Finish loading - Transporter

Hello everyone,

 

I have a situation where 29 parts are being produced on daily basis and stored in a Buffer. From here these 29 parts are loaded on to a Transporter and sent to an unloading station and later to drain.

 

This Transporter has a capacity of 6. So, the Transporter is taking 24 parts (6 parts * 4 times) and for the fifth time it is waiting for the 6th part because only left 5 parts are loaded. I want to finish the loadind here for the 29th part and repeat this process for 20 days.

 

Please help!

 

Regards,

Sharad

How do you move the parts?

Hello Steffen,

 

I am using Transfer stations to load / unload parts from Transporter.

then you could change the capacity of the Transporter depend on the number of parts, you need to Transport (e.g. sensor on the track + method). The capacity you can set using the attributes xDim/yDim

Re: Finish loading - Transporter

Hello Steffen,

 

Do I need to count the number of parts delivered and reset it every day?

 

1st Round - 6 Parts

2nd Round - 6 Parts

3rd Round - 6 Parts

4th Round - 6 Parts

5th Round - 5 Parts

 

This is how it should execute.

if you create each day 29 parts (set it in the source!), you dont need to count the rounds (the last round will have only 5 parts)

Check this sample model. May be you will figure something out of it. 

 

This model has the same process you explained. Parts getting produced 29 per day and they are moved in batch of 6 and the last movement will be of 5 parts.
