01=Object Display Panel - how to display entry and exit times?

Genius

Hi Forum Readers,

First question from me so please be patient.

This may not be the best way to debug a model (also a first attempt at an original model after a quick training course), but I want the display panel for each object (18 workcentres in a serial production line) to display the last MU's entry and exit time.   So that I can compare it with a reference case running in Excel.

I can display the number of items that have entered and exited - using the StatNumIn and StatNumOut obj properties, yet cannot find what I would expect to be StatTimeIn and StatTimeOut.

What I would really like though is the first entry and first exit time, since by the time the artefact exits the production line about 8 have been produced by the first WC, and I really want to check the time sequence of the first MU through the line, to verify the PlantSim model is consistent with the Excel model

Thanks in advance

An attribute like statTimeIn- / out does not exist.

 

Have a look here to calculate station /Mu related timestamps / cycletimes :

If you want to know entry and exit time for each MU, use

 

use method to record

 

eventcontroller.absSimtime in exit control and entrance control of SingleProc

 

it records the time When MU enter the SingleProc and when it goes out
