Transporter destination




I have multiple trucks of multiple capacities(say 99A,99B, 51A, 51B, 36A, etc.). I also have multiple pick and drop locations (Say Pick1,pick2, pick3, drop1, drop2, drop3). I have prepared a truck schedule so that minimum waiting is there at truck bay of loading and unloading shops which are being modelled by assembly stations and transfer stations


I have right now given the truck destination using table file(information flow) so that a route is developed for truck. It is working


But now I want when the model starts and sometimes it between when possible...truck should only move at the next destination at a particular time. for eg. destination should be empty and truck stopped at 6 am but at 7.30AM truck should move to next destination in the table file.


similarly another scenario I have given 5 objects as destination to truck in information flow table file. these it should cover in 1 day and stop, then again start from 1st one the next day.


I use plant sim 13.1

you can calculate the "waitingtime" for the transporter and use a wait command to wait

have a look at str_to_dateTime to create a datetime value from a string
other method: eventController.absSimTime for the actual date of the simulation run
