You can use the staorage crane. Every time a part enters the storage crane, remember the part and its quantity in a table for example. As soon as a demand arises, you can check if the part is stored and if so, you can use the method getPart of the staorage crane to move the part out of the storage.

Hello Pratik,

 

I created a small demo model using the storage crane the function getPart to get parts out of the storage crane.

Remember on tab Removal you have to remove the checkmark at 'Remove after this time:' otherwise the storage crane will remove the parts automatically.

 

Hope this demo model will help.
