1. ## Entity occupies more server capacity based on probability

Hello everyone, I would like to model a situation where an entity, on entering a server, seizes more than one capacity of the server based on some predetermined probability. Any thoughts on this would be much appreciated. Thank You! Best Regards, Sumanth
2. ## Arrival Pattern Question

Thank you everyone, it works fine now!
3. ## Arrival Pattern Question

Hello Thank You for your help, i was able to implement it!! I have a slight snag though, in the rate tables it only allows me to enter arrival events per hour. I have daily sum of arrivals (say x). If i assume mean arrivals per hour are the same and use the typical sum(x)/24, the model underestimates the total arrivals per day. I understand that simio uses exponential distribution to randomly genrate a number. Do you have any suggestion for me to retrieve arrivals per hour from daily arrivals to input into simio? Thank You!
4. ## Arrival Pattern Question

I tried using a state variable and created a process which is triggered by a timer each day. Within the process, i used 24 alternating assign an delay steps, with a delay of 1 hour. In each assign step I assigned a different value for the rate factor. Then using a table I introduced a state property associated to the source. I would think this should work, but it crashes every time I try to run the model. Any Help? Thanks in advance!
5. ## Arrival Pattern Question

Hi Katie, Thank you for your response. Im not really familiar with how this can be done. For example, I want the rate factor to change by each hour of the day. The rate hour can be the same for all days, but the rate factor must vary between each hour. Is it possible to do this? Thanks!
6. ## Arrival Pattern Question

Hello Everyone, I would like to use patient daily arrivals to the ED. I have daily totals, but I want them to follow a pattern (eg. at midnight the arrival is much less than during noon). I am trying to include future forecasts (my forecasts are daily forecasts and not hourly) and this is why I need to somehow input daily numbers into rate table but also make it follow the pattern. Would really appreciate help with this! Thank You! Best regards, Sumanth
7. ## Server Occupancy for each day

Hello Martin, Thank you so much for your help! It worked Brilliantly. I have another question, I want to incorporate patient daily arrivals to the ED. I have daily totals, but I want them to follow a pattern (eg. at midnight the arrival is much less than during noon). I am trying to include future forecasts (my forecasts are daily forecasts and not hourly) and this is why I need to somehow input daily numbers into rate table but also make it follow the pattern. Would really appreciate help with this! Thank You! Best regards, Sumanth
8. ## Server Occupancy for each day

Hello Everyone, I am trying to model hospital inpatient units. Each unit I utilize a server object and give it a capacity based on the number of beds in that unit. I want to know how I can track the number of beds occupied in each unit for each day (I am trying to model 2 weeks). I need to figure this out in order to schedule staff for those units based on (bed occupied to nurse) ratios. Any help with this would be much appreciated. Thank You! Best, Sumanth
9. ## Resources perform tasks while idle

Hello everyone, I am trying to model a specialty clinic. I want to know how to model the nurses to perform additional tasks while they do not attend to patients in order to track their utilization. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you. Best,
10. ## Scheduled arrivals and no shows

Hey guys, I am trying to model a clinic with scheduled patient arrivals by provider (different types of patients for each provider). Could you give me tips on how to model this? I have the patients scheduled by hour of the day and the schedule for week. Another questions I have is how do I include the probability of 'no show', that is, a patient is scheduled, but does not turn up or his/her appointment. Help would be much appreciated. Thank You! Best,
11. ## Server goes off shift after processing current units

I have a server that works based on a workshcedule. It goes off shift for only 3 hours a day. I would like it to go off shift only after processing the units that have already entered the server. I am not sure of the logic for this. Any help/advice would be much appreciated. Thank You!
