  1. Hi I am wondering if it is possible to show all the attributes of an object interactively when the model is running. For example click on an tank and shows it's properties like current level, inflow rate, outflow rate, etc.
  2. Hi I am trying to simulate a pump in a processing plant. But I am not sure which object should I use to simulate a pump (or similar flow processing equipment that is not a container) and its reliability. Any suggestions? Thanks!
  3. I am trying to simulate the failure on a tank's output flow, and I have following questions: I have MTTR (mean time to repair) and MTBF (mean time between failure) data for the out flow failure on tank1. But this reliability data is based on processing time (or flow time, not the calendar time). Is there a way to simulate the flow node failure based on processing time? I tried to use timer element but it doesn't work. I used monitor element but not sure how to cumulate the processing time for a flow node. Control flownode based on flow time.spfx

    Trigger event based on flow time

    Thanks for your post, that does work for tracking the "enabled" time of a flownode. Is there a way to track the cumulated "running time" of a flow node? I want to exclude the "idle" time from the total "enabled" time of the node and only count when there is flow running through.
  5. I want to trigger an event based on the cumulated flow time (or the cumulated time when flowregulator.enabled = true) of a flow node. I tried to use the Timer and set the interval type of "TimeInState", but it doesn't work. Any ideas?
