Components With Labels & Distributions

Components that contain Labels and Distributions may be designed to keep these items “Private”, meaning that when the Component is introduced to a new simulation the Distribution is kept unique to the Component.

If a Private Distribution or Label is introduced to a simulation then SIMUL8 checks if the name is already used. If it already exists, perhaps because the Component has been used previously in this session, then the Distribution or Label is renamed.

To define a Distribution or Label as Private then place the suffix “Private_” before the name.

This means that a Label called “Label 1” when designated as Private should be called “Private_Label 1”. The first time the Component is used with in simulation “Private_Label 1” will be used, the second time the Component is used it will be named “Private_Label 2”.
