conveyor stopping unexpectedly.

Hi Community users,

 

I have a main conyeor from which 2 workers are pulling parts and putting in near by buffers as well as on a conveyor(RCinfeed3). I defined successor for each part based on its reference number in TableFileIf successor is 1 or 2 they can place part on any of buffer1 or buffer2 which ever is open. Again there is a constraint that first fill buffer1 then go to buffer2 (while buffer1's entrance is locked).

 

The buffer are supposed to get 7 parts (until then its exit is closed). Then entrance of buffer has to be closed and exit open to let 7 part out. Unfortunately this is not happening. Only one part is going out of buffer. I think the error is because I created a Method1 & Method2 (which are supposed to reset the entrance as open & exit as locked after 7 parts). Also I am getting a syntax error(attached).

 

Second issue I am running into is:  The workers collision. By collision, I mean they are both going to put part on conveyor at the same time. Then I am running into another error. (syntax error1.png). sometimes, the worker is waiting at the workerpool, I dont know why.

 

I keep pressing F5 whenever the debugger pops up and continue the simulation, until finally the main conveyor(starting conveyor) stops suddenly. 

 

Please help with model. I will be greatly indebted. Any kind of help is greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Vaidehi

var flag:boolean

2. the worker should go to the destination of the part

is there a connector at the end of the conveyor?

Hi Steffen,

Thanks, that worked. There is no connector at the end of the conveyor. But the conveyor still stopped.
