Delayed Inflow

Items (or quantities of material) arrive from outside the defined problem space. These are added to the DELAYED CONTENTS, but inflow to STOCK cannot take place immediately. Inflow to the stock of primary interest, STOCK is delayed.
     Delay Time is used to set the length of delay (and a variety of types of delay may be involved, though a pipeline delay is represented here). The rate-controlling auxiliaries at either side of DELAYED CONTENTS are linked. This might be specified as a pipeline delay as described in the module First Order (Pipeline) Delay. Items, or material, flow out of STOCK and across the module boundary according to separate governing business rules.
     The description of the module is at
