i've found a problem in my model.
as you can see below
in the green field there is my productive cycle; it's a normal manufacturing company with cnc machines.
I've made some code to collect the flow times of all the MUs passing through the production line.
Today i've seen all the MUs passing through CNC (the first 2 are higlighted but they all share the same problem), that is the first stage, are not recording their cycle times.
I've noticed Event controller is not running because i load the materials for the CNC by the init method.
I used the init method because i need a store for placing materials.
I think that probably simulation times starts after init method has finished.
What i don't understand is why simulation time "skips" the whole CNC stage and not just the loading of materials.
However the questions are: how can i solve this problem? or eventually, how can i start the event controller, and so simulation time, in a precise moment (for example after it has finished loading materials)?
Solved! Go to Solution.
now i understand the problem; but the logic has been done around the real production line.
The MU in the buffer (Bi8) are the raw materials, they enter in the CNC where, at the exit, you will obtain the worked material.
If i delete the mu representing the material in the buffer and i create the worked material there it's a bit strange picture of reality.
You will surely already faced a problem like that, how did you resolve it?
