## MATLAB: Assigning a Triangular Distribution to Each Entity of a Process Flow Model of SimEvents

SimEventssimevents. process flow

I’m trying to model the flow of a process very similar to Mathworks’ Model “Aircraft Boarding Process Flow” (https://www.mathworks.com/help/simevents/examples/aircraft-boarding-process-flow.html). The model I’m trying to develop would be different in the following way. My model would have a unique triangular distribution for the time of each activity such as “Disembark.” Each activity of the Mathworks’ model has an option for supplying the block with a mean value only. The activity is modeled as an “Entity Server Block.” It would appear that one would assign a triangular distribution by attaching an event-based random-number attribute to each block. However, the Entity Server Block does not have an import port for receiving an event-based random number block. To represent each activity, should I be using a block capable of receiving the event based random-number block where I could specify a triangular distribution? Any comments would be very much appreciated.
