Resource Availabilities

Availabilities for resources (process participants or applications) specify how many resources are simultaneously available in a specific interval.

Specifying Availability Distributions

Availability distributions for resources can be specified by three different curves in the properties page Simulation > Availability in the property dialog for participants or applications:

Resource Availabilities

Long-term availability, calendar-based availability distribution and daily distribution are multiplied to obtain the resulting availability, 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 availability curves see Working With Curves.

Behaviour

You can also specify the efficiency rate in the properties page by selecting Simulation > Behaviour.
