  • First create:
    • A Start Process, 'Start'
    • A Generic Process, 'Process'
    • An End Process, 'End'
  • Use the Interprocess Connection tool to connect:
    • 'Start' to 'Process' and to 'End'
  • Switch to the Flow Properties tab
    • Select Additional Properties Definition
      • Now change the Context Parameter to Object
      • Create three new parameters:
        • 'Obj_Property1' – Integer
        • 'Obj_Property2' – Integer
        • 'Obj_PartNumber' - String
  • Select 'Start'
    • So into Define Object Creation Rules
      • Switch to the Work Order tab
        • Create two Object Types
          • Both Default Object
          • Set Min/Max for both to 1/1
          • For the top line set Obj_Property1 to '1' and Obj_Property2 to '2' and Obj_PartNumber to 'Test1'
          • For the second line set Obj_Property1 to '3' and Obj_Property2 to '3' and Obj_PartNumber to 'Test2'
      • Switch back to the Object Selection tab

        • Property1 - Obj_Property1 - Integer
        • Property2 - Obj_Property2 - Integer
  • On the Simulation tab select Start, pause the model after the objects are created and hover the mouse cursor over each object to view the Object Parameters of each.
