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.
Solved! Go to Solution.
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.
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
