Whether it’s parts entering a manufacturing line, people entering a coffee shop, patients arriving at a hospital or calls coming into a call center, for any process we might want to simulate we have to consider how to include our arrivals.

Arrivals are controlled by the Start Point building block. The Start Point is the place where work items enter your simulation. Here, we can decide how frequently work items enter, where these work items go and what their characteristics are.
