maximum warm up period?

Is there some maximum to the warm up period? 

I want to do experiments with the experiment manager, each observations of 30 days. I determined that the warm up period must be 16 days. But when I do this (in both the experiment manager and the event controller) the simulation time stops at 16 days. And hence also no statistics are collected. But when I set it to 8 days, it works fine, it goes till 30 days as needed. Is there some maximum or is there just something wrong in our model or something

What settings did you implement in the EventController?

I changed End to 30:00:00:00 end startStat to 16:00:00:00 

That's it

It is difficult to tell why it stops at another point than you intend it to.

 

By the way, the End attribute does not represent the run length itself. End = startStat + Run length

so If I want to run the model for 30 days (to collect statistics), with a warm up period of 16 days, I should set end to 46 days? 

Don't know why it stops either. We have 4 sub models, and in 1 it works with 16 days. In one it does not work with any warm up, and in 2 it only works if we enter 8 days as warm up period....

Can you post the model?

Wow, that looks a bit complicated for its purpose!

 

All your machines seem to fail without an end when the statistics are reset. At that point there are no further evenst to process and the model stops.

What do you mean by seem to fail without an end? And how can I check that?

 

I don't quite know what is wrong now, and how to solve it

Ok, it is quite difficult to find out what you have been doing.

 

But it looks like you ask for a service "nothing" which cannot be delivered. Because there is no worker with this capability, nor a workplace that allows for this service.

 

I suspect you are over-specifying things. If the supported services table of a workplace is empty, it accepts any service for the associated station.
