  1. I want to show total change over time on a response in Experiment. But, I don't know how to type on Expression of response. I tried like this "Workstation1.ResourceState.TotalTime(ChangeoverLogic.TotalChangeoverTime)" , but it didn't work. How can I do?
  2. I already tried it. But there are no examples related in my case in Simbits and Examples. Isn't it possible to make changeover trigger like every 5 entities or 6 entities or 7 entities and so on? I tried many methods below. 1) data - changeover matrix --> but the error happened. I followed Principle11. Even I tried to modify the Principle11 file. However, when I make 4 entities, errors happened. Only when there are two entities A and B can be processed. 2) Definitions - states --> make a real state variable. After that, I made a process decide, assign, assign. For using Ranking rule, I made like decide(tmpM1<=5)-->assign(modelentity.priority+1)-->assign(tmpM1+1) repeat it. And if decide is false, decide(tmpM2<=5)-->assign(modelentity.priority+1)-->assign(tmpM2+1) repeat it. But I couldn't solve the changeover trigger like this method. Now, Changeover function is a problem and also trigger can't be made. I did my best enough. But actually, there are not enough datas for studying Simio yet.
  3. Thank you for your help. Though you tried to help me and I felt so thanks, it's not easy for me to understand the highlights. Can you attach some examples on my SI Discussion board??
  4. Because of my lousy English, it is not easy to communicate I mean a file, Principle14FlexibleBuffers in Examples\ProcessImprovementPrinciples. At this file, in Experiment function, we can set up the number of LocalBuffer. Like this, I want to make constrains the number of entity based on type going to workstation.
  5. I'm sorry, I mean that not about source. I want to make constrains about routing. about the number of going to workstation.
  6. Thank you. I found the dispatching rule --> least setup time. But, Can't I make constrains the number of input like as I said? For example, 10 of Entity1 come and after that, 10 of Entity2 come. And I modify the number of entity 10 to 9 or 8 or etc.
  7. Thank you for reply. I already know about RandomRow function. I want to know the point when the process of workstation is finished the entity is created and Question 1.
  8. I'm making a manufacturing model. I have four entities. I want to set 2 points on the below. 1. from transforter node to workstation, entities go to worksations which has the shortest queuing time including changeover time. If I can, I want to make constrains that the number of entities go to workstation. For example, 2 of A are proceed and 2 of B, 3 of A are proceed and 3 of B like this. 2. The entities are generated following ratio and also generated when the process of workstation is finished. Please let me know how can I do. Thank you.
