How to change the likelihood of a mulitprocessor doing each process

Hello all,

I need to change the chances that the processes occur on my multiprocessor. For example, I need process 1 "General Bag Scan" to occur about 80 percent of the time, while I need process 2 "Manual Bag Scan" to occur about 20% of the time. How can this be done? If there is a better setup for this please let me know. Thank you.

a multi processor is an object that does more processing steps on a single item. You can replace a multi processor by a chain of single processors. If you want to have two different categories of process time then you can say you evaluate a discete empirical distribution to choose which statistical distribution or static value must be returned in a time by case template.

A discrete empirical distribution is used to choose which statistical distribution is evaluated as a process time.

I would like to implement this. I see where you placed "values by case" in the process time field for the processor, and I see the empirical distributions scan type you created; however, I do not see how you input this information. Could you screen shot how you filled out the values by case field? I do not know how to view the current settings of the values by case field. Thank you for your help!
