Hello, I want simulate the arrive to the factory of good pieces and pieces with mistakes. However, the number of pieces with mistakes oscillates between for example 0-4 in a determined batch of 25 pieces. So, we have a batch of 25 pieces and the pieces with mistakes oscillates between 0-4 with a known percentage for every number of mistakes per batch for example:

0 pieces with mistakes: 40%

1 pieces with mistakes: 30%

2 pieces with mistakes: 15%

3 pieces with mistakes: 10%

4 pieces with mistakes: 5%

In order to solve this I have thought to create 2 types of entities (Good and Mistake) and to establish the creation of the entities with a source in Sequence MU selection and linked to the table like this:

MU Number Name Attributes

.MUs.Good xx

.Mus.Mistake xx

The problem is: how to change with a method the number of good and mistake per batch according to the percentages previusly presented?

Thanks for your attention

Solved! Go to Solution.

Hi,

It is possible to do it without a method. In the number column you can define formulas. For row 1 you could write "Good" in the column Name and the following the Number column:

z_uniform(1,20,25)

and in the second row "Mistake" for the Name and the following formula in the Number column:

25-@[2,1]

This generates batches of 25 units compose of some good and bad parts.

This is a simple example to get some understanding. You can replace z_uniform with z_dEmp (look it up in the Help-file) to get the more exact percentages.

Thank you very much Nomden it works with the z_dEmp function in formula mode
