I am using a standard license and working on a simulation where I have several workstations. Some of these are ‘dummy’ stations where worker resources are required while the line processes continue. A remote workstation setup ‘dummy station’ will be triggered by another station on the line based on a MU attribute value i.e. not after every part. The operator needs to go to the station and perform a setup but after the operator has completed the setup there is a warm up time before the machine restarts, but the operator needs to move to another station before the warmup is complete.
Simply stated how can I get the operator to only tend a station for part of the total machine setup time?
If you leave the Importer > Processing deactivated and just activate the Importer > Set-up option, it will do what you want.
Thank you for the quick response.
I'll give some thought to addding it to the processing time. As I tried to explain this is a 'dummy station' . The parts that flow through this station aren't used. I only have the station because I need a worker to perform a task elsewhere that is tracked without disruppting the workcell. It is a simple source , station, and drain. I unlock the drain on this dummy station to call the operator from another line.
