I have an issue wherein i have to come up with an optimised schedule for various products(in this case product A,B and C). The layout is as shown below,
The only input i have as of now is the total demand for products A,B and C and the cycle times of "Machine_A","Machine_B" and "Machine_C" which are all same.
Please let me know if anyone has any idea regarding this.
Many thanks in advance,

I want to maximise the throughput for all the three parts combined. In this particular scenario all the machines have same processing time and have no setup time.
if you have no "variable" inputs you can proceed as follows:
set all sources to interval=0, set an end in the event controller -->
your model will deliver the maximum output
(this you can also very easy validate in excel, just calculate simulationtime/procTime)
if you want to do batch or sequence optimization, you should use only one source (with delivery table or sequence cyclical). There should be some bottleneck (togheter for for all parts) and some diffences (e.g. output, costs) if you change something in the sequence of the source (e.g. setup times).
