Start Simulation with initial stock in server

Recommended Posts

Dear Simio Users



I'm modelling a system with 1 source, 1 waiting list, 6 servers and 1 sink.

But at the beginning only 3 of the 6 servers are available. As soon as these 3 servers run out of capacity, the remaining 3 servers should "open". 


  • Is there a simple solution to start my simulation with an initial stock in the 3 servers and on the waiting list (which is modeled as a storage)? Since the entities have several state variables, I should also be able to define them at the beginning...
  • Or does it make more sense to solve this problem with a process and how would you go about doing that?


Thank you very much for your support!

You can set the capacity at the first 3 servers. Use referenced properties. You can use a fourth referenced property to tally the capacity of servers 1,2,3, together.

Then restrict other server from working by telling it 'If capacity at servers 1,2,3 > 0' then remain closed

Open the server with 'if capacity at servers 1,2,3 = 0' then activate

Set a timer event to check every minute, assign it to the open or restrict process.
