Make a station to stop processing a part

Hi,

 

A station changes processing time in a entrance control (set to "before actions"). In the entrance control I want to wait until some conditions are met (using the waituntil command), and then the station should start processing the part.

 

Can this be achieved?

no, the entrance control is the wrong place for this. After moving the MU to the station, Plant Simulation calculates the finished-time of the MU.
If you want to delay the start of processing, you need to delay the movement to the station (e.g. exit control of the predecessor) or you include a helping place to model the waiting.
