How to make a worker decide

Hi

 

I want to know if there is any logic that can tell the worker about loading and unloading the part from buffer to machine and viceversa based on the shortest reach, if the worker is operating 3 machines.

 

Regards

the buffer need to decide it; see here, we have discussed about how to control the worker:

Hi

 

Though i had used the logic input to the buffer as discussed before, at one point of time when any two of three machines say A and C rises request that its empty and needs part for processing, the availability of the worker is baffled and the simulation halts.

 

I have attached the model for your reference.In the model the machines A and C refers to SVM1 and SHM1 respectively.
