    Cannot reference repeating groups?

    I had the same problem with the simbit. Then I opened that Entity_Types screen and closed it. Problem was gone and model run. :? Weird The simbit used the SetRow step to populate the table and Help confirms that it is the right way. You probably should use Search step to select the proper row.

    Cannot reference repeating groups?

    Simio Help on "Repeat Groups" says: "You can set a reference to the contents of a Repeat Group Property, similarly to how you set a reference to a Data Table." So, I understand that your "ListaEntradas" is like a table of properties, not a property itself. That´s why your custom component does not accept that reference. There is a simbit exemplifying repeat group: SourceWithCustomEntityTypeProperty.

    Entity Animation/Size Scale

    The entities have the parameters Size, Size.Height, Size.Lenght and Size.Width. They are state variables, so you can assign new values during run time. Does it help? I added a simple example. Eduardo
  5. James. Good points about internal references and xml inspection. So, I learned that we can have in Simio two different objects (different internal ID) with the same name when the second object is loaded. Could Simio prevents two objects with same name in a model when loading? Or it would bring little value and more complications?
  6. [quote="jdoran"]I will hazard a guess that those "components" reference a model id for "ModelEntity". When there is a ModelEntity in the same project that is linked, it will reference that specific one, otherwise it will look for any model of the same type or name.[/quote] That's not quite true. I removed the "ModelEntity" from the component and used the one from the calling project. The component didn't find the reference.
  7. JD Take a look at the attached example. Eduardo.

    Current Size Index

    Seems to be similar to http://www.simio.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1107
  9. [quote="Pedro"]This way the component's user will not be abstracted from our component's inner workings [/quote] Now is better (see attached). Notice that I removed the ModelEntity from Navigation on LoadingComp4.spfx. The Model is using the also loaded CompEntity from Comp4.spfx.
  10. Pedro. Take a look at the attached. Now it is working when object is loaded. Eduardo.
  11. Pedro, If you create a new "State" instead of "Property" in the ModelEntity, it works as you wish, BUT only if you create a model inside the same component.spfx, not if you load the object to another file. At first I thought it was restriction for student version, but it does the same for Team license. See attached file. Please, someone from Simio could explain why this happens? Eduardo
  12. Pedro. I´m not sure if I understood your question, but take a look at the attached model. How far is that from what you need? Eduardo.

    Delete unused symbols

    In the "Navigation" (right side) select the project (default MySimioProject). In the "Views" (left side) select Symbols. Right click on the symbols and delete.

    Material Handling Challenges

    [quote="jdoran"] - Vehicles are not assigned to one circuit exclusively. They are used as required where ever they are required. - Some vehicles are more like trains/tractors, in that they have accessories that can be added or removed. [/quote] On factory floor the handling of pallets is usually done by trolleys, and the available trolleys can be in any place far or close to the driver and the pallet, not addressed to one only area or driver. I miss the vehicle having a driver (a worker). This driver could be one accessory to be added or removed. My current task is to find the best number of trolleys and drivers in a factory floor. There are workarounds to implement this, but nothing as clear as a driver to a vehicle. Eduardo.
  15. I started thinking more about this subject in the WSC in Berlin. Before it I was just jumping in the model and now getting some difficulties (think I´m the only one that can go deep on my models). I found with one colleague the technique IDEF-SIM http://www.informs-sim.org/wsc11papers/138.pdf, which I intend to apply to my models. Agree that Simio could facilitate model conceptualization.
