Activity Sets

Overview and Key Concepts

Activity sets are a set of preconfigured activities bundled in a container that together model a basic people module task. The set contains all the activities necessary to perform a basic task; however, the set is intended to be a starting point for modeling the specific task in your model. You are encouraged to add, remove, and rearrange activities to better suit the task your model is simulating.

Walk then Process

This activity set models a person acquiring a location, traveling to it, spending some time there, and then releasing the location. This could represent, for example, someone signing in at a kiosk when entering a facility.

Wait in Line then Process

This activity set models a person waiting their turn in line and then acquiring a location and staff, traveling to the location, spending some time there, and then releasing the staff and location. This could represent, for example, someone waiting in line at a registration desk and then registering.

Escort then Process

This activity set models a person acquiring a location and staff, being escorted to the location by the staff, spending some time there, and then releasing the staff and location. This could represent, for example, someone being called back by a nurse to check vitals.

Transport then Process

This activity set models a person acquiring a location, transport, and staff, being transported on the transport to the location by the staff, spending some time there, and then releasing the staff, transport, and location. This could represent, for example, someone being placed on a gurney and taken back to a room in the Emergency Department.

Move Equipment then Process

This activity set models a person acquiring an equipment and staff, the staff bringing the equipment to the person's current location and spending some time there, and then releasing the staff and equipment. This could represent, for example, someone being visited by a nurse to perform an EKG test.

Walk or Wait Area

This activity set models a person acquiring a location and staff, traveling to the location, spending some time there, and then releasing the staff and location. However, if either the location or staff is not immediately available they will wait in a waiting room until both are acquired. This could represent, for example, someone waiting at the DMV until their number is called.

Escort or Wait Area

This activity set works just like the Walk or Wait Area set detailed above except that the person will be escorted by the staff to the location instead of walking there alone.

Process with Staff

This activity set models a person acquiring a staff and then having the staff walk to a location and spend some time there before releasing the staff. This could represent, for example, a doctor coming to the patient's exam room or a nurse going into the other room to complete some charting.

Two Staff Meet

This activity set models a person acquiring two different staff and then having them meet and spend some time together there before releasing the staff. This could represent, for example, a doctor and nurse meeting in an office to discuss a patient's condition.

Escort to Exit

This activity set models a person acquiring a staff to escort them to the exit and then releasing the staff before exiting the model.
