The Create module

The Create module is the starting point in a simulation model.

This module is referred to as the ‘birth’ node for temporary entities as it acts as the starting point in a simulation model.

Entities are created based on a time between arrivals. The entity type is specified in this module.

Typical uses include the start of a part’s production in a manufacturing line, a document’s arrival (eg order, check, application) into a business process, and a customer’s arrival at a service process (eg retail store, restaurant or information desk).
