Models Illustrating the Use of Discrete Event Modeling Features and Capabilities

All the models assigned to the selected category are listed below.

You can filter the list by entering keywords or phrases into the search field:

  • Moving Discrete Items

    This simple model illustrates how to move discrete items from one state to another.

  • Delay Discrete Change with Vector Times

    Delay a discrete change with a vector of delay times using a Reservoir and Information Delay. The reason this is needed is because the Discrete Change Delay does not allow non-scalar delay definitions.

  • Trucking Shipments

    This example combines both continuous and discrete dynamics to model the transport of a material by truck to a dock where the material is loaded onto ships.

  • Managing a Bank Queue

    This is a simple discrete events model of the number of tellers and the size of a queue of customers at a bank.

  • Start and End Value Difference

    This model computes the difference between the initial value of a variable (at the beginning of a simulation) and the final value of the variable (at the end of the simulation).

  • Discrete Model for Manufacturing

    This model describes a manufacturing process with the following stages: (1) casting, (2) pre-finish, (3) ‘solution oven’ heat treatment, (4) ‘aging oven’ heat treatment and (5) a finishing process.

  • Simulating an ATM Queue using Resources

    This is a simulation for an ATM machine installed at an event location, where there are frequent customer visits

  • FDA Approval Process

    This model simulates the process of obtaining FDA approval for a new drug.

  • Acute Infection Model

    These two models (continuous and discrete) simulate the spread of an acute infection through a population

  • Population Growth Aging Chain

    Example model illustrating population dynamics modeling with Discrete Change elements and Integrator arrays

  • Aging Chain

    Simulate an aging chain using various methods to keep track of the age structure of a stock of material or items.

  • Probability of Buying a Bike

    Tutorial model that calculates the probability that Jason can buy a bike given his income and spending

  • Widget Processor Model

    In this simple model, widgets are processed at a warehouse for 30 days. The widgets arrive at a rate of about once every two hours. It takes a certain amount of time (1.8 hrs) to process each widget and ship it out, and only one widget can be processed at a time.

  • On - Off Reservoir Discharge

    This model demonstrates the use of a Status element to control discharges from a reservoir.

  • Number of Days Which Failure Occurs

    This model counts the number of days in which some failure occurs. A failure event is defined as a reservoir overflow occurrence for any duration within a single day.

  • Ships with Containers

    This model simulates ships entering the harbor where each ship carries a random number of containers.

  • Simulating Failure Risk of a Pump Station

    Use the Reliability Module of GoldSim to calculate the failure modes of various components of a pumping station and water delivery system.
