Is there a way to schedule resources in SimEvents? I am trying to model a manufacturing system were there are operators and machines. The operators can only work at certain hours but the machines can theoretically work all day. How would I implement this?
Thanks for any feedback!

Please go through this SimEvents example on Job Scheduling and Resource Estimation for a Manufacturing Plant. It will give you an overview of modeling a manufacturing plant too.

I have looked at it but this is a continuous schedule. I need something were the people only work 8 hours a day rather than 24/7. Is there a function block to implement this? Or would I need us a gate block and every 16 hours it causes the process involving people to stop?
