  1. can't open your models. SInce i'm using commercial version/enterprise version... It says commercial version can't open academic/personal version model...
  2. I can not upload the file. Try this link: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1D548lj3OsccGzFRn77m7J_UZ9dueG_TE
  3. Hi All This has probably never really come up for most of you, but is there a way of using a button to open an external file (like a PDF)? I just want the system to open a reference document from within a simulation. It's ok (actually preferable) for the file to open outside Simio; it just makes for a good contact to relevant supporting information. Thanks
  4. We will have 1 or more openings for an Industrial/Systems Engineering intern with our office at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, MD. We are seeking a 3rd or 4th year undergrad industrial/systems engineering student with some experience with Simio and computer simulation concepts that you would have opportunity to apply in a federal government setting. Some background on what our office does at NIH: https://www.ors.od.nih.gov/OD/OQM/Pages/index.aspx The announcements will open on Monday, February, 4th and close on February 8th or when the applicant cut-off is
  5. Hello, I am modeling a store with a few workers and 3 cash desk. Two of them are always open. If the Queue in front of the two cash desk gets to long a 3rd worker is opening the 3rd cash desk. The Problem is: I dont know how to tell the Entities to only chose the 3rd cash desk if it is in use/open. Thanks in advance
  6. I cannot open this because I have a commercial edition. Is there a way to open it in a commercial edition?
  7. Cant open your model... use a monitor element and set the condition to i.e. 75% of processing time...catch the process and seize the required resources with a move the objects...be sure to reserve the resources (block) upon arrival.... You will need to take your resources assignments out of the task sequences as currently defined. I am online today if you want me to have a look.
  8. Hello! Probably it's a easy problem to solve, but I'm struggling with it! I'm going to describe my little system (please see the attached image): At lunch time (12h PM), the students enter the restaurant through the ticket gate (1) and chose the self-service food buffet (servers A, B or C) with the lowest queue. My question is: when it is 1h PM the "C" buffet closes, for this action I've put on the first "C" server a "Work Period Exception" that makes the server to have a new capacity = 0, but its queue (with more than 30 people) continues on "C" inputbuffer, thus I would li
  9. Hi Mark, I was able to get the jibcrane example to work within a small example. I simply specified the network of the hook/ grabber. Directly open the attached file and select the SmallExample object in the project window then run. Thanks for the share. JibCraneLibraryB.spfx
  10. Hello Simio team. My group and I are currently working on solutions reguarding queue related issues. We are working on a case where we can implement a loop system similar to the Sim Bit called "Add and remove server capacity", altough we would like relate the opening and closing of capacity based on the maximum queue time (5 minutes = Open another server) and (3 minutes = Closer a server) in the TransferRode instead of the numbers entities in the TransferNodes. We have tried to follow the pdf step by step in the Sim Bit, but we have not been able to get it to work. I hope yo
  11. Thank you Gocken for your solution. Although it almost looks like what we're trying to achieve, the starting point of the 90 minute simulation is two servers (counters) open and when the average queue exceeds 5 minutes another one is opened and once the average queue gets below 2 minutes one of them will close, so a minimum capacity of 2 servers.
  12. This is something I have heard others talk about, but never actually got working for myself. Is it possible to reference a file with a dynamic name? I want to write out to a csv file during simulation runs, but the write originates from a submodel. This means that it is called multiple times, meaning that only one of my sub models actually gets to write. What is the easiest way to over come this? And yes, the write must originate from the sub-model.
  13. Hello all. I'm stuck on a project I'm working on. I'm trying to simulate a supermarket, where the cashiers open new check-outs when necessary (2 are always open and when there are 5 or more in queue they open another). To simulate this I've using 4 servers, with paths leading from the source to the first two nodes, setting up a balking system and then pathing from the first two servers the third server, and then the same for the fourth server, but the supermarket also closes the check-outs when there aren't enough customers to need it and I've been unable to figure out a way to do this. T
  14. We have a SimBit named 'AddAndRemoveServerCapacity' that includes 6 servers and decision logic to turn on/off the server capacity based on the number of entities in the various lines for the 'open' servers. Monitor Elements within the Definitions window are used to evaluate the lines and a common process is used to turn on capacity. Also, for updating the processing time based on the number of workers, see this user forum link for more information - http://www.simio.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2196&p=7147&hilit=change+processing+time+based+on+workers#p7147.
