Converting between item and flow attributes
The Interchange block’s Flow Attributes tab provides a matrix for mapping between item and flow attribute names. The mapping table transfers the values of an item’s attributes to the spec- ified flow attributes and vice versa. The block’s dialog provides options for how the mapping should affect entering and departing items. For an example, see the Interchange block in the Yogurt Production With Flavors Plus model, located at Examples\Tutorials\Discrete Rate.
