Some label names have a special meaning to SIMUL8. They are automatically set as Work Item types when the label is created unless there is any doubt as to what Work Item type it is intended for. You should not use these names other than in the context for what they were intended. You will be asked to confirm that you want to use them for this purpose should you create a new label with any of these names.
The QUANTITY label determines the size of batches (one batch = one Work Item) at High Volume Activities.
The DUE label contains the remaining work time for an interrupted Work Item.
The PRIORITY label determines some aspects of priority.
The WORK TYPE label allows tells SIMUL8 there are different kinds of work types in your simulation. For example patients types or product types. This is used in reports for categorization for example cost by work type.
These label values are only available from EXCEL / VB code:
ID NUMBER is a unique code number identifying the individual Work Item.
TIME IN MODEL is the duration that an individual Work Item has existed in the simulation.
