Entry Strategy for a conveyor with two SKUs

Creator

Hello all,

 

First of all I want to point out that I'm very glad for the help of this great community. I've attached a file showing my model for the pallets area in plant in which i'm an internship. So, I've done all the hard part, but there is one single issue.

I have two SKUs: SKU50 (red colored) & SKU500 (green colored),

I want Line 99 (The line just before the 2 buffers) to enter 8 parts of one type of SKUs at a time, red then green.

Line 99 is already loaded at capacity 8 parts.

 

I've tried to enter a FlowControl, but I couldn't eventually figure it out. I don't know if it would be solved using SimTalk or Method, after all, unfortunately, I'm not good at using either of them, and I really want to learn them!

Can anyone please help me in this?

 

regards,

Shalabi

Hi!

 

Here's an example.

It can be done with FlowControl with sequence defined as entry strategy. sequence is 1 1 1 1 2 2 2 2 to take 4 parts of same color.

 

If you need some more complex behavior, you'll need to program it. In example order is always the same (if there are no green parts, logic will not take one more batch of red parts).

Regards, Vladimir.
