Input Variable Type
Static first run init – a static variable that gets initialized to its starting X X value only at the beginning of the first run. Specify starting value in
the Variable Value column.
Static mult run init– a static variable that gets initialized to its starting X X value at the beginning of each run. Specify starting value in the Vari-
able Value column.
Static open model init – a static variable that gets initialized to its X starting value when the model is opened. Specify starting value in the Variable Value column.
Next calc event time –Used to get this block's next event time. (Only X enabled if the “Use ‘calc event time’ output variable” option is cho-
sen.)
Attribute – the value of the attribute named in Variable Name
Item quantity – the item’s quantity value
Item priority – the item’s priority value
Item index – the item’s index value from the Executive’s item array 3D object ID – the index of the item’s 3D object

For the Variable Name column, use the default names, assign names that have more relevance to the model, or select a name from a popup, depending on the type of variable selected. The type of input variable selected also determines the options for the Variable Value field: enter a value directly, select the value from a database location, and so forth.
☞ The notation PRI (Parent Record Index) is used in blocks that interface with the ExtendSim database. It describes the type of value that is being read or written when dealing with a Child field.
☞ The Queue Equation, Query Equation, and Query Equation(I) blocks have additional specific input variable types. See “Sorting items using the Queue Equation block” on page 145 or “Query Equation and Query Equation(I) blocks” on page 775.
