Time Dependent Distributions

In many situations the speed of a part of a system is related to the time of day. Time dependent distributions enable this to be simulated. Time dependent distributions are made up of a sequence of Named distributions. Create a named distribution for each different part of the day that can be identified as requiring a different underlying distribution.

In any of the random distribution panels in dialog boxes, click NEW and then TIME DEPENDENT DISTRIBUTION, and then NEXT».

Click ADD to select a named distribution and to set the time of day that it will start.
Click ADD again to add the next time slot in the day.

Click on a time slot and then click DETAIL to access information about the individual distribution directly, or click CHANGE to change the settings for that particular time slot (either its time or distribution).
