Setting MU destination with a button.

Experimenter
Experimenter

Hello guys I'm new here and this might sound weird but as the title say and as you can see in the project I have 6 stations with 3 transporters, 2 for stocking in stores and 1 for the gathering, what i want is to make 2 buttons for every store that make the agv put or take the entity away.

As I said this might sound a bit weird but i have this project about AGVs and I need a simulation of a full automated storage house. And of course if someone have a better idea to simulate such a project please tell me.

thanks and have a nice day.

in your project you already move automatically the parts to the AGV using the TransferStation

What do you want to do with the buttons?

The buttons are to choose which store I want the agv to go to 

As you can see the AGVs here goes from store 1 to store 6 putting the entities one by one but for an exemple I need a button to make the AGV stock only in store 3 and ignore others.

I know that I can set destination every time in the MU routing but I need an easy and a simple way that I can show during a presentation such as simple buttons with a method that change destinations with a click.

I already tried to make such a method but I failed a lot and I kept getting all kinds of errors and thats why I came here for you guys.

I guess better would be,if you insert a DropDownList (from UserInterface folder) into your frame. There you can place the destinations and you can collect this on a sensor to set the right destination for the AGV

Excuse me but I'm a slow learner, I think The dropdown is actually a better idea but after inserting it and making a list of destinations, how can I control the AGV destination with that list.

An exemple will be much appreciated.

you need to prepare some things in your model:

- change the sensors infront of the stores to "only if destination" and assign the stores to this sensors, I have done this only for store10 and store8

 

- add all other stores into the list of the drop down box

 

- you find the control in the exit of the lane B; I set the destinations into the table destinations and set this table as the destination of the AGV; this control you need to complete
