AnyLogic animates all flowcharts at model runtime by displaying some information that can be helpful to understand how the simulated processes go on. The basic color scheme for most of the Process Modeling Library blocks in the simulation window includes a number of colors (from silver to dark blue) to distinguish the current state of a block.
|silver||Denotes that agents haven't entered this block yet.|
|light blue||Denotes that agents have entered this block, but currently it is empty (i.e. does not contain agents inside).
| Light blue and dark blue|| ||Denotes that the block currently contains agents and an action is being processed.|
Processing of actions in the block is visualized by the moving dark blue horizontal or vertical bar (depending on the type of block).
For example, in
Delay block this bar denotes the remaining delay time for an agent currently residing in this block, in Queue block it denotes the current number of agents in the queue, and in
Conveyor and MoveTo blocks - the movement of an agent along the specified route.
|Lime green||Denotes ready-to-function state or functioning without blocking agents.|
|Lime green with question mark||Denotes functioning in "conditional" mode.|
|Red||Denotes that the Hold block is currently blocking agent(s).|
|Silver||This color of the block denotes that resources defined by this ResourcePool block haven't accomplished any tasks yet.|
color of the block denotes that resources defined by this block have
already accomplished or are currently accomplishing a task.
This color of the vertical bar shows current load of the block.
(light blue ->lime green ->gold
|The color of the segment on the left side of the block shows the block's overall load throughout the whole operating time.|
|lime green||Denotes functioning state, not blocking the entry.|
|red||Denotes functioning state, blocking the entry.|
