Only request failure importer for specific failures

Hello,

 

I have a situation where I am simulating a number of products moving through certain stations, but the stations are also shared with products that are not simulated. In order to achieve a more realistisc utilization of these shared stations, the plan is to limit the amount of available working time for these shared stations by setting a failure profile to represent the amount of percent that station is occupied with other products we are not simulating.

 

For this reason I need several failure profiles, in the simplest way: 1 profile for normal machine failures, and 1 profile that represents how many % of the simulation time that the machine is occupied with other products.

 

For repairing the normal machine failures (failure profile 1) I need an operator, but I don't want him to trigger a reparation service when the second "dummy" failure profile (failure profile 2) is active.

 

Is there a way to selectively choose which failure profiles should be serviced by operators?

you can define in the failure control (tools...) two parameters, with the second parameter you can access the profile name, so you can activate/deactivate the importer
