Running only 1 MU through simulation?

Pioneer

Hi, my simulation is currently running only one MU through the simulation, and after one is done it stops and shows the statistics. I want to run the simulation for a longer period of time, but it will not run past one MU. Is there a setting I accidentally turned on or something that affects this? Thanks in advance.

While I have no idea what your simulation looks like, I assume that you have at least one Source instance in your model.

Could it be that in that source, on the attributes page, the amount is 1?

That would mean that the source creates a fixed amount of parts, namely 1.

The default setting in a newly created Source is "Interval adjustable" with an amount of -1 (meaning: infinitely many parts).

Hello,

 

you might have set the "time of creation" in the source to "Number Adjustable" and set one as parameter, could you check on that?

Kind regards,

Igor

It is on Interval Adjustable. There is more than one MU coming out of the source, but as soon as it goes into the Drain the simulation stops.

Could you upload the model that you are using? Or do you have any other methods implemented in your model?

Kind regards,

Igor

The issue in your model is that a station is blocking at subframe RobotC, this cuts the flow of MUs, there are hence no more events to be processed which causes your simulation to stop and print out the report. You can fix this by changing RobotC.setDestination( @.destination, true) to RobotC.setDestination( @.destination, false) in .Models.Frame.RobotC.MRobotC. After that you have another error coming up in subframe RobotH, here in the Methods Models.Frame.RobotC.FittingIn and Models.Frame.RobotC.MFittingOut the identifier "BufferProc2" does not exist, after changing it to "BufferingConvStandIn" the model works again. Attached is your model with all the fixes incorporated.

Kind regards,

Igor
