Buffer holding parts

Creator

Hi,

 

I have a problem with my model and would appreciate some help from you guys!

 

In my model the source is generating the MUs according to a Delivery Table. This is done correctly, but the problem lays in the buffer that receives the MUs from the buffer.

 

The buffer won't send the MUs to the successors until the source has generated all 1000 MUs. How can I make the buffer send the MUs to the successor continously when it receives MUs?

 

The buffer has capacity -1.

 

 

Thanks,

Mal

Hi!

 

The creation time is a Delivery Table, which consists of a list of different times for different MUs. The dwell time of the Buffer is set to 0.

The problem was the Calendar in which I had set a start date and an end date. When I deleted these two fields it worked again.
