  1. Hi - My model has a vehicle that is going 'on demand' through a network of paths. It picks up items and people for delivery. I need it to pick up as it sequences other nodes enroute, so each trip is efficient. I am getting errors in my Add On Processes. Once the vehicle is loaded, I define the current capacity as the model capacity minus the loaded entities. And then once the vehicle sequences another node, I'd like it to add entities up to the open number of seats. Could you please take a look? Current.For.spfx
  2. Hi Ryan, I think that worked. Running correctly now. Thank you,
  3. Hi Ryan, Thank you for the corrections. As always, spot-on advice, that is very appreciated. I do have a few follow up questions. - Do I set the Initial Sequence property to 'Sequence1' or do I need to tell it the row too? 'Sequence1.Sequence'? Sequence 1 is working, but just wondering. - In the SimBit, Entity Follows Sequence With Relational Tables, there are three types of Entities that all flow through the same source with the Source Property, Table Row Referencing, pulling from the JobTable with the Row Number 'JobTable.ProductMix.RandomRow.' For my model, I have two different entities and the source Bldg is supposed to pull BOTH entities with the Table Row Referencing, "JobsTable" with Row Number: "JobsTable.NumberWorkers.RandomRow." But when the model is run, only one entity is ever used. The Table has an ExpressionProperty of Random.Triangular(3,6,9). Is that the problem? The SimBit's table was an actual number. I tried replacing the Expressions with actual numbers and the Entity switched to use the other one but I am still not able to get half the 34 to be one Entity and the other half to be the other Entity. - How do I get the Vehicle to carry its max capacity? The capacity is set to 6, and it only carries up to 4 entities around at any time. This is incorrect, as the Entities are supposed to be grouped into work teams of Random.Triangular(3,6,9) for their initial Source output move. Afterwards they can be individuals or work teams. The Bldg has the Entity Type defined as the JobsTable.Specialty so it should pull from one or the other (like the below mentioned SimBit), and the with Entities Per Arrival Set at 35; and the Entities themselves are set to a population maximum of 17 each and I get a Runtime error of maximum number exceeds limit for the entities. Why doesn't it hit the limit and then pull from the other Entity? - I'm confused about the network you mentioned above. I thought the nodes had to be linked directly (output to input node). So the busy nodes have a lot of paths radiating out from them and it makes it a little messy. Is there a cleaner way to show the routing? Thank you,
  4. Hi Ryan, -The model gets stuck at about an 1 hour into it. Can't get it past the vehicle going back to the 'Bldg,' as seen when I track the vehicle. -The distributions are all random triangular with set parameters in the Sequence1 Table. The idea was that the 35 people/Entities would arrive at the Bldg Source and as Entities the JobsTable would assign a random triangular number of workers to a job and then start ferrying them per the sequence in the Sequence1 Table from the Key Column from the Bldg. The vehicle can carry 6 people but it seems to only carry 4 at a time. Also, the ferrying is completed at about an hour and the vehicle just stops at the Bldg with 4 passengers. Instead, it needs to continue ferrying by having the entities 'call' the vehicle to their location to continue the route sequence, through LunchBreak, and then get eliminated at the EndOfShift node. 11May.v2.spfx
  5. Hi - I have a vehicle that moves through several servers, one of which is 'LunchBreak;' however, when running the model, the vehicle parks at LunchBreak and the people do not get off and nothing more happens the entire run. Thoughts as to why it gets stuck here?
  6. Thank you for the explanation. Yes, this model has just one bus. When I need to add another, I'll look into the storage. Thank you,
  7. Hi- Is there a good video tutorial on utilizing the Dashboard Reports? Thanks,
  8. Hi Ryan, Yes, there is a sequence table to route the entities and lunch is in the sequence. I'll look at the run time, or reduce other time to ensure there is enough time to get them through. And, thank you for #2, that worked.
  9. Hi - 2 questions: 1. My model has people coming on shift, being transported to various locations, and then ending their shift at the sink near the source. However, I need them to get picked up and have ALL cycled through the lunch break server. Right now, out of the 35 people on shift, only 1 person got lunch, and only 6 people had their end of shift. How do I constrain the server to ensure the vehicle drops everyone at the lunch server and then the EndOfShift? 2. I would like to model 2, 12-hour shifts (each with the 35 people). I need all 35 to show up at the same time. This is my source Entity Arrival Logic. How do I change it to have two sets of 35 show 12 hours apart?
  10. Ryan, That worked, thank you!
  11. Ryan, Appreciate the tips. Just wondering if I need to add another path or will the entity that balks and walks take the road path that is already in the model when I put an input node in the 'Renege Node Name? Or is the transfer to the input node immediate? Thank you,
  12. Hi- I have symbols of people loaded and a symbol of a truck inside the model and they are also visible on the model background. How to I replace the entity triangle with the people image, and the standard vehicle with the truck? I went to Properties: Vehicle: Animation: Current Symbol: and changed from Vehicle.ResourceState to the Truck but Truck was unrecognized and caused an error.
  13. Thank you for the tip on a time path. Do I change my current paths to have a time path for just the portion that is within the 2 minutes? Is there a way to put a range ring around the pickup location to designate the 2 min range without changing the paths? Or is there a different way to solve it with the Process Map?
