Prompt: Arrival failures due to insufficient capacity

After the model has simulated the following prompt is displayed.

Simulation Complete, Do you want to see the results? (NOTE: There were entity arrival failures due to insufficient capacity)

Simulation Complete, Do you want to see the results? (NOTE: There were entity arrival failures due to insufficient capacity)

Reason:

Entity arrivals were scheduled to arrive. But because of limited capacity at the arrival location, they could not enter the model.

Solution:

Make sure you have a large enough capacity and/or input queue on the first activity following the arrival. Also make sure you haven’t assigned a shift to the activity that would cause the activity to be off shift when entities are scheduled to arrive.

Another way to avoid this message is to place a storage with sufficient capacity at the arrival location to act as a collection queue.

If you need further help, please contact support.
