Entity has to go to his destination node, but with a stopover at a specific node


Recommended Posts

Dear all,

I would like to know how to model the following problem:


At creation, each entity gets a destination node. But 5 % of the entities have to make a stop-over at a certain node called "security check". After going through "security Check" the entity has to go to the destination he gained at creation.


How to model such a "stop-over"?


Thanks!

From the Source creation point, you could have two paths - the first path connects to a TransferNode, where the second path connects to a 'StopOver' Server, for example. The Selection Weight property for the path to the StopOver server would be 0.05 (5% of entity flow), whereas the Selection Weight property for the path to the TransferNode would be 0.95 (95% of entity flow). From the StopOver server, you could connect a path to that same TransferNode. From the TransferNode, set the Destination Type to 'Specific' and the Node Name to the destination node state of the entity.

What i did for now is the following:


At creation the destination node is given to the entity, which is the "end destination".

After creation, is decided (5% chance) if the entity has to go to the server. If true, the destination node of the entity is then set to the server.


So after the entity went through the server, the destination node of the entity has to be set back to the "end destination", which was given at the beginning.


The problem here is; the entities are still on a vehicle. So Simio gives an error when it tries to adjust the destination node.


So the next question is;

How to change the destination of entities when they are travelling on a vehicle?
