Hi.
I have a process that works in each hour with a diferente statistical distribuition. The operation interval is 24h, so how can I use a rate table with diferent statistical distributions ?

you can not use different distributions by using rate tables. Rate table only allows to model nonhomogenous poission processes. You can model different rates within a time period (i.e., events per hour). I do not know what do you want but it seems you should define different functions to represent different type of distributions you want to use and then somehow you should trigger those functions at appropriate times.

You can use a regular table with 24 rows, one for each of your hourly distributions. Then you can reference each using something like Table1[Math.ceiling(Math.Remainder(Run.TimeNow, 24))].Distribution as a processing time. One thing to note is that Run.TimeNow returns the run time, not the clock time. So you may have to use some offset to line up your clock hour to the right table row.
