Using Labels

Labels are a way to attach attributes to Work Items in your simulation.

For example you might attach a label “Illness” to Work Item type “Patients” and set this label to a code number as they enter your simulation of a hospital. Each code number would represent a type of illness and could be used to route the patients though the different Work Centers in the simulation.

Labels can contain either text or numbers.

Tell Work Centers or Work Entry Points to change the values of labels using the Actions button in a Work Center or Work Entry Point.

Labels can only be deleted if they are not in use by any Work Item or simulation object.

Access Labels from the Data and Rules tab.
