In Simul8 you can name distributions that can be applied in many places in simulations. For example, if you have a simulation with 50 machines that work at the same given rate but you need to change this rate, you could create a distribution named ‘MACHDIST’, apply the distribution to all machines, and easily update the distribution’s parameters.
To create a Named Distribution, use the ‘New’ button in the Distribution panel from any dialogs that select distributions, or select Distributions from the Data & Rules tab and click New. Then select Named Distribution.
Named distributions can be manipulated from Visual Logic using the following commands:
