I have stuck in my internship project.In the project i am trying to simulate parallell test stations' performance so that number of parallel stations number will be determined .Briefly, products come through conveyor and pass to the nearest test station if available.After test finishes, products use same conveyor to exit the system.My problem is how to connect each buffer station to relevant conveyor position by using sensor.
I will be so appreciated if you can help to solve my problem.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You cannot directly (through connector) connect a sensor with objects.
You need to write a (individual) method to transfer the mu
at the sensor point to the (closest/ individual) buffer.
(@.move(buffer) will move the MU to a buffer)
Plus you have to add the MU to every Sensor.
At station exit you have to make sure that the exiting MU will
will be placed at the right position on the conveyor
Also through an additional exit method.
To speed up this way of modelling
you can automate the sensors / method creation
by a programed method
In any case it will be a good experience to do so -once.
It would have been easier, if you had posted your core
question right at the beginning.
At the moment it is still not clear, what problems you had
in programming the move to put a focus on that issue.
The way you (team) are persisting on the least best solution ( sensors + methods)
gives me the impression that is more a guidelined homework for school.
In any case here is a general advise:
Please have a look in the help file.
@.move / @.transfer will not only move the parts to the target plus
you can add another parameter for the position
on the length orientated objects like carriers
