  1. I am wondering if there is a way to end all tasks in a task sequence when a ModelEntity transfers out of the station. I tried setting the Token Action On Associated Object Transferred to EndProcess but I guess that only works upon exiting the current step.
  2. Simulation Setting: Hospital Situation: In a hospital setting tasks are done in a preferred order on a patient, currently using processing tasks functionality to accomplish this. However if a certain task can not be done due to a resource constraint they should continue with the task profile but queue the task to be done when available. For example: if a patient needs to be intubated but no qualified person is available, the patient should continue with the task profile but should continue with trying to seize a qualified person, and when they can the task could continue as normal. Is th
  3. If the station that you are searching is filled with Users with a entity reference property that holds the order you should use: Candidate.User.Entity_Reference_State_Variable == The_Order_Entity That would also explain the Error, Simio is saying that you specified the candidates as Orders but the entity found in the station is of type User, and therefore an error has occurred. Now if the order has an entity state variable that holds the user you could use a Create step to create a new token with the Order.User_state_variable as the new associated object and create the
  4. You are correct that it will keep the resource seized until after the delay. A work around would be to subclass the server and change the PerformProcessingTask. All you would need to do is move the execute task to after the release, then it should release the resource and then do the execute (Your Add-on process).
  5. Assuming you are are using the prebuilt task sequencing logic in the server you could just add an add-on-process either after the predecessor task or before the successor task that delays for the given amount of time. If you are using a table to read these tasks add a column for the delay, make a model level process with a delay value of TaskTable.Delay. Then reference this process in the Before starting task or after completing task of the task sequence.
  6. I need a way to access the worker seized for a given task in a task finished triggered add-on process. part of the functionality I am trying to achieve is when a specific task is done (not the last task) I want to assign that worker as to a ModelEntity.TransferWorker, reserve them, and use the worker to transport them (referencing ModelEntity.TransferWorker in the output node) Information about setup: Multiple tasks being assigned at once, this prevents ModelEntity.SeizedResources.LastItem from being useful Task resource is chosen from list, which differs for every task,
  7. My model currently reads tasks from a table and I am trying to model material consumption. For each task there are groups of materials: A, B, C, and priority values: 1, 2, 3. To complete a task, only one material type from each group A, B, and C must be consumed, and the order they are consumed in should be based of the priority. For example, if task one had entries like the table below, if all materials were available, materials 1,4,6 would be consumed. If material 1 was no longer available materials 2,4,6 would be used, and if material 6 was not available the task could not be done. The m
  8. Is there a way to keep them in the loop until the transport arrives, there will never be a point where they are done with the loop until the transport gets there. Right now if they are in the loop I can assign them a modelentity state variable (boolean), then when a vehicle arrives it initiates a process that has a search step with the search condition modelentity.BooleanStateVariable==1 with a return limit of the capacity of the vehicle. the found entities must either interrupt the task or process they are currently doing depending on where they are in the loop and be moved by a worker to th
  9. We are building a model of a medical facility where some patients need to be evacuated out of the model using a vehicle. In its current state, when a patient is in the ward or ICU, it will be determined if they need to evacuate. While they are waiting for an evacuation transport, they will be in a task sequence loop. We would like some way for the patient to seize a spot on the transport, perform the tasks loops, and once the transport arrives at the facility transfer node, the patients break out of their loop, and seize a worker to be carried to the vehicle. We have patients
