I am trying to create an example in which in the production line I have a heat treatment machine setup. In general the input for heat treatment machine is in batches. so for example I am heat treating parts in batches of 50. How do I simulate this scenario in PS.
PS: I have machines (single proc) before heat treatment stage. So my scenario is like this: I have to accumulate 50 parts before Heat treatment stage. then process 50 times at a time in the Heat treatment stage and this processed 50 parts will be input for machines after the heat treatment stage,

you could load these 50 parts into a container (e.g. with the help of the AssemblyStation) and the container runs through the heat threatment, after the heat-threatment you unload the container

I have same problem like this but there is a difference is i have 3 process:
1. Preheat: 12 hours processing
2. VPI: 7 hours processing
3. Curing : 15 hours processing
These is batch process. That mean each process will do 2 parts. Rarely processing with 1 part.
I try with your model after modify buffer capacity to 2 but the result it have quite big different with actual.
Would you please kindly advise?
