Create parts when set to time or date

Hi I have a model where I need to generate parts from source when model time is 3600seconds or time 1:00:00. I don't want to use arrival schedule. How can I do it. In source I have used arrival sequence where 5 parts there.

Hi @mary

You can achieve this by using "date time source" or "Schedule source" in Process flow.

If you don't want to use an arrival schedule (why?) then you can just create the events in a process flow - see attached.

Hi @mary

You can also achieve this using "schedule source" and "date time source".

Please refer to the model attached below.
