Generate and Destroy Entities and Messages
Discrete-event simulations typically involve discrete items of interest, called entities in SimEvents® software. You determine what an entity signifies, based on what you are modeling. Generate entities, and inspect their structures. Use Entity Generator block to specify custom entity intergeneration times. Use Entity Terminator block to terminate entities. For more information, see Entities in a SimEvents Model.

Inspect entity structures using these methods.
Specify intergeneration times for entities using MATLAB® code.
This example shows a queuing system in which feedback influences the arrival rate.
Create copies of entities.
Generate multiple entities at time zero using MATLAB code.
Measure point-to-point delays using timers.
Use events to determine when to generate an entity.
