Hi, it is my first day with Jaamsim and have run into a roadblock in terms of what I am looking to accomplish. In essence, I want an EntityGenerator to create the first entity at time 0 when the simulation is run. Subsequently, I want all further entities to be generated in relation to an event i.e. a specific EntitySink consuming an entity.

Hopefully my request is clear, all help and guidance appreciated.

Hi.
Please, try the attached example, based on EntitySignal to check the arrival of an entity at a certain point, then setting the state in the SignalThreshold and using it as an ImmediateThreshold to release Entities from the EntityGenerator (previously set with InterArrivalTime = 0 s).
There are surely other smarter ways to do the same, for example using Attributes and setting them with the Assign function, in a more nested and programmatic way.
I prefer the method attached because it is almost auto explicative in graphical form.

Regards,
Lorenzo

Many thanks for putting together the example Lorenzo, this is exactly what I needed and functions perfectly.

Regards
