Video and Webinar Series

Model a Discrete Event System

Get started with SimEvents®, which provides a discrete-event simulation engine and component library for Simulink®. The video series explains key discrete-event simulation concepts, and it demonstrates how to implement them in SimEvents using an example model of a restaurant.

Overview Represent a discrete event system in SimEvents .

Entities Create entities to build a simple restaurant model with SimEvents .

Queues and Servers Introduce queues and servers to model a restaurant with SimEvents .

Assigning Attributes Create attributes for the entities with SimEvents .

Using Attributes Assign block parameters using entity attributes with SimEvents .

Attribute Function Block Access and modify entity attributes through MATLAB with SimEvents .

Timeouts Introduce timing information for entities with SimEvents .

Resources Define, acquire, and release resources in SimEvents .
