Hi, I am investigating the user behaviour in a building to quantify the usage intensity in real estate through simulation for university. Therefore i am modelling a whole building and i also need to model the elevator.
Therefore i am working with SimEvents. I already understood how to model it for an elevator that is used by one person, like described on the SimEvents website (
), but not for a various number of persons.
I tried to do it with the Batch creator or the Composite Creator. But therefore i would need a fixed number of persons who are going to the same floor, which is not the case.
I hope somebody can help me.
Thank you.

Auto Batch Creator enables you to 'Hide Commands' or 'Set Colors', providing you with multiple options to choose from.

The model described in the tutorial you mentioned exhibits only one person, but it can be used for any capacity of the elevator and any number of persons waiting.
