Move Object   

The Move Object activity moves an object or multiple objects to another place in a simulation model. When the object moves it will be instantaneous, meaning that it will instantly appear in its new location. It functions the same as calling the moveobject() command.

Max Content
Moving an object using this activity does not take into account Max Content on a task executer or fixed resource object. It will force the object(s) into the destination object regardless of that object's availability.


The Move Object activity only allows one connector out. See Adding and Connecting Activities for more information.


The following image shows properties for the Move Object activity:

Each of these properties will be explained in the following sections.

  • Name You can change the name of the activity using the Name box. See Name for more information about this property.

  • Statistics The Statistics button opens the activity's statistics window. See Statistics for more information about this property.
  • Object(s) Use the Object(s) box to specify the object you want to move. To move multiple objects at once, pass a treenodearray of object references into this property.
