if you have such a clear assignment you can use for each set of stations a different WorkerPool and Broker which has just one worker.
Thanks for the help,but i have to send the parts to the station which is free out of the 4 station.i am using buffer to store the parts and then the workers carry the parts to the respective workstation.but the problem is i can assign only one MU target in the carry part away of the buffer .How can i assign the target in the buffer?
This would be the simplest with a little SimTalk. You should assign each workstation a unique service and have one worker for each service. In the Source you need an entrance control that selects the workstation, then you set that as the required service to carry the part.
the destination for the carry-operation you set with <object>.MUTarget.
To get the right worker, you need to change the service table of the transport importer:
You can use the exit control of the buffer to wait for an available machine and make the settings.
With @.move the worker is called.
