SIMUL8 Tip – Group Objects to Retrieve Average Number in System

This week, we’re going to take a look at a quick tip in order to view work item amounts in a group of simulation objects. This might come in handy if we are expecting https://blog.simul8.com/best-prices-on-generic-levitra/ our system to contain a certain amount of work items at any time, or if we want to see what sort of averages our system can handle without causing any issues.

Let’s take the example simulation below:

2405FT_1

First, we will need to group all of our objects. To do this, drag a selection accross all Activities and Queues, and then right-click and select “Create Group”.

2405FT_2

Now that all of these objects are in a group (which by default will be called Group 1), we can view the group’s results by navigating to the Data and Rules tab and cialis uy online selecting Groups.

2405FT_4

Here we can see that we can add properties to the group, which will apply for all objects contained in it. In this case, we want to be able to note the average number purchase daily cialis of work items that pass through the whole group; if we select the Results button, we will be able to find this average, which we can then compare in various scenarios.

Grouping simulation objects can be a very simple and effective way to gain additional information from your simulation!
