statistical distribution operator
Hello everybody,
I have the following question: an operator has a simple task, that is bringing a box from one queue to another, he has a path using networknodes. The distance between the queues is 200 meter, and he walks at 9 m/s. So when i open the networknode parameters, i can input the speed limit & virtual distance. but is there any way I can put for example a statistical distribution in one of these parameters, for example when the operator has to wait for something on the road, or he has to slow down for something. So my question is, how can you make your path or operator nondeterministic? thanks in advance!

One way is to change the speed of the operator at certain times, like in the load/unload trigger.

Another way could be to use the Triggers on the NetworkNodes (OnArrival, OnContinue) and change the speed of the taskexecuter.

I tried this but I still don't see how I have to do this.
I added a little test model here, is it possible for someone to show me what code to implement where? The speed of the operator must be 6 minimal and 10 max. thank you very much in advance!

If you want to change the max speed of the operator as suggested, you just add this line on the on load /unload triggers in the operators properties:
setvarnum(current,"maxspeed",uniform(6,10)); if you want to change the speed of the operator at the nodes, add this line at the on arrival trigger at each node: setvarnum(traveler,"maxspeed",uniform(6,10)); hope this helps... regards Pablo Concha E.
