New Software Release
Our latest release, Simio 11, is here!
firstname.lastname@example.org started following Goldratt's Matchstick & Die Simulation from "The Goal"?
Greetings, Trying to set up 2 separate networks (AGV and Tractor networks). I can create the Network Element in Definitions, but I cannot figure out how to assign the paths and nodes to the new networks. I tried the SetNetwork process step, but I get a runtime error: "The object or element reference 'Path 5' returned by property 'SetNetwork.EntityObject' is not of the expected type 'Entity'." How do you set a path's new Network name? Link to the model, with the runtime error (error comes from the OnRunInitialized process): https://www.dropbox.com/s/ehn33oxxed5ir43/2-Netowrks.spfx?dl=0 thanks for any help, Kurt
Has anyone tried a Simio model of the matchstick and die simulation from Goldratt's book, The Goal? It is very similar to the Penny Game from the Lean Aerospace Initiative training. Here is a reference about the matchstick simulation: http://maaw.info/MatchBowlExperiment.htm I've got a static simulation of the model in Excel, which works very well. But I would like to try it in Simio. The problem is a day "happening", in all in one event. I'm having trouble making everything happen concurrently. I've got 2 stations working, but it is not very pretty (attached, from Simio Academic version 6.102). This is much too complex for a teaching model. Somebody did it here in Witness and posted it as a video on YouTube. I would like to do something like this. Any ideas or advice for a static simulation like this in Simio? Thanks, Kurt PennyProcessing.spfx
