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.
