I'd like to be able to control the seeding of an Event Generation in SimEvent

I have an event I want to create every year with a distribution associated with it. Say +/- 6 months distriubuted normally.
As a beginner, I've started with dt=rand(1,1)*12, just to get a feel for what happens: this is working giving a distribution between 0 months and 12 months. I ask also don't know how to control the seed for the randomness?
For some context, I'm writing a model to understand a manufacturing supply chain, the events a new product line, with a probability of success attributed to them. I want to understand the variability in capacity I need to build into the R&D and Commercial supply chain.

You are able to control the seed used for randomization used in SimEvents. See here:
Hope this helps, Teresa


Hi, I should have also said you can set the seed to a particular event action as well. (This is probably what you were looking for.) -Teresa
