Example

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.
