How to assign parameters to individual entitys

Creator
Creator

Sorry if this has been posted already, I'm fairly new to this forum.

 

As you can see in the picture, I have two identical operations in series. I'm having trouble efficiently sorting the entities between the two operations. I have it set up to sort at SingleProc11 but I'm wanting SingleProc1 to detect if the entity has already passed through MBHPressOne. Is there a way to assign paramaters to the entities individually?

First: there is a special Plant Simulation forum, it is better to post your questions there
You need two steps: the attributes you can add in the MU in the class library (tab user defined attributes)
In the exit control (rear) of the press you can set a value --> this you can use eg. in the tab exit strategy --> MU attribute to select the right successor

Thank you for your response. I'll post future questions in the PlantSim forum.

 

I followed the steps you listed, however the MUs still aren't taking on the value of "true" after they leave MBHPressOne. I added an attribute in the class library under the user defined tab, then I went to the exit tab on the MBHPressOne and on the dropdown I selected MU Attribute. I then clicked Open List and added my user created attribute from the MU. I set the value to true on that attribute. 

 

What have I done wrong to prevent MBHPressOne from changing the value from "false" to "true"?

I posted a screenshot of my model in the original post, if that's what you are referring to.

If the MU passes the first press,you need set your attribute to true --> then it works

Right, that's what I don't know how to do.
