  1. You can use paths’ selection weighs property to set these kinds of proportions. İts default values will do for you. İf you Want to send 1/4 to counter 1 and the remaining to counter 2 you should set the weight of path to counter 1 to 1 and 3 to counter 2.

    Entity arrival

    I attached a different solution to your problem to show how the same results can be gained via totally different approaches. 100 entities_different.spfx
  3. If they are not required the best way to avoid deadlock situations is to use two separate paths each for either direction.
  4. tyr other options from the dropdown list of "From" property of transfer step.
  5. Right click on conveyor click "change ending note" and left click on whichever node you want.
  6. You can place some enough transfer nodes at different distances and directions (In freespace it will be hard to stop modelentity object and seize the server object. This can be quite challenging task). Then you can randomly send the modelentities to one of these transfer nodes (This is for sending entities some vector away from the source). Then, define an entered add-on process trigger for each transfer nodes and place a move step onto this add-on process. In resource movement request of this step define object type specific (or from list), object name any server (or from list you set), and destination node as the transfer node itself. Then, you can try seize step to or transfer step to send the entity onto server object. You have to try some options.
  7. I've include my suggestion in the model attached. I assigned low priorities to each vehicle types. Then, select vehicles according to these priorities. It seems it works? SmallModel.spfx
  8. I do not know the details but if it is appropriate set "must simultaneously batch" property as true under the batching logic section. Then, add a "Release Batch Early Triggers" and set "Trigger Type" as "Event Based" and "Triggering Event Name" as Timer1.Event. Then, define Timer element and trigger it at exactly 9:00 AM.
  9. You should use data tables for creating such a large number of modelentities. You can populate your data table by binding it to an excel file or a database etc.. Then, examine the "Inventory Replenish" related simbits for how to increase and decrease inventory levels of each part. You can determine specific inventory replenishment policy accordingly as well.
  10. First rank the vehicles accoding to your preference in your node list (My vehicle first then the standard vehicles). Then, setting "reservation method" as "reserve closest" and "selection goal" as "preffered order" and "selection condition" as "Candidate.Vehicle.ResourceState!=1" will work for you.
  11. Drag and drop an ModelEntity into the facility layout. Then, select ModelEntity and see "Maximum number in system limit" property under "Population" section of properties window. Set this property as how many entities you desire throughout the simulation run.

    In fact everthing is ok except you did not placed the subclassed sink objects (mysink type objects) into the facility layout. Probably you forgot to drag them from the project library (at the left bottom window) to the facility layout. I attached the fixed version of the same file. Do not hesitate for asking more. cutoff.spfx

    Hi Nadere, I assume that in "Data" tab you have defined a data table. Select "Data" tab. From "Schema" ribbon insert a "State" type data column from by selecting "Property" dropdown list. Now, you should be able to include "Sink.StaNumberEntered" state variable. Do not hesitate for asking more.

    In the attached model, entities are dispatched according to some "Mysink" objects' inputbuffer entered cutoff values (predetermined values). I intentionally put these cutoff values values in the table to show how you can use state variables inside a table. Also, I intentionally place some steps seperately to increase understandability of the model. Due to having limited time I did not test the model. You can fine tune the model and develop it in a more compact manner. Time In System considering cutoff values.spfx
