  1. I think the title is pretty straight forward, but is there any way to utilize a reference state to then concatenate onto a string? I have a large number of states I'm tracking and they're all a function of the EntityType itself. So for the sake of efficiency I was hoping I could somehow take advantage of the reference but so for no dice considering they're 2 completely different states. Any tips/tricks I'm just not thinking of?
  2. Just curious if there's an easier way to go about doing this... Long story short if I am representing multiple physical positions within capacity of a server and I create my own Gantt outside Simio, it's important for me to know WHICH resource (in this case which one of the servers) is utilized by each entity. I was trying to utilize Entity.Location.Parent.Server.Processing.Contents.IndexOfItem( Entity ) and assigning it to a state on the entity and then ultimately writing to an output table. However, this doesn't seem to be working accurately. It may be a timing issue on when this step is called, but is there a default function I'm just not aware of that could be of assistance?
  3. Actually I want to include input parameters in there as well.... Thought about writing some process logic to read through a table on run initialized, but I can't use a state for the rows to specifically look at for the starting/ending index for table value input parameters.
  4. Is there any way to import a list of properties from excel? What if I have a model with a predetermined list of variables that rather than manually creating them one by one, I could simply import from excel?
  5. Probably a stupid question, but doesn't the enabled just enable the start and not necessarily fire an event to START or STOP the timer?
  6. Is there a way to start/stop timers on a specific entity without creating a bunch of different events? The potential problem I see is that the reset timer event is general and would require a bunch of individual events.
  7. Any quick syntax I can use in a search step to have the match condition for the entity to NOT be itself?
  8. I can't seem to view this file as it was created in a later version and some of the functionality differs. Thanks for your help. I'll see if there are any simbits on gates
  9. So this may be an easy answered question, but I'm at a roadblock. I want to have an entity wait in a server until a specific date and time. Once that date and time is reached within the model run, I need it to fire and move to the next server. This would be easy if it were one entity, but essentially a batch all arrives at different times and then needs to wait until that date/time to ALL move at the same time into a combiner. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
