Sequence control required during a particular shift

[ Edited ]


How  can I adjust the flow control in such a way that it works and provides cyclic sequence strategy(2:1) during shift 1 that is when both the sub lines are working but it stops working and allows all MUs to flow during shift 2 when 1 of the sub lines is not working. The proc time of both the sub lines is different so all MUs are not available at all times during shift 1 too.

Re: Sequence control required during a particular shift

Hello Aagosh,

I tried to solve your problem. Please look at the attached model for Plant Simulation 12.0. I used an EntrySelectionMethod, because I believe that no Entry Behavior fits to your problem. The idea based on a variable object of type integer which counts the parts. When the variable has a certain remainder at the division by 3 then I use the first or the second predecessor of the InspectionLine.

Of course, this depends on the pause state of the AssyLine1 and AssyLine2.

Dear Peter


Thanks for the solution, it works perfectly

I while trying today came across an easier solution to this too...see attached model.


I think it will suffice too
