  1. Hello Simio Forum. I’m just starting a model which, for me, is a little unique as I have only used servers in a task capacity through steps. The new liquid ink model consists of 4 lines with each line made up of 3 steps each having a volume of 3.5 tonnes. 1. PreMix 2. Mill with a recirc tank 3. PostBlend I do not seem to be able to model this using servers because I cannot represent the transfer time of product occupancy between steps. I need this to show utilisation/uptime of the steps. But when I look at using "Flow" tanks I cant add the process tasks the same as servers (rows) i.e. gather weigh, milling time, QC etc.. Plus will need to add/link worker steps. Is there a middle ground between servers & tanks? Thanks Martin
