Assembly station problem

Hi,

 

I have to make a simple modell, but I don't know, how can I assemble two parts. Ajtó1 and Test_01 or Ajtó2 and Test_02 ... The main MU is the Test_0x. The assembly station where I configure this assembling is the Assembly object. I've made a control, a method named: Met_vég, but it does not work. I cannot find what is missing or wrong with it. Can somebody help me?

 

Thank you in advance.

Re: Assembly station problem

this cannot work, if you want to assemble different types in one station, than every type needs to have its own connector with the assembly station. In the buffer the MUs are located in a "row", the assembly station can only access the first Mu.

Dear Steffen,

 

Thank you for your answer!

Would it be better if the MUs are the same, but their attributes are different?

Is it not possible to choose and pick up an MU from the Buffer? Maybe with a sorter would it be work?

 

Best regards,

PV

Re: Assembly station problem

there are some rules to follow, if you use the assembly station, one of them is: the MUs have to move to the AssemblyStation using connectors (until V. 13). Using the connectors, the AssemblyStation pulls the necessary parts from the predecessors. So the AssemblyStation needs to have a chance to find the right part.

You can pull the right parts from the buffer using SimTalk and move them to a buffer, but you will get problems, if the parts are not there (you will need to wait for them...).
I guess, you interpret the buffer too restrictive. The buffer can consists of many single blocks (like racks, areas on the shop floor, places for containers...). The easiest way (without programming) is: use a FlowControl (simple exit behavior --> MU name) to sort the MU by name into different (part) buffers --> connect all buffers with the AssemblyStation --> this will work
