I am using tecnomatix 13.1.1. and i have a problem within a Event Based simulation in line simulation mode. 
First, i am not sure if i can the define the problem exaclty. Basicly no part is shown when my simulation is started. 

 A part  or some of parts is can be seen only in "apperances" in object tree. but its icon has "cross". 

I think I realy need a basic knowledge of how to use "material flow viewer". 

I read everything about material flow in help menu but i could not succed it. I need your help.

Hi Burpee,

actually there is no obvious mistake in your screenshot.

You have an INIT step and hopefully parts are assigned to the ops in your Mat-Flow-Viewer.


Also the fact, that you get appearances instead of parts is correct.

Parts do not exist in CEE, only appearances.


But appearances having a cross, ist really strange.

Are you sure the corresponding parts are correctly displayed also when loading as time-based study?
