In the Results -> Pivot Grid under Server you will see several Throughput Categories that each have NumberEntered and NumberExited.

Sure.


Finding the data you want in the pivot chart (see red circle) is one good way of figuring out what function value you want to use. For many functions, the Object Name, Data Source, and Data Item in the pivot table define the expression to use in Simio.

In this case it would be: Server1.Processing.NumberEntered.


Of course you could also just use the expression builder and read the help on each pull-down item until you find what you are looking for.

HI every one. i´m trying to do a reset of the value that displayed in the "statuslabel" that i have assigned to a Source. This label have the expression: "OutputBuffer.NumberExited". So, when i start my simulatión I did diferent amounts of through the time. For this reason i´m searching how can i see dinamically the quantity of entites they have exited of the source in diferent intervals of times. as an example, my first interval of arrivals it´s between 00:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m., for this a section of time i wanted see the results in a display facility or in a report of total amount of entities arrival in this interval. And, in the next interval horary the next total amount and so on

you should use a timer element (it can be triggered once every two hours or any other time interval you determined) or an add-on process (wherever it is appropriate) which triggers a process (create a new process) which includes some assignments. You should assign StaCurrentValue (current value of the statistic you collect) to a new state variable let it call StaPeriodicValue (the state variable that is shown in status label)-->in an assign step StaPeriodicValue=StaCurrentValue...
