assignment, you can increment the appropriate State by simply setting the State Variable Name to Table1.StateProperty and the New Value to Table1.StateProperty + 1. Because the appropritate row
  5. Industrial Case Studies Track at WinterSim 2014 This is an opportunity for professionals across all industries to share real world simulation projects and learn how simulation is increasing productivity and efficiencies in business today. Do you have a simulation project that you’d like to share with your colleagues but you do not have time to write an entire paper? Or perhaps you missed the paper submission deadline for the Winter Simulation Conference (WSC) 2014? If you can summarize the project in a short 2 page abstract and a brief 30 minute presentation, then you should
  6. The difference between Copy to Edit and Subclassing from the library is that when a change is made to the original object's definition, an object that was copied is not updated with the new changes in the original object's definition. Whereas a subclassed object will inherit the changes to all processes that were not "overridden". There are some items in the object that are greyed out and cannot be overwritten when it’s been subclassed. In this case, the only way to change these things is use the Copy To Edit functionality.
  7. The Server is currently set up to look at the table to find it's processing time, but you haven't told the server which row to look at in the table. Therefore, you need to put some logic into the model to check the current value of the model property and based on that value, set the correct row in the table. One example for how to do this would be to create an Add On Process in the "Run Initialized" Add On Process Trigger of the Server. In this process, you would place a Search step that searches that Table. It would have a Match Condition of rpUserOption == tabUserOptionInfo.UserOpt
  8. What appears to be happening is that both the original token leaving the Original segment and the new token, leaving the Found segment, are both associated with the same Entity and therefore the Transfer Steps are trying to transfer the same entity. This is shown in the Trace when it says which entity it is trying to transfer. Therefore, when the second Transfer step attempts the transfer, it says that it cannot transfer because the entity is already in the middle of being transferred. It is difficult to determine why the process logic is having both tokens transfer the same entity, but the
  9. The small step that you are missing is in addition to assigning acceleration, you also need to assign an acceleration duration. This is done by assigning a value to "Modelentity.Movement.AccelerationDuration". Let us know if you have additional questions on this.
  10. Adam, Instead of having the TransferNode reference a NodeList property on the entity, could you have it reference a NodeListProperty in a Table? So, instead of having a Node Property in the Table, have a NodeListProperty instead. And populate the Table with NodeList1, NodeList2, etc. Have your TransferNode reference Table2.NodeListProperty1 and then depending on what row the incoming entity has set to that Table, they'll select the appropriate NodeList. And when you want to change which node list an entity uses, you just change their row reference into that table. I made a few small cha
  11. Update: As of Sprint 65, the software now contains DateTime functions that return a number representing a minute, hour, day, month or year based on a datetime input (such as TimeNow). There are also additional functions that convert a datetime to/from a string and those that let you determine which day of the week, month or year corresponds to a given datetime. See Help for more information on these new functions. Examples of these functions are: DateTime.Month(datetime) - which will return the month component, expressed as an integer between 1 and 12, for the specified datetime value (
