I need your help with please.
So my model must have the following conditions:
1- A product can be processed by only one station, so that when a product arrives at the conveyor A and that in the station 1 there is already another product, he passes his way and goes to the station 2.
2-And when a product has been processed by station 1 it must not be processed by station 2.
3-If it is possible to model the conveyor that brings the product to the stations, as being two-way conveyors.
I really do not know how to make a condition like this with the Method function, your help will be very useful to me.
Thank you very much for your time.
You will find attached my model.

To answer question three first: Conveyors are one way only. Using two conveyors going in different direction is, as far as i know, the recommended way to do it. Personally I also think it makes it easier to follow th. flow of materials this way.
As to your model, here's what I did:
If a mu goes to station 1.. 3, lock the conveyor1 (entrance) leading to the station(s).
When the processed mu leaves the conveyor2 back to the main conveyor
unlock conveyor1 entrance.
Create a user defined variable as flag to mark the MU as already processed.
At the conveyor junctions you then decide whether to process or not.
The easiest way in your case is probably to set the 2 conveyors over each other
