You can study the Multiplier Simul Eqns example model to understand the function usage. The step() function is used in the formula of the GovernmentExpenditure dynamic variable: GovernmentExpenditure = 90 + step( 10, 1 ). If you run the model and switch to the Graphs page, you will see how the step logic affects the system behavior at the time 1.Demo model: Open the model page in AnyLogic Cloud. There, you can run the model or download it (by clicking Model source files).