  15. can not open your model due to edition conflict! Still you should add a "batchsizecolumn" (can be an iteger type) to your table and define a state variable for modelentity object named batchsize. After you create your modelentities you should assign "modelentity.batchsize == table1.batchsizecolumn". Then use modelentity.batchsize as the batsize propery of combiber...
  16. Hi Simio I am struggling to apply costs to aspects of the flow library. How do you associate a cost to a regulator being open? And how do you associate a cost to a model entity per unit of volume? For example, the cost of a fluid per litre of fluid. Thank you
  17. see attached files. place both of them on desktop and open run simio file. It does not work properly because path 3's none of the add-on processes work (i.e., I set process 2 for 4 add-ons of Path 3 but it does not write to excel. In order to make it work properly I defined an add-on process to first test's output note (set process 2 for exited add-on of first test) and it works. This should be a bug and must be fixed. Pls report this to support team. 1.xlsx ExcelWriteTest.spfx
  18. Hello, I have a process Vehicle1_EnteredNode that moves a vehicle and seizes the two workers needed to operate. The two workers work from 8 to 12 and 13 to 17. When they are off the schedule, process AAInterruptCarMove is used to interrupt and release correctly the server and the vehicle. To make the Interrupt process, I’ve checked simbit VehicleStopsWhenServerOffshift. Then, I’ve used process AAInterruptGrutierEtAccrocheur to interrupt and release the two workers. The problem is, the two workers don’t get released. Instead, they go offshiftBusy which I don’t want because while OffshiftBus
  19. Thank you for your reply! But the file does not open. Here is the message displayed. Can you resend it please ? Thank you, Flora
  20. Modeling multiple cranes on a common (shared) runway is hard to do well. Still harder when you take into account acceleration, crane blocking, and good 3D animation. If you have encountered this problem, here is a solution. For standard bridge crane movement, we recommend the simpler Crane object in the Extras library. But if you need the underhung cranes with cabs moving between bays, read on... The Simio Crane Library is a collection of objects designed for modeling multiple cranes operating simultaneously in a bay. The library is provided as an example of complex material handling
  21. Hi, I am busy modeling a meat and fish shop and would like to ask for some help with the worker scheduling. I need to figure out the optimal number of workers that need to be assigned between the MeatandFishCounter and DeliCounter in 30 minute intervals (workers can only be added or removed in 30 minute intervals) so that the entities entering the LunchtimeCustomerOnly sink are in the store for a maximum of 3 minutes, the entities entering the NormalCustomerOnly sink are in the store for a maximum of 5 minutes and the entities entering the NormalCustomerBoth sink are in the store f
  22. Hello. I am trying to model the brewing process of a local brewery. They have 8 different types of beer, 6-30 barrel fermentation tanks and 4-15 barrel fermentation tanks. Each "job" is 15 barrels, therefore if two "jobs" are the same type of beer, they may brew together in a 30 barrel tank. 15 barrel jobs can still brew in 30 barrel tanks, they just cant mix with an unlike entity. I am relatively to simio, so please if you can explain in simplified terms that would be good. I need to know how to make sure that only identical entities brew at the same time within a 30-barrel tank. If the

  24. Oh, great thanks Gocken, you are always here for help. Unfortunately, I cannot open your file for format compatibility. I am using the 8 simio academic edition. What is your edition ? If you can just tell me what went wrong please. Slts.
  25. First you have to define a cost center for your model. Select definitions tab then elements and click cost center from the ribbon. Then Process 1 is defined to be triggered by all vehicles "entered node" add-on process. I assumed that all vehicles charged transportation cost if they are transporting entities. Otherwise, no cost is added to costcenter1 of model. For the the second topic you mentioned simply set "PathTravelingCost" property's default value to 1.82. This value will appear as default whenever you place a mypath object to the facility layout. This can save time and energy. Browse t
