Release Specific Worker

Hi Forum

 

Is it possible to release a specific worker from a singleproc while another worker continues to work?

For example:

Worker1 only works for 10% of the total Proctime at Station1 but Worker2 works for the full duration.

 

How I understand is that ?.imp.releaseExporters will release all workers at the station.

 

Regards,

Hermias

one way would be to split the process up into two sub-processes, like in this example

so you can change the necessary number (and kin of) services.

I have made another example: here an work inspector has to work at the end of the processing togheter with the worker.

I use the entrance control (before action) to change the service table of the importer. The data are defined in a user defined attribute of the SingleProcs. At the end of the first sub-cycle I block the exit of the predecessor and move the part to the same station again. The entrance control is called again, and you can change the service table (and so the requested number of worker).
