replenishment of the buffer by the worker as required


Hello everyone,

My name is Milan and I´am beginner in the Plant Simulation. I have one problem. I have workplace where are three assembly worktables (A1, A2 and A3), four buffers (B1, B2, B3 and B4) and one final assembly (FA) with buffer (B_FA). A1 create  MUs “a“ and “b“, A2 create MU “c“ and A3 create MU “d“. These MUs continue to the buffers (B1 - a, B2 – b, B3 – c, B4 – d) and from buffers continue to the final assembly (FA). Every assembly worktables has workers. The picture shows the model.


Now the problem is that I don´t know how create model that Worker on the A1 create Mus ( “a“ or “b“) as required by the B1 and B2. Capacity of all buffers is 4 pieces.  So when be empty B1 Worker create  “a“ first and when be empty B2 Worker create “b“.


Sorry for my english and thanks very much for the answers.

Hello Milan,


a worker cannot create a part.

In your model you have to insert a source object creating the part and a singleproc where the worker 'creates' the part.


Hope this helps
