Entrance Control Problem




I have one more problem with my model. After I added in the actual processing times, the Reload station is getting backed and the worker is loading the pallets with parts when they hit the Line3 sensor, but before they actually enter the station. This is causing the entrance to Reload to be locked. Since the entrance and exit of that station are unlocked with the sensor method right after the worker loads the part onto the pallet, the worker cannot load a part on the pallet and trigger the entrance and exit to be unlocked. This causes both the loaded pallet and the worker to remain stuck and if I were to unlock the entrance early the worker would try to put the part on the line without a pallet. Is there any way to have the worker wait to load the pallets until all occupied pallets have exited the Line3 sensor and Reload?

you need to wait in the sensorcontrol of line3, until reload is free, before you start the loading process.
Insert into the first line:
waituntil reload.occupied=false

Than it works.

I guess I was overthinking it a bit.


Thanks Steffen!
