Find next free worker for carry part away action

Hi,

 

I use different production cells. Workers carry the parts from one production cell to another (exit: carry part away).

How can I figure out the nearest free worker and tell the production cell to use him for carry away action?

 

If I set the Workerpool miles away from the production line. The second action is still done by the second worker even if the first Worker next to the station is free.

 

Thanks in advance,

C_M

you could wait for the next free worker (availableForMediation) and calculate the distance to his location (see _3D.position).

To call one specific worker, you can assign special services to each worker and you can assign the service for carry part away dynamically (transportImp.setServices) in the exit control of the stations.
