StorageCrane not storing parts simultaneously from source


I am modelling with a storageCrane connected to a source that generates different parts in lots of 20 units. The storage crane has a capacity of 24 units. These parts are transferred to a single proc by the storage crane with getParttoObject method.


Once the storage crane is fully occupied, it starts transferring parts to the successor. It transfers 20 parts, and then starts filling up the storage again.This keeps the source blocked. Even if there are empty spaces on the storage crane, the source is blocked until all the parts of the same type are transferred.


I want the crane to simultaneously fill the storage so that this arrangement also works with a random generation of MUs at the source compared to the current mode which is 'sequence'.


Any ideas?

Hi Sanchay,

since you have already tried something, it would be helpful to upload your current model, so we can check it and see how to fix your problem. Sometimes looking at the model helps understand the problem setting better.
