Hi,

Can some one suggest me where do I need put Buffer and how much Capacity for Buffers.

In source(Quelle) Tabelle = partA   250

                                partB  250

                                partE  300

In source(Quelle1) Tabelle1= partC  200          (pink line)

                                 partD  250                         (black line)

Now is ok , utilization of machine is ok,output is ok too, but I want to put Buffers and than with 

ExperimentManager tool find what is the best amounts of capacity for Buffers

Thanks

Hello Andreas,

 

if output and utitization is okay, then you don't need more buffers. Buffers and the stocks in the buffers causes costs, so buffers are not a "must have", normally you have to reduce buffers to save production space and costs. You can look for a minimum buffer size (to get the requested output) for the buffer you have already in the model or change the location.
