I want to adance it further

I want that only one piece of part to be processed at a time and when part  comes  of them(part 2) should be processed at machine. 

 

Extra information:

Hello Pratik,

 

it is a typical application for the pull control.

 

In the example collection this control is used to avoid unnecessary setting up operation.

Please look at the Start Page: Category “Discrete material flow”, Topic “Pull control”, Example “Color sorting buffer”.

 

Goto Example Models on the Start Page and click Small Examples.

 

Regards,

Peter

Hey 

 I looked at the example but it woeks the different way. the parallelproc sorts the parts and the single proc processes only one part at a time. 

 

I want the source to send one piece of part 1 and two pieces of part 2 randomly. I want a machine to process that parts in the same way (one piece of part1 and two pieces of part 2).

 

The real requirement is:

I have two types of paper (big and small) rolls being process by a single machine.  If they get an order for small rolls than two rolls can be processed on that machine at a time and if they get order for a big roll than only one rolls can be processed by the machine. 

 

Thanks
