I don't know what are different between move and transfer command on tecnomatix plant simulation. when i use 2 command to move Mu from object to another object, i see it is same function.
Here's a quote from online help:
The method transfer transfers the MU designated by <MU_path> to the next material flow object. As opposed to the method move, the method transfer completely removes the MU from the active object. On point-oriented objects both methods display identical behavior.
On length-oriented objects, the method transfer removes the entire MU from the active object. The rear is not transferred to the length-oriented object!
