I'm using the info from this older thread to implement custom state profiles in my model (version 23.0).

I assume that "time" is the cumulative time spent in a given state that's automatically set and reset during the simulation run, but what does "active" refer to? The answer above says to leave it alone, but if this refers to the "Analysis" column of the state table (ex. blank/utilized/excluded), I definitely want to set this correctly so that I can perform the state analysis. Does anyone happen to know? Thanks!

I don't actually know what the "active" column is used for for sure. I believe it might just be used to show which states are actually used by the object.

I can however say that it does not influence the analysis in any way. Only the state table(s) control if the state is counted as "utilized" time or not.

This makes sense, because you could have two states chart that use different state tables. In one the setup time might count as utilized and not in the other. As such, this information can't be stored on the object itself, but must be independent from it.
