Unformatted text preview: 1 Simulation Modeling and Analysis (ORIE 4580/5580/5581) Week 10: ProModel Basic Elements, Variables, Confdence Interval, and COMBINE Command (10/26/10 - 10/28/10) Announcement and Agenda 2 HW 6 is available on Blackboard and is due by 11am on 10/28 HW 7 will be available on 10/28, and will be due on 11/4 IMPORTANT: Read the 2 handouts posted on Blackboard Handout 1: Basic Elements of ProModel This handout will give step-by-step instructions for building a simulation model of single-server queue see Fle: SingleServerQueue.MOD Handout 2: Variables, ConFdence, Interval, and COMBINE Command Give step-by-step instructions for building a simple simulation model of a manufacturing plant see Fle: SimpleCasting.MOD ProModel User Guide is available under Course Documents You should start thinking about forming a project team Each team should have about 4 - 5 students Project will be available in mid-November Locations Icon Name Capacity Number of entities that can be stored or processed concurrently. Units Downtimes Statistics None, basic or time series (default). Rules Notes Similar to comments in programming. 3 Entities Icon Name Speed Speed traveled on a path network or in a queue. If the entity uses a resource to move, then the speed of the resource takes over. Statistics None, basic or time series (default), Notes Similar to comments in programming. 4 Processing Entity Entity for which process is defined. Can be ALL if all entities undergo the same processing at this location. Location Location where the process occurs. Operation Operation to be performed on this entity at this location. This is where the guts of the simulation occurs. Many different statements are possible. Routing What happens when the entity has completed the operation statements. 5 Routing Block Number Useful for conditional routings. If condition is satisfied, then go to location A, otherwise go to B. Output Name of entity that is sent out (default is original name). Destination Location entity is sent to. May be optionally followed by a comma and routing priority to describe the priority of the entities competing for the next location. Rule Move Logic Executed after entity claims the next location and before it enters next location. Can include statistics updating statements. Can include statements that grab resources. 6 Arrivals Arrivals that occur to a full location leave without entering. A warning message is generated upon simulation completion....
