Failures in process


Hi Everybody.


I have a particular case to simulate where I am in need to find out what should I do.


Some pieces come from a source to a buffer, then a robot picks them and takes them to a scan, if they are "OK" they can continue, if they are "not OK" they go to a "BadPieces" marker, later on to the Dump. (There's a 20% they are wrong)

From the 80% that are "OK", they go through a "OKPieces" marker and then get a stamp, where a single worker inspect manually if the stamping is done right (from all the pieces that come here 20% are wrong), so the worker takes the bad pieces to the respective Dump, and the good pieces to a Delivery Station where they continue their path.


Im not sure what Methods to use and I have some doubts about how to connect the worker stations, Can anybody please take a moment of your time to help me out?


A working model would mean the world to me. Thanks

you will need for rework and io process e.g. singleProcs with connected workplaces, you can use an exit control in stamping for dicing a random number and set depend on the result the destination of the MU. If you set the exit strategy of stamping to carry part away (let the destination empty), the worker will transport the part regarding to the destinations set in the exit contol.
