Numbers bring rounded in custom code

When I use the following code below, I get errors when the "processingTime" label is a decimal.

When I run the model and look at the cycle time variable it seems to round up the decimal point. I don't understand why.

numtostring(num value)

is evaluated as

numtostring(num value, 0, 0)

So a floating value is converted to a string without a defined minimum length of characters and without any characters of a possible decimal part of the number. If you want to get a desired conversions you have to compute and convert the num value before you parse the num value into the command numtostring. Otherwise the command rounds the value as the Flexsim engine always rounds number values.

For me it works if I add the precision in the numtostring command.

string timeStr = numtostring(time,0,2);

but it seems that this is not the best way to set the processtime/ cycletime of the processor. In my example there is a gap between Setting the value and the cycletime the processor takes!

Maybe you should try to add this Code to the Processor, or set a Label and just reference this.
