Picking up boxes

Pioneer

I want to simulate a system when a process is done on a part and the parts are collected into a box as a worker when full the worker picks up the box and supplies it to other single proc where the other process is done on each part in the buffer

the easiest way is to "produce" from and to the box and then move the box like in your model

i tried the model u have suggested and the first half of my problem is solved but it doesnt process single parts after the box enters the next station rather the whole container is processed and drained ... and i want every part from the box to be processed the next station... second example was too complex to understand and yet it had worker picking up things from multiple stations rather multiple parts from one station

Here is an example for producing "out of  a box".

You could place the box on a place beside the machine, in the exit control of the place you move the first part to the machine. In the exit control of the machine you move the part to another box at a second place. If the box at the second place is full, you call the worker (@.move at the second place) and move the now empty box from the first place to the second place, if this place is empty....

if  i want to use a worker to move pallets from one buffer to another what changes should be made

you can move the parts with the exit strategy "carry-part-away". To prevent, that the worker is moving empty boxes, you can use an exitcontrol on the (finished-) part-buffer, like this:

waituntil @.full prio 1;
@.move;--call the worker
