Description
The time that the simulation will end. See also “Simulation timing” on page 88 for continuous models and “Moving items through the simulation” on page 304 for discrete event and discrete rate models.
The current time at the start of the simulation. By default this is set to 0, since that is the most common starting point. Set it to a different value if the model uses the time value for some calculations. See also “Simulation timing” on page 88 for continuous models and “Moving items through the simulation” on page 304 for discrete event and discrete rate models.
The number of consecutive times to run this simulation. In the status bar, discussed on page 602, the numbering of simulation runs starts at 0.
Time unit for the entire model. Local time units can be defined within the dialogs of blocks that contain time parameters. See “Time units” on
page 604.
Allows you to specify calendar-based timing if Use Calendar dates is selected. See “Calendar dates” on page 606.
Only available if Use Calendar dates is not selected. Used by ExtendSim to automatically convert local time units to the global time unit. See “Time unit conversions (non-Calendar dates)” on page 607.
