Need help with SingleProc times

Creator

Hi, 

I am trying to simulate a process. In it I have 6 singleprocs. I would like to know if there was a way where i could regulate the time for each singleproc to be working. I put the total event time for 6 hours of simulation. But what I want to do is stop singleproc at 50minutes every hour and start singproc5 at 50minutes for just 10 minutes. And then back to the cycle. 

Would appreciate any kind of help.

Cheers

Hi Bipul,

you can stop a SingleProc by a pause.

Your problem fits very well on the object Trigger.

Please see the konfiguration of that object in the attached model for Plant Simulation 12.

I add an object TimeSequence for the purpose of validation.

Regards,

Peter

Hi Bipul,

 

please create a new Trigger. Deactivate the checkbox Repeat periodically. Set Active interval and Period length to 1:0:0.

On tab Values > Start Values set Default value to true. On Values > Contents insert two rows:

50:00 with false

1:00:00 with true

Run the simulation and check the result by using a TimeSequence.

Regards,

Peter
