Define a new generator of arrivals in a simulation environment.

add_generator(.env, name_prefix, trajectory, distribution, mon = 1,
  priority = 0, preemptible = priority, restart = FALSE)

Arguments

.env
the simulation environment.
name_prefix
the name prefix of the generated arrivals.
trajectory
the trajectory that the generated arrivals will follow (see trajectory).
distribution
a function modelling the interarrival times (returning a negative value stops the generator).
mon
whether the simulator must monitor the generated arrivals or not (0 = no monitoring, 1 = simple arrival monitoring, 2 = level 1 + arrival attribute montoring)
priority
the priority of each arrival (a higher integer equals higher priority; defaults to the minimum priority, which is 0).
preemptible
if a seize occurs in a preemptive resource, this parameter establishes the minimum incoming priority that can preempt these arrivals (an arrival with a priority greater than preemptible gains the resource). In any case, preemptible must be equal or greater than priority, and thus only higher priority arrivals can trigger preemption.
restart
whether the activity must be restarted after being preempted.

Value

Returns the simulation environment.
