mean arrivals per hour

If I have the mean number of arrivals per hour for a day, what is the difference between creating a time dependent distribution with this data, and using the day planner instead?

    Hi! I think that while the Arrival Planner allows you to define how many Work Items enter the simulation at each hour of the day, a Time Dependent Distribution obeys to the timing defined at the Start Point's Properties, but changes the distribution of it for each hour of the day. Also, the Arrival Planner allows you to choose from only a few distributions, while a Time Dependent distribution enables you to choose any of the distributions provided by SIMUL8 (including Named distributions created by you).

    Hope that helps :)
