How to simulate a worker driving a transporter?

Hallo Community,

I have a transporter which is loaded by the worker at location A, then the worker drives the transporter to location B, unload the parts and drives back. The problem is how to find the correct utilisation of worker in this situation.

The loading and unloading time can be seen in the worker chart or statistics easily but how can show the time when the worker is driving the transporter in the utlisation?

Any help is appreciated!!

it is impossible, you cannot load the worker on a transporter

there are different workarounds:

- the worker is carrying the transporter (just change the animation)

- use a transporter instead the worker (see here: https://www.bangsow.eu/detail_en.php?id=544)

Re: How to simulate a worker driving a transporter?

Hello Mr. Bangsow,

 

I dont want to load the worker on transporter. 

I just want to show the worker as working while the transporter is driving.

Actually i am just trying to find how much free time the worker has.

for that i must add the driving time of the transporter to the working time of worker.

I just want to achieve the mathematical value.

is it somehow possible?

yes, you only need a singleProc with importer, if you don't need the animation of the transporter, you can load the transporter on the singleProc for the transport time (in this way you also have the dependence between transport and worker) , otherwise you move a mu on the singleProc. Set a special service for the transport to have later on the statistics.
