  1. Maybe my formulation was not clear enough: I am asking whether it is possible to memorise a state value for each minute (in a table or array) and read the values of this on a later timestep?
  2. I have a question regarding the use of a model state value at a specific timestep. I used a Tallystatistic and processes to calculate the output of a server for a specified interval, based on the Simbit Hourly Statistics. This works, however I dont want the value of the same timestep, but I want to use it two timesteps later. So for example if a server A output variable equals 10 at timestep t=1, I want to save this value as part of the input for server B for timestep t=3. So the value should be 'memorised' for two timesteps. I was wondering whether there are any suggestions on how to model this?
  3. Thank you, i used the server1.failure.active expression. However, i want to use the average server productivity and not an entity dependent time. How would you express the productivity of a server in a model state variable?
  4. Hi all, I am wondering of there is a way to create something comparable to a"wait" resourcestate. Maybe by defining or monitoring the "waiting time" of a server. Thankyou in advance!
  5. Thank you for your response! But im not sure: Is this also possible if the model is extended to 6 servers? So each server processing time is dependent upon the one in front? I thought I would need to make different state variables for every server (machine) For example:a machine in a production line needs to slow down with a delay if the machine upfront has reduced or zero speed because of failure.
  6. Hi all, I made a model of a production line (starting with 2 servers) and I am wondering whether it is possible to change the processing time of the second server based on the actual output of the first server. Theoretically seen the processing time of the server 2 = Speed of server 1 * E , in which E is a fixed formula (connected to server 2) to correct the speed. So if the first server performs according to expectation (without failures) for example 40 the processing speed of the second server is equal to 40*E with a delay of the conveyor time between server 1 and server 2. If the server has failure and thus have a lower output (for example, 30), I want to change the processing time of the second server accordingly to 30*E with a delay of the conveyor time between server 1 and server 2. Does anybody have an idea of how to do the following: How can you monitor the actual output of the first server at each timestep? Is it possible to fix the proposed formula and use it in an add-on process? How can you take the conveyor time delay into account (using a delay step in the add-on process?)? I am quite new to the software so I am not sure whether it is possible to model this in Simio. Thank you in advance!
