Process Instance Arrival Rates

Arrival rates for process instances specify how many process instances of the corresponding process definition will be created in a specific interval.

Specifying Arrival Rate Distributions

Arrival rate distributions for process instances can be specified by three different curves in the properties page Simulation > Arrival Distribution in the property dialog for process definitions:

Long-term arrival rate, calendar-based arrival distribution and daily distribution are multiplied to obtain the resulting arrival rate, whereby the calendar-based values and daily distribution are relative values. The daily distribution is always adjusted to an integral value of 100%.

For details on the modification of the arrival rate curves see Working With Curves.
