Visual Logic - BreakDown

Stops a simulation working for Duration time units. If Duration = 0 then the simulation object will not automatically restart.


  • Simulation Object - Conveyor, Activity or Start Point
  • Duration - Time object is to be broken down for


Use with Start Points to stop arrivals.

IMPORTANT: Simul8's own breakdown facility must be enabled for an Activity before you can use this breakdown call for the Activity. Enable this by creating any breakdown (with a repair time of zero if you do not really want any automatic breakdowns).

If you call breakdown while the Activity is already broken down then that breakdown will be canceled and the new one substituted.


You can find an example on the use of the “Breakdown” command here: Breakdown.s8
