Set-up time depends on previous MU?

Creator
Creator

Hello everyone,

 

Is it possible to set set-up/processing times depending on previous MU in SingleProc?

For example to SingleProc1 go three MUs:

- entity1 with label "1"

- entity1 with label "3"

- entity1 with label "5"

If entity1 with label "1" comes to SingleProc1 the set-up time should be 10secs. Then if entity1 with label "3" comes to SingleProc1 the set-up time should be 20secs. Then if to SingleProc1 comes (again) entity1 with label "3" the set-up time should be 0 (because previous MU was the same as the next one).

How can I achieve it? I also apologize for the poor language skills. My knowledge of the program is not too big either, but i can create simple methods etc.

 

I will be very grateful for any help.

The easiest way is to choose Matrix as the type of distribution for the Set-up times. You can find it on the tab Times, the default value is Const.

Thank you. 

I cheked this option and read about it a little.

But unfortunately I don't know how to put "Label" in matrix. I mean that I don't know how to distinguish entity1 with label "1" from entity1 with label "2" etc. How can I do that?

By default, the concept works with the Name of the MUs.

 

An alternative could be to use the Formula option. Basically, it could do the same as the Matrix option, but it is more flexible.

So there isn't any option to set set-up times depending on mu's label? 

I looked at this Formula option, but i really can't get how it works, especially how to solve my problem with that.

yes, you can set a user defined attribute (e.g. label1) and set label1 instead  of label.
