Entity generation in SimEvents
2 views (last 30 days)
I want to generate 5 entities at the start of simulation and then single entity with fixed interval (idea of having initial inventory and then production at continuous rate) . I know how to generate multiple entities at the start of simulation but don't know how to continue generation of single entity with regular interval in rest of simulation time. can anyone guide me please as I'm a learner of SimEvents.

A persistent variable persists its value between function calls. 'isempty(SEQ)' returns 1 if SEQ is an empty array and 0 otherwise.
persistent SEQ; % SEQ should retain its value between different calls to this method
persistent idx; % idx should retain its value between different calls to this method
if isempty(SEQ) % Check if SEQ is empty
SEQ = zeros(1, TotalNumberEntitiesToGenerate); % Initialize the value of SEQ
Hope that clarifies!
