Hello everyone
I want to simulate ferries traffic between two banks of a canal
I have the duration of (loading+unliading) onshore (8 Min) and the voyage time of crossing the canal (7 min)
The ferries work during the whole day but the ferry number is different according to the time.
At dawn, 2 ferries. At Mornign 5, At peaks 7 ferries, At night 5 again and so on.
Any suggestions please
Many thanks in advance

I think you need discrete-event simulation. Check Simulink's dedicated library for DES, called SimEvents.

Many thanks for your answer. I think it requires a probability function or something like this
