Set Distribution Parameters

Definition

Sets/changes a distribution you have defined.

Parameters

  • Distribution Name - Name of the distribution (you have created) that is to be changed and the name must be in quotation marks.
  • Distribution Type - The type of SIMUL8 distribution to be used.
  • Parameter 1 - The value of the first parameter for the chosen distribution type.
  • Parameter 2 - The value of the second parameter for the chosen distribution type (if there is not one, insert 0).
  • Parameter 3 - The value of the third parameter for the chosen distribution type (if there is not one, insert 0).
  • Parameter 4 - The value of the fourth parameter for the chosen distribution type (if there is not one, insert 0).

Comments

The sequence of the parameters for each distribution type in this command is always the same as the sequence in the interactive dialogs that set parameters of distributions. e.g. for a “Normal” distribution, Parameter 1 is the “Average” and Parameter 2 is the “Std Dev”.

Annotated Example

In the below example, a Named Distribution has been created and called “dummy”. It has been set to Normal Distribution with an Average of 30 and Standard Deviation of 4. As there is not a 3rd or 4th Parameter, they can both be set to 0.
