Method for assembly parallel proc

Dear Community,

 

i need to use parallelproc to parallelize the assemblies; right now i use a method to put a container in an assembly and putting the materials in it. When it is full it'll be moved to the drain.

But the question arise when i need to use more assembly in parallel (see the image below).Copy.png

 

 

The image is just a sketch of what i need: for example in source1 containers are produced and in the other sources two type of materials are produced.

Normally, with an assembly station, the main MU from source1 are moved to the assy and then the other materials.

My question is: is it possible to use parallel station, with a method of course, to assembly more than one containers?

and which are the commands to access the free "singleproc assembly" in the paralleproc (if i had a x dimension of 3 ant y dimension of 1 the available "singleproc" will be 3; if the first one is in use, how can i access the other two?)

Thank you so much.

you could try an entrance control in the ParallelProc, the entrance control will be called for each MU (main-part) e.g. to load one part from buffer1 and buffer2:

buffer1.cont.move(@)
buffer2.cont.move(@)

Dear Steffen,

 

that could be an idea but, in real life, when you have to model multiple assembly, how do you do that?

Do you parallelize more "singleproc" assembly station?

the assembly station offers a rich set of functions, so you can prevent programming by using the assemblyStation. Starting from 14 you can connect the assemblystation with a store object to pull all  necessary assembly parts. And if you want to have a senseful statistics, multiple assemblyStations are better than a ParallelProc with a lot programming.
