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.

The following is an overview of how each activity in the activity set functions:

Activity or Shared Asset Explanation
Location Represents a location object in the 3D model that the person will acquire and interact with in this activity set.
Acquire Location Tokens wait at this activity until a location can be acquired.
Walk The person walks to the acquired location.
Process The person delays an amount of time representing the time required to complete the current process.
Release Location The location acquired at the start of the activity set is released.

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.

The following is an overview of how each activity in the activity set functions:
