ExtendSim includes a Templates* library of hierarchical blocks demonstrating how to model common tasks. Use these model segments as little nudges to get you started. Modify them to fit your specific needs for a great time saver on your next modeling project!
|Queue - Dump Contents
Items are dumped from the Queue at even intervals. In this example, a message is sent from the Pulse to the Gate every 60 minutes. The Gate opens and sends all of the items from the Queue to the Exit.
|Queue - Random Order
Randomly sorting a Queue can be useful. An easy way to do this is to assign each item a random priority and then use the "Priority" sorting rule for the Queue.
|Queue - Random Renege
Items renege from the Queue after a random amount of time. When an item arrives to the Queue, it gets a random value from the Random Number block. If the item waits too long, it will renege and go to the Exit block.
