How to fix down state to operator in break time

Hello. I have a time table to stop the operators of my model in the break time. By default, the state of them should be changed, because the down and resume functions seem to be well configured.

When I see an operator stopped in the simulation (whith the red square in the base, the state fixed in them is the state they had previously, for example "busy").

I don´t know If I am doing it correctly.


Thanks a lot in advance.

I will try to explain better my problem with some pictures.

The problem is that the state don´t change in that time. They are in the down time, but the state does not change.

I have for this example a calendar with a down time in 0. And the state of them are busy. The problem is the same in all stops operators have along the simulation.

You can set the state that your operator is in when they are in down time.

If a 0 is where the STATE_DOWN is then the object will stay in the sate it was before the time table stopped the object.

Please, post your model if you would like more help.

I don´t know why, but I miss that It is possible to change the state directly in the calendar table. The first period input the time to state 3 (first screenshot I posted before).

Sorry for the inconveniences and thanks for the help.

Hello @Oscar N,

Check out page 91 of the Dr. Allen Greenwood’s FlexSim Primer. It goes over how to create down time or breaks with time tables. If you still have questions after this please post your model.

Hello @Oscar N,

By default, when you use Time Table operator's state will change to "schedule down".

If you see the state using a dashboard, you can not see it because this state is Excluded by default (you can change this in dashboard properties).


I hope I have been helpful.
