3 The Basic Process

3 The Basic Process Panel This chapter describes the flowchart and data modules that you’ll use to model your process. Additionally, this chapter includes example uses of each module. The Basic Process panel is accessible to all licensed editions of Arena. Flowchart modules Flowchart modules are the set of objects that are placed in the model window to describe the simulation process. Create module Number of entities created DESCRIPTION This module is intended as the starting point for entities in a simulation model. Entities are created using a schedule or based on a time between arrivals. Entities then leave the module to begin processing through the system. The entity type is specified in this module. TYPICAL USES • The start of a part’s production in a manufacturing line • A document’s arrival (for example, order, check, application) into a business process • A customer’s arrival at a service process (for example, retail store, restaurant, information desk) PROMPTS Prompt Name Entity Type Type Description Unique module identifier displayed on the module shape. Name of the entity type to be generated. Type of arrival stream to be generated. Types include Random (uses an exponential distribution, user specifies mean), Schedule (uses an exponential distribution, mean determined from the specified Schedule module), Constant (user specifies constant value; for example, 100), or Expression (drop-down list of various distributions). 31

GETTING STARTED WITH ARENA Prompt Value Schedule Name Expression Units Entities per Arrival Max Arrivals First Creation Description Determines the mean of the exponential distribution (if Random is used) or the constant value (if Constant is used) for the time between arrivals. Applies only when Type is Random or Constant. Identifies the name of the schedule to be used. The schedule defines the arrival pattern for entities arriving to the system. Applies only when Type is Schedule. Any distribution or value specifying the time between arrivals. Applies only when Type is Expression. Time units used for interarrival and first creation times. Does not apply when Type is Schedule. Number of entities that will enter the system at a given time with each arrival. Maximum number of entities that this module will generate. When this value is reached, the creation of new entities by this module ceases. Starting time for the first entity to arrive into the system. Does not apply when Type is Schedule. Dispose module DESCRIPTION This module is intended as the ending point for entities in a simulation model. Entity statistics may be recorded before the entity is disposed of. Number of entities that have been disposed TYPICAL USES • Parts leaving the modeled facility • The termination of a business process • Customers departing from the store 32
