Using a Method for Assembly


Hi, I want to use method for assembly "when an entity is coming from a buffer and a source then it combines and sends it to the storage."

one of the parts needs to be a container or a transporter; if you have e.g. a place (as buffer), on the place is the container, you can access the container with place.cont; if you have an exit control at the source; you could wait for a container on place, move the MU to this container and than move the container to the next station:

waituntil place.occupied prio 1; --wait for the container
@.move(place.cont); --move the MU into the container
place.cont.move(nextStation); -- container to the next station

The assembly station can do this without any programming.
