Re: Make MU stay and wait in buffer

Hi Steffen,

 

thank you for looking into this.

 

How do I explain the screen-shot below, where the MU still enters the load station without the worker being there please? Is this a realistic wish at all, that MUs stay in the buffer until resource is available to load them or can Plant Sim not deal with this kind of scenario? I am very keen on representing the correct buffer occupancy before the testers without loosing the utilisation of the machines.

Many thanks for any feedback!

The importer calls the worker, if there is no worker, the importer waits for one.

It is difficult in your case to wait for a free worker, because the workers are offering different services, so I guess then you need to carry the parts from the buffer to the loading places by the worker (see attachment)

This is amazing and the simulation works exactly how it is on the  shop-floor in the real cell. Thank you Steffen!
