File Information

NEW: Updated for R2015a.
NEW: Example demonstrating the Reorder Point method.

The library consists of a top-level SimEvents library called


eight sub-libraries:

  1. se4_batching.slx,
  2. se4_conveyor.slx,
  3. se4_math.slx,
  4. se4_utilities.slx,
  5. se4_DateTime.slx,
  6. se4_subsystem.slx
  7. se4_examples.slx,
  8. se4_test.slx,

five test bench models:

  1. test_accumulate.slx,
  2. test_batching.slx,
  3. test_conveyor.slx,
  4. test_DateTime_days.slx, and
  5. test_DateTime_minutes.slx.

and three example models:

  1. Goldratt_Dice.slx
  2. Job_Shop.slx
  3. Reorder_Point.slx

Nice work my friend! You might consider a version that releases the batch as individual entities instead of combined (or make it an option in the mask). You also could eliminate the need for the Time-Based Entity Generator upstream if you had a dialog option that specified the frequency of batching.

28 Dec 2010 1.1

Updated the description to include advantages and limitations. Also added Simulink to the list of required products.

03 Jun 2011 1.2

Added a new block to represent conveyor belts in the library. Added a new demo illustrating 'Little's Law'.

08 Jun 2011 1.3

Corrected typo in the description: revision date should be "2011" not "2010"

15 Jul 2011 1.4

Added three new blocks to the library: Accumulate, Disaccumlate, and Entity Subsystem. Updated files to R2011a. Fixed a few minor issues with the test bench models. Renamed the "LittlesLaw.mdl" simulation to "test_conveyor.mdl".

09 Aug 2011 1.5

Reorganized library into four sub-libraries. Added new blocks for 'zero-protected divide' and 'event-driven cumulative time average'

02 Jul 2012 1.6

Upgrading the libraries and test benches to R2011b.

16 May 2014 1.7

1. Updated to R2013b.
2. Updated to .slx file format.
3. Additional sub-library for date/time conversions.

03 Jun 2014 1.8

Correction: Updating requirements field to MATLAB 8.2 (R2013b)

31 Jul 2015 1.8.07

Updated for R2014a. Sub-library containing example models. Two example models:

12 Oct 2015 1.9

Updated for R2015a. Added a new example demonstrating the Reorder Point method.
