Change processing time based on label

I would like to have each of my created flowitems immediately be assigned a "order size" label that determines how large the order is, and then be able to alter the processing time based on the item type and order size, is this possible to accomplish?

Yes, this is possible. If you are simulating process time with a processor, you can access the item (and its labels) that has arrived in the Process Time field:

itembasedprocesstime.fsm

@jordan.johnson one more quick question regarding this! Can I make the order size follow a statistical distribution and still use this method?

Thanks!

Yes. Just pick the distribution you want. While the distribution you want is probably not the normal distribution, here is an example:

normal(item.OrderSize * 10, item.OrderSize * 0.2, getstream(current))
