Moving "x" MUs from Store to Assembly

Creator

Hello Everyone,

The task I am trying to do, requires that 2 MUs from "IntermediateStorage (Store)" should be moved to "Assembly Station". This should keep happening unless the store gets emptied or simulation time stops. 

I am placing the MUs in "store" from buffer, 10 at a time and  placement is done in order. This order of placement can be seen in console window. 

For the Assembly, one part is coming from "Basis" and the other two should come from "Store". Now, I am unable to configure/program this in "StorageExit" method.

Any help or guidance would be really appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

Best regards,

Asad Mahmood

Hi everyone,

I have tried to write "StorageExit" method. If I insert this method into the Entrance Control of Store, there comes an error. It is becasue it does not let the Buffer to place 10 MUs at a same time. As I am taking out 2 MUs from store to Assembly but this method does not let Buffer to place 10 MUs in the store at the same moment which is causing the error.

Now, I am stuck that where can I insert this method?

Kindly have a look at this model.

First: you need to follow rules regarding the AssemblyStation. Main part and parts to be assembled must be provided by different connectors. You cannot use the store directly, but you can use a interim buffer for providing the parts to the AssemblyStation. The AssemblyStation first moves the main part and then the other parts (depend on the assembly list). So you can use an exitcontrol (rear) in the Source_Basis to move each two parts into the interim buffer (see example).
