Need a Worker to act as a TransferStation

Creator

Hi Experts,

 

I'm new to Plant Sim and am having problems programing a worker to perform a simple task. I need the worker to pick up parts off of a pallet at a dismantlestation and carry them over to a singleproc on another line while leaving the pallet to continue down the original line. What is the easiest way to accomplish this and will I need to write code for this?

 

I've attached what I have so far.

 

Thanks in advance

you could use a simple SingleProc with the exit strategy "Carry Part away". You only need some line of SimTalk in the entrance control of the workplace:

- adress the part

- load the part to the worker

- release the pallet

 

e.g.

 

--adress the part
dismantle.cont.cont.destination:=singleProc2
--load the part to the worker
dismantle.cont.cont.move(@)
--release the container
dismantle.cont.move(line)
