Worker carrying part to workerpool

Creator
Creator

HI All,

I have a situation that eventhough I have entered a "Parts Buffer" in my model, the worker carries away the part at the end of the shift to the workerPool and not in the Buffer. Then the simulation stops!!

Any idea why would this happen?

 

Thank you in advance

try to use one buffer exclusively only for the workerpool, the worker will place his part there and after the break the worker needs to find this part there

I tried that as well. Does not work.

@araujopaulo  @Steffen_B I have tried to attached a copy.

I also have a deadlock, when i remove shift calendar from workerpool.

If you can give a feedback would be great Smiley Happy

the buffer is not the problem; 

you are triggering transports by the worker, where the destination is still occupied; so the worker cannot place the parts...

 

You need to program exit controls (front) where you wait until the next stop is empty; you should also lock the exit of the source, if you transport the parts to station

 

--> see exit controls
