Hello experts
I need to simulate a process that has 4 sequencial stations.
Station 1 --> Station 2 --> Station 3 --> Station 4
But the station 2 has fourr robots around it, and the part is only processed when these 4 robots its ready and working
One of these robots is responsable too for get the part from previous station and, after other robot give to the next station.
It's very similar to importer concept...

Anyone has suggestion about the easyest way to model this situation?

the handling robots you could model as PickAndPlace robots, the other two as exporter. With the exporter you can model failures and blocking by other processes

Thanks Steffen...
I've thinked in use PickAndPlace, but these robots make 2 jobs, handling parts and than, these same robot works at station together with others three robots.
My objectvies is get statistcs about all robots.
If you have any ideia or tip I appreciate it

I have developed for this topics my own library based on track and transporter
see here the approach:

It is sensor based, so you are free to program all you need for the process.
