Buffer control with time


Hi guys


I am a starter with Plant simulation and I need help: I have to simulate a very simple intersection that has people going into one direction and cars blocking their way. Both only go into one direction, the intersection is very simple.

I need to know how I can make the exits of buffers (locked or not) dependent from the traffic light time. This means: the traffic light turns green = pedestrian buffer opens exit for a time X and car buffer closes exit for time X and vice versa.

How can I do this?

I have also another problem: how can I make more pedestrians leave the pedestrian buffer at once?

And once this group of pedestrians has left the buffer can I simply make them go into another buffer or do I need to make some special settings?

Ty for help

Hi Silafra,

the attached model for Plant Simulation 12 shows an idea.

Only one moveable element can be moved at a time.
