Binomial Distribution

The Binomial distribution is a discrete distribution which provides the number of successes in a specified number of trials of experiments with binary outcomes (0 or 1).

The outcome 0 occurs with probability p and 1 with probability 1-p. Simul8 asks for the former and it can be used for instance to specify how many tests a work item has passed.

This information can be stored in a label which can then be used for Routing Out purposes, for example if the work items passing a certain number of tests go somewhere else than the others. Similarly, it can be used for the number of items in a batch, or the number of items demanded from inventory.
