  1. One way is to manipulate the Entity Destination on the Output@ParkArea. Create a node list of Input@Warehouse. Set the Output@ParkingArea to Entity Destination Type:Select From List, Node List: NodeListName , and Blocked Destination Rule: Select Available Only. Set the Warehouse Initial capacity:3 and Input Buffer:0. Change Output Buffer at ParkArea back to Infinity and remove the add-on processes.
  2. Were you able to get the values to update? The table values are updating from a bound table when I tried it. Maybe the excel file wasn't saved when you ran the scenarios.
  3. It looks like both the person and bag are from the same EntityClass: ModelEntity. Assuming that is true, before the CreateStep put Assign: Variable: ModelEntity.StringStateName New Value: ModelEntity.Name On the Create Step, set Create Type:CopyAssociatedObject and EntityType:Bag. ALL the personEntity states and properties overwrite the bagEntity's. If bag entity has settings that shouldn't be overwritten then you can subclass ModelEntity to make a bagEntityClass. If the bagEntity is from a subclass of the ModelEntity, then only states and properties in common change. No additional Assign is needed. The person and bag EntityClasses could be unrelated. If so, an additional assign Step is needed after Create with Variable: BagClass.StringStateName1 & NewValue: ModelEntity.StringStateName Then only that state changes.
  4. It's in the Help file in Simio. You can press F1 or click the question mark in the upper right corner to access Help. An easy way is to search for Repeating Groups , select the Title Using A Custom Object In A Model scroll down until the Data Tables section.
  5. You can use a Monitor and an Add-on Process to prevent entities from entering the separator until the Member Outputbuffer is below a given amount, as shown in the attached model. Sample_Separator.spfx
  6. In Simio, all tables exist at the top level, e.g. in the main model. Any “outside” data that is referenced inside an object or submodel must be passed into the submodel via properties defined on that submodel. The mechanism for passing in sets of data like found in Tables is to define a Repeat Group property. This Repeat Group is then used to store the information from the top level model. The SimBit Top Level Model (from project Hierarchy With Tables) is an example of using repeating groups. In Help Using A Custom Object In A Model: Data Tables explains how to move your data from the submodel to the main model, map it to the Repeating Group and convert the submodel table to a repeating group in a few short step.
