Error description

  • Configuration:
    ------------
    Environment = Microsoft Windows (R)
    Tool = IBM Rational System Architect (R)
    Version = 11.4.2.1 (build 90)
    
    Description:
    -----------
    When there is a mistake in the value of a distribution parameter
    for example having Triangle(3 4, 8) instead of Triangle(3, 4, 8)
    the simulator validate phase does not error however when the
    simulator is run it results in many model build errors. The
    exact cause is ambiguous. For example here the cause was the
    missing comma in a distribution parameter.  The cause can also
    be using unexpected characters or symbols.  Instead, either the
    validation phase should catch this or for System Architect to
    not allow incorrect values to be entered into the parameters.
    
    Workaround
    -----------
    Examine all the values entered for the simulation and ensure
    they have not been entered incorrectly, correct as required,
    then rerun the simulation.

    The simulation distribution properties are read/write
    allowing invalid values to be entered.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The simulation distribution properties are now read only.
    They must be set using the wizard.
