  1. Thank you! I will have to do it via the Start/Finish Task add-on processes.
  2. A few possible issues. The SimBit you referenced is only for Enterprise Edition, I have Design Edition. Also I am using data tables for my task sequence and resources, is there a way to use the Add-On Process Triggers in the data tables? Thanks in advance.
  3. Is there a way to output the times for each task in a task sequence? I have several tasks that are performed at the same server (location) and I would like to know what the time the entity spends on each task.
  4. I have followed the simbit Servers Using Task Sequence with Data Tables Job Shop as it is close to what I want to do. I have a process to model where most of the work is done in 1 physical location. There are 2 problems I am running into: 1) Some tasks once completed should trigger another server to start processing (Ex. when task 4 completes it should trigger tasks c and d and server 2) 2) I have tasks 1, 2, 3 and 4 that can run in parallel. I also have tasks a, b, c and d that can run in parallel. However task 4 needs to complete before c and d can start, 1 has to complete before a
  5. I am trying to model a repair process. A major part of this process is the time to get the tools from their storage locations to the machine that needs repair. My thought was to have the tools be modeled as entities that a fork lift or worker has to go grab and bring back to the server. The problem is I need to wait for all those entities to be there before the server can start to process. Then I want to destroy the entities because they aren't actually being processed (only 1 entity would be processed as a representation). Does anyone have a suggestion on how this might be accomplis
  6. I have a subclassed vehicle that I created based on this example. After updating to 197 it doesn't work, anyone else having similar experience? I am trying to recreate my vehicle but when the operator gets to the vehicle, the vehicle disappears and the operator just stands there and nothing else happens.
  7. I have a system with 3 steps. At each step a certain amount of product is process and batched (using a combiner) on to a pallet. I have to assign a sequence table to the member entities and the parent (pallet) entities. However this is resulting in some batches sitting at a combiner because the pallet follows the sequence instead of going to the next batch ready if the pallet is empty. Any thoughts on how to handle this? If there is no call for an empty pallet the pallets could stay where they are or go to a specific location.
  8. Thanks! That got the simulation a little farther. I went back through the example that I found and missed some logic, so I added that. Seems to be working now, I just need to handle the deadlock situations on bidirectional paths and should be good.
  9. I am trying to model forklifts moving around that require a worker to operate. I found this example under SI Shared items and have tried to recreate as best I can. However, my model is complex in that I have multiple workers and forklifts. I want the forklift to choose an available worker. I can get it to work with 1 specific worker, but when I choose from list of operators I get this error: I have tried all the different Travel Mode options. Any ideas on how to correct this?
  10. In that picture yes most of them were closed (tanks 2-4 have a 0 next to them). I did find that the monitor wasn't triggering correct and fixed that so it gets a little further but now stops at this point with the flow nodes all open: I do have a an execute system flush step that gets executed to enable all the flow nodes. I will continue to go through the model trace to see if I can find something in there.
  11. I have been able to get everything to work so far with the exception of this last issue. At the very last step in this system not all 4 tanks will be full but I need to have them empty. However my model gets stuck and won't empty. Below is where the model ends but I need to override my logic to wait for all the tanks to be full at this point. I have tried using monitor, state variables, wait steps, scan steps and it still stops at this point. Any ideas?
  12. Interesting. Thanks. I have checked the entire system and all but the last step have the same flow rate, as it should be. The last step has a slower flow rate but what is interesting is that the simulation says it is going to take far more years to complete than if you just calculate by hand what it should take to drain at the slow flow rate. My apologies as I am not as well versed in the flow library as I am the standard library, but I set up an output statistic to get the flow rate in gallons per minute using the following: Input@FlowSink1.FlowRegulator.CurrentVolumeFlowIn / (
  13. So new question, what are the units of an expression in a status plot? I am using this expression: Input@FlowSink1.FlowRegulator.CurrentVolumeFlowIn.Rate I would expect that rate to be the set initial maximum flow rate however the number I get from that expression is much less than what I assigned as the flow rate. Unless it is not in the same units that I have set in the flow regulators and project.
