I am a new user to Plant Simulation and I am having trouble simulating a worker putting a part into a machine before it processes the part. The worker must place a part in the station for 8 seconds before the station begins processes the part at an 8 second cycle time. The worker needs to leave the station after placing the part in the station. Does anyone know the proper way to simulate this station? Thank you for any help in advance!
Solved! Go to Solution.
in other words we need a SingeProc with a setup importer, which does not need services for the processing. Deactivate the checkbox Common resources. Please check the radio buttons Setting-up and Processing. The services for processing must be an empty table.
For your application (setup time for all parts) you will activate the checkbox After and select 1 part.
are you aware of the Plant Simulation Examples collection? There are lots of sample models with short explanations on each use case.
Several sections are related to workers and use cases around workers and operators.This might help help you with your current and possible future questions as well!
(You can open the examples collection model from the Plant Simulation start page and then you see the dialog below...)
