3 • THE BASIC PROCESS

3 • THE BASIC PROCESS PANEL PROMPTS Prompt Name Type Capacity Schedule Name Schedule Rule Busy/Hour Idle/Hour Per Use StateSet Name Description The name of the resource whose characteristics are being defined. This name must be unique. Method for determining the capacity for a resource. Fixed Capacity will not change during the simulation run. Based on Schedule signifies that a Schedule module is used to specify the capacity and duration information for the resource. Number of resource units of a given name that are available to the system for processing. Applies only when Type is Fixed Capacity. Identifies the name of the schedule to be used by the resource. The schedule defines the capacity of a resource for a given period of time. Applies only when type is Schedule. Dictates when the actual capacity change is to occur when a decrease in capacity is required for a busy resource unit. Applies only when Type is Schedule. Cost per hour of a resource that is processing an entity. The resource becomes busy when it is originally allocated to an entity and becomes idle when it is released. During the time when it is busy, cost will accumulate based on the busy/hour cost. The busy cost per hour is automatically converted to the appropriate base time unit specified within the Replication Parameters page of the Run > Setup menu item. Cost per hour of a resource that is idle. The resource is idle while it is not processing an entity. During the time when it is idle, cost will accumulate based on the idle/hour cost. The idle cost per hour is automatically converted to the appropriate base time unit specified within the Replication Parameters page of the Run > Setup menu item. Cost of a resource on a usage basis, regardless of the time for which it is used. Each time the resource is allocated to an entity, it will incur a per-use cost. Name of states that the resource may be assigned during the simulation run. 47

GETTING STARTED WITH ARENA Prompt Initial State Failures Report Statistics Description Initial state of a resource. If specified, the name must be defined within the repeat group of state names. This field is shown only when a StateSet Name is defined. Lists all failures that will be associated with the resource. • Failure Name–Name of the failure associated with the resource. • Failure Rule–Behavior that should occur when a failure is to occur for a busy resource unit. Specifies whether or not statistics will be collected automatically and stored in the report database for this resource. Variable module DESCRIPTION This data module is used to define a variable’s dimension and values. You can reference variables in other modules (for example, the Decide module), reassign new values to variables with the Assign module, and use variables in any expression. You can use an external data file to specify variable values, and you can specify the variable’s initial values in the Variable module. If you use both methods, the values are read at different times, depending on the options you specify, including the File Read Time, the Clear Option, and the replication parameters you specify in the Run Setup dialog box. For more information, see the online Help. There are three methods for manually editing the Initial Values of a Variable module: • Using the standard spreadsheet interface. In the module spreadsheet, right-click on the Initial Values cell and select the Edit via spreadsheet menu item. The values for two-dimensional arrays should be entered one column at a time. Array elements not explicitly assigned are assumed to have the last entered value. • Using the module dialog box. In the module spreadsheet, right-click on any cell and select the Edit via dialog menu item. The values for two-dimensional arrays should be entered one column at a time. Array elements not explicitly assigned are assumed to have the last entered value. • Using the two-dimensional (2-D) spreadsheet interface. In the module spreadsheet, click on the Initial Values cell. 48
