I want to unload a truck carrying pallets at an assembly shop. The truck is carrying 99 pallets..and in actual scenario to unload 99 pallets it takes 15 min set up time and then 15 minutes for unloading of all pallets. But in plant sim if I am giving time it takes it as total time and my shop keeps on waiting for oallets. It should be as soon as 1 pallet unloads it should go and then next pallet by pallet how cani do that. Infact I have 3 kinds of trucks carrying different pallets 51, 99 and 36 please see attached pic

How will puttting a parallel proc help during disassembly.
Pallets after unloading from truck enter the storage 1 by 1 as they unload they start loading into the storage.
The total process takes 1 hour example. In model how do i model that?
Basically in the model when a truck of capacity 99(filled with 99 pallets) arrives at truck bay(disassembly block) pallets instead of unloading 1 by 1, unload all at once when time feeded in the block (1.5 hour ) gets over. This 1.5 hour is fed on the basis of actual time taken at bay by truck to unload 99 pallets. I want to model this situation
Instead of using Disassembly station, make use of three Transfer stations for each type of truck to unload the pallets from the truck.
Transfer station will unload the pallet one after the other so the line will not be waiting & you can also specify the actual time to unload a single pallet in it.
No My case is -
1.Truck enters bay
2. Truck Sets up - 20 Min
3. Truck starts releasing pallets one by one each pallet takes 45 sec to leave truck
4. According to no. of pallets in truck-truck fully empties.
Please find the attached file with Tarnsfer station object to unload the truck.
