FactoryFlow splitting the flow by percentage not working

Pioneer

Hi,

I'm experimenting with FactoryFlow. I tried to split the materialflow of my assembly and parts.

When i type in the percentage in each move-arrow, it seems to work. But when I chose an other part or assembly, all the adjustments are gone, and the failure appears: "the sum of all move-arrows must be 100%"

Is this a bug of Factory, or do i have a mistake in my model?

I am using Factory 2016.

I tested your file in FactoryFLOW V2016. I was able to edit the move percentages in both the Move Properties and the Part Routing definitions below without any issues. As long as the move percentages totaled 100%, I did not receive any messages. Clicking on another part or assembly did not impact any changes I made to the move percentages. File with updated move percentages attached.

When i opened your file without changing anything and i klicked on the Foot Assembly the same problem appears.

All values are put up to 100% and the message that it hast to bee 100% appears.

 

I do have a student, who has the exact same problem.

Is it possibile that we do have a different version of AutoCAD or Factory?

I'm using AutoCAD2016 and Factory2016. I didn't do any changes of the properties.

 

Thank you for your answer.

regards

Same versions of the software. Are you working with English install/OS?

No I'm working with the German install (both AutoCAD and Factory) and German OS (Win 8.1)

I just tried the english version of Factory 2016. It is working now. I can change the values of the percentage split.

It seems to be a problem with the German version of Factory2016.
