Wait time clarification

Hi,

I would like to understand how the Wait Time impacts the activity during a simulation.

Please see the attached picture for reference.

a) Is the wait time used for something else besides changing the process Lead Time?

b) What happens to the resources assigned to this task? Are they free or busy during the Wait Time?

Thanks

Good morning Lucas, the waiting time pretends to simulate the delay between a task is activated and the user proceed to work on it, this is an addition to the processing time to calculate the total expected time for the process.

The resources assigned to a task aren´t affected by this specific wait time.
