I am fairly new on here and i have just started using Plant simulation student version 13. I am currently creating a generic model for a production line. There is 4 incoming sub assemblies that feeds into a main line and 1 main components. I am struggling to find a way to combine the 4 sub assemblies MUs at the 'Assembly' with the main MU. I have also created worker pools for each sub assembly station as well as for the main line but the workers go work any where there is space available instead of working at the station in which they are assigned to. Can you anyone please assist?
It's not completely clear what are you trying to do.
I've created a simple model with line which processes both main MUs and SubAssy. Some notes:
Obviously, model produces not enough "Boolster" parts, as it's buffer is empty.
I've modified your model a bit by creating method which is run from the ExitControl of each line's last buffer and checks whether there's free space for this part before assembly.
I did not delete your method, just inserted "return" instruction to the first line.
Also please note that you can assembly only one Main part at a time. If you need to assembly two main parts, they should be treated like other components. In this case you can create a source which is connected to the Main Entrance of the assembly and produces containers. You can think about it like a "virtual" new assembly, which just contain all other parts.
