    import Routing data automatically

    Hi, Not that I know of, I would have been useful if one could have refreshed a table during a run.

    Save with .dll

    Hi, It would be great if one could save a model in a way to make it include the .dll files used (Custom Steps), enabling custom steps for model users in a much cleaner way with minimal custom setup. Currently it shows that there is a missing step and just skips the execution of the step. Any others suggestions on how to achieve this would be appreciated. Regards, Willem

    License Switching

    Hi, Not sure if it is currently possible, but the options to switch to lower license of Simio to test whether a model will be executable in that license (i.e. be able to change the license from enterprise to design). Regards, Willem
  4. Hi, I agree, but would like to be able to convert nodes to vertices.

    import Routing data automatically

    Hi All I know about is the DB Read/Write Add-In which allows you to import and export during run time, see user defined steps. Although the performance of the step is quite slow, I modified it in a very backyard mechanic kind of way to read multiple entries at once, seems to work, it does clash with the current Step but can easily be fixed. Regards, Willem DbReadWrite.zip
  6. Hi, The following would really be useful The ability to set the Row of an input parameter (make it look at a subset of data) Auto-create input parameters and assign parameters (currently possible for objects and elements but not for input parameters / properties Cap distributions min and max values Option to ignore all zero values in a Table for an input parameter We also see the following advantages: Make models more traceable and user friendly Eliminate the need for distribution fitting Eliminate mistakes due to faulty distributions Save All the time of fitting distributions, no need for external fitting software Link directly to data without the need to fit distributions (Data driven modelling) Regards, Willem
  7. Hi, Attached are two simple steps: The first allows the user to create a folder within the current directory of the Model, used to organise output files and to allow quick transfer of models. The step also check whether the folder already exist. The second is a step used to resample from a distribution if values fall outside of its minimum and maximum marks (essentially capping a distribution), there is a risk of forming a infinite loop if the distribution never falls within the min and max. It would have been way better to implement such a step as a function in Simio. Regards, Willem CreateFolder&TestDist.zip Code.zip

    File Reference

    Hi, We would like to write to a single file via several objects, is this currently possible? We envisage that it would be possible if it was possible to create a file reference property, any ideas? Regards, Willem

    Getting Access to Design-Time when in Run-Time

    Hi Dan, We would like to create a add-in step to export all properties and tables at the beginning of the run. We want to write out all die inputs/tables to .csv files in in a relative folder to where the model is (i.e. a results folder within the folder that the model is in). I was thing of some kind of combination between the write step and the export add-in. Regards, Willem

    Getting Access to Design-Time when in Run-Time

    Hi Dan, Thanks for the recent responses on the API forum, the API information quality has really been improved. I just changed you model to show what we would like to be able to do. See attached. My wording should have said whilst using the experiment runner. Also do you think there is any chance of being able to run the step without first having to execute the add-in? Maybe through adding an element? Regards Willem ModelAccessDesignExample.spfx

    Getting Access to Design-Time when in Run-Time

    Hi, Is it possible to make it work within the scenario runner as well? We would like adapt the add-in to export the inputs of the model for each scenario/experiment and run, as we often get confused and sometimes spend hours looking for a problem and then find out it was the inputs. The idea would be that for any run at any time, one can first look at whether the inputs was truly correct or not. It would also be beneficial when you revisit an old model that you can see the inputs used to get to a particular result. It is currently possible to manually write out each input, but often there are multiple tables and one can often just forget about adding an important input. Regards, Willem
  12. Hi, Look at the "Task Sequence And Worker In Table (from project Task Sequence And Worker)" Simbit. Regards.

    Waiting for Resource

    Hi, You can use a wait step, waiting for the resource.released (doesn't appear in autocomplete, you have to type it in) A slightly worse method would be to scan the resource state to check when it becomes idle... Regards, Willem

    An Index Question

    Hi, Try "Math.If(CurrentStation != Nothing, CurrentStation.Contents.IndexOfItem(ParentObject), 0)" Regards, Willem

    Hi, It would be useful to have a divide function, currently Math.If(Denominator > 0, Numerator/Denominator, 0). Would be nice to have Math.Divide(Numerator,Denominator,Results if division by Zero) Regards, Willem
