Trying to use a table to control Processing times of multiple Single Proc.
Current Method is below:
this is an example but I have more than three machines to control. What is the language to read down the table getting the machine name and tie from the Y dimension?

There are different ways to set up your model depending on the level of granularity you need, and how you want the input data to flow into the model. Below is a simplistic way that assumes the processing time a specific station is constant and independent of the MU that is being processed there.
The processing time formula is:
ProcessingTime["Time Minutes", @.Name]
Note that the table is indexed using the column name and row name, not the integer index. This enhances readability while (slightly) increasing model run time. It is preferable to use this approach as long as it isn't critical to optimize the model run time performance.
two things: the name of the station you should write into the row index (so you can use the names as keys for the row), in the SingleProc you need to set for the process time: formula (instead of constant)
The formula is: TableFile[1,?.name]
yes you can
you need to define several columns for the values of the distribution. Then you can use one of the z_... functions to set the value based on the values of the distribution in the formula
