  1. Dear Jeff, I've used the Task sequence directly in the property Processing time of the server. Maybe the reason why the interruption does not function. I'll try your approach by adding the tasks rather from the Definitions windows and see if it works. Thank you for your help ! Flora
  2. Hi, I’m using a Process type: Task sequence in my model at Server 1. I’d like to interrupt the server each 12 hours for 4 hours and resume the entity being processed later. I’ve used a Timer and an Interrupt step which work perfectly only when the Process type is Specific time. Therefore, I tried with a token to obtain the Interruption at the server. I made a process (InterruptServer) doing so but I feel like I’m missing some understanding here. I’ve received an error message as you can see in the small model. Anyone knows how to solve this error? Thank’s Flora InterruptSeve
  3. Hello, I have a process Vehicle1_EnteredNode that moves a vehicle and seizes the two workers needed to operate. The two workers work from 8 to 12 and 13 to 17. When they are off the schedule, process AAInterruptCarMove is used to interrupt and release correctly the server and the vehicle. To make the Interrupt process, I’ve checked simbit VehicleStopsWhenServerOffshift. Then, I’ve used process AAInterruptGrutierEtAccrocheur to interrupt and release the two workers. The problem is, the two workers don’t get released. Instead, they go offshiftBusy which I don’t want because while OffshiftBus
  4. I was able to fix it. The logic behind the processes was correct. The problem was the decide Step I had before the create Step of the entities. The state variables I used in the Decide Step were not updated somewhere else in the model so the condition was not respected. That is why the entity were not created ^^. Thank you for your answer.
  5. Unfortunately I can't upload the model because I've used confidential info in it from a company. Thank you for your help though. Have a good day.
  6. I already have a transfer step that transfers the entity to a specific node. But thank you though.
  7. Hello, In a process A, I’m Firing an event that triggers a process B. In the process B, I use a Create step to create an entity. Also, process A is being executed with the Execute step through another process C. My problem is that the entity does not get created. The steps I made seem correct but the entity does not get created. Any hint from someone who sees the error or someone who has ever encountered this situation? Thank you, Flora Master candidate
  8. Hello, I have two workers that are seized whenever my vehicle is allocated. I’ve added a process to stop the vehicle and the workers when offshift. They get stopped but during the offshift time, the workers that are offshift (released), move on the path. Is there a way I can prevent that from happening? To fix that, I’ve suspended their movement and resumed their movement when back onshift. Their movement are suspended but they don’t resume moving when onshift. Is there something I’m missing out? Thank you in advance, Flora
  9. Thank you for your reply! But the file does not open. Here is the message displayed. Can you resend it please ? Thank you, Flora
  10. Hello, In my model I’ve made entity arrival mode to be On event and I’ve created an event named CommandeEvent in the Definition ==>event section. In order to action the event, I’ve created a process called ProcessEvent in which I have a decide step followed by a fire step that fire the CommandeEvent if the condition in the Decide step is respected. But when I run the model, the entities are not created. Is there something I should do differently or add ? Thank you, Flora
  11. Hello Dave, I have a problem a little similar to this. Regarding this part of you answer "tally an observation", how do you do that? I've created a state statistic and a state variable I used but I still don't find the result anywhere. Thank you, Flora
  12. Hello, I want workers in my simulation to work from 8 AM to 5 PM and from 5 PM to 2 AM (in real life they are two different teams of workers). The goal of this is to illustrate two shifts of work. In data ==> Day Patterns, I’ve added the Work period: from 8 AM to 5 PM and from 5 PM to 2 AM. On the second work period, I’ve received an Error message saying “Duration must not result in a Work Period that spans multiple days”. Is there another way I can illustrate the fact that I’ve two shifts of work ? Thank you, Flora
  13. Hello, I would like to make a server disappear when I finish processing entities with it. Would there be a way I can do this ? Thank you, Flora
  14. Hello, I’m using a monitor to determine the re-order point of a material. The way I put it is that whenever I have actual stock (physical and in transit) that is less than the re-order point, then I make an order. Sometimes, I have to order a quantity that is not enough to fill the actual stock, up to the re-order point. When I get in such situations, the monitor does not trigger a new order because it functions when actual stock decreases and then hits the re-order point. Here are the parameters of the monitor I indicated in the picture below. For example, my actual stock is 50 un.
