  1. Hi, I'm having trouble with unit conversion when doing state assignments at a source. There are two different cases where this problem appears in the model: Subtracting TimeNow minus a Date Time state variable (ModelEntity.stWaitingListEntryDate) Although the specified unit for this property is 'Days', the assigned value is in hours and the unit is also 'Hours'. If I manually convert it by dividing by 24, the assigned value is in days, but the displayed unit is still ‘Hours’. Unit conversion issue when assigning a new value to a state variable from a data table Although the PatientsData.MaxWaitingTime is a real property with default unit ‘Days’, the assigned value to the state variable is converted to ‘Hours’. As in the first case, if I manually convert it by dividing by 24, the assigned value is in days, but the displayed unit is still ‘Hours’. In the attached model (time_units_conversion.spfx) you will find a simple example where you can see this in more detail. Any suggestions to solve this issue will be highly appreciated. Thank you and best regards, Nicolina
  2. Hi, I'm working on an airport simulation, this is my first simulation, i have a transfer node that has one income link and two output links, so I would like to know if there is a way that depending on certain Entinty's boolean state variable, whe passing throught the tranfer node if the state is true set and specific outbound link and if it is false then set the outbound link rule by link weight.
  3. I would like to refer to the BicycleAssembly Simio Simbit as I'm using it as a reference to set up my own model. As I set the Initialization step of my model, I read the Orders table row by row, using a global variable called CurrentRowNumber. However, when an order entity is created, I would like to keep track of the row in the Orders table that entity is created from with a model-entity level state variable. However, I'm not sure how to do. I cannot just assign the value of this ModelEntity.State = GlobalCurrentRowNumber as the GlobalCurrentRowNumber continuously changes as the simulation runs. May I have some suggestion as to how to do so? Thank you
