Transporter to not stop if buffer is empty

Hello,

 

I'm very new to Plant Simulation and I need help with my model.

 

The idea of the model is very simple: produce 3 different models of glasses according to customer request. Parts are placed in a buffer and transferred to another buffer with a milkrun, where they will be assembled and collected by another milkrun.

 

To do that, I created different Delivery Tables for each MU, with correct quantity that will be produced. To not fill all the transporter with one kind of MU, I set a maximum quantity to be loaded from each MU. However, when a certain MU reaches their created quantity for the day, the transporter stops at the corresponding transfer station because the buffer is empty and doesn't continue to collect MUs from others models of glasses.

 

How can I set the transporter to advance if there is nothing to pick up in a transfer station?

 

Thanks in advance
