The identification of cost is optional and has no effect on the behavior of the model.
Initial cost The initial value assigned as the cost of each newly created entity (negative 1,000,000 to 1,000,000). Once assigned, the entity cost may be increased automatically during the simulation based on waiting time, activity time, and resource usage. This cost is added to the pre-defined Cost attribute of the entity.
Waiting cost The cost that is added to the entity per hour of waiting time. Cost may range from negative 1,000,000 to 1,000,000. This cost is added to the pre-defined Cost attribute of the entity.
