How can I arrange that the worker visits the importers in a pre-defined sequence. For example; he goes to 3 stations in order of Station 1, Station 2, Station 3 and then returns to the first station “Station 1” again. He always repeats the same sequence even though there are other importers waiting for him.
I think I should use Broker importer request controls (or workplace controls maybe) but I couldn’t figure out how. I attached a simple use-case.
Solved! Go to Solution.
It should work with the importer request control of the broker. If you define a sequence for the worker (as a list of objects) and a sequence position, then you can check, if the importer is the right station in the sequence. See the example for one worker.
Unfortunately in version 12 creates F4 a useless template for the importer request control.
Is there an alternative way to create that sequence? It beams to the workplace. Can I avoid it?
In my model, I added footpaths and I want the worker to use the foothpath to reach the destination. I will calculate the time the worker spends walking, carrying the parts etc.
Or should I better manipulate the time statistics manually, for example: adding length divided by worker's speed.
here is the model in V11
see the attributes in the Worker and the Broker-control. Just deactivate the broker control to see the different behaviors.
