Pull MU's from a Buffer

Hello,

 

I have a buffer which has 1000 A Parts and I need to pull only 100 A parts / day.

 

I wanto pull these parts based on my daily demand (at drain). How do I execute this?

 

Please help. Thanks in advance.

 

Regards,

Sharad

Hi Sharad, 

 

you could introduce a method as a exit control for your buffer that limits your work in process to 100 in between your buffer and drain.

 

Example of how the method could look like:

 

var CurrWiP, LimitWiP : integer

LimitWiP := 100

CurrWiP := buffer.statnumout - drain.statnumout

 

if CurrWiP < LimitWiP

    @.move

else

    Waituntil CurrWiP < LimitWiP prio 1

    @.move

end
