Inspect entity structures using these methods.
Specify intergeneration times for entities using MATLAB® code.
Combine entities from different paths.
Create copies of entities.
Generate multiple entities at time zero using MATLAB code.
Measure point-to-point delays using timers.
Discrete-event simulations typically involve discrete items of interest. By definition, these items are called entities.
Specify entity types.
How entities fit into the modeling process.
See lists of blocks in the storage and nonstorage categories.
Use Simulink® Function blocks to exchange data.
Time-based signals and SimEvents signals have different characteristics.
The To Workspace block writes event-based signals to the MATLAB workspace when the simulation stops or pauses.
