Routing in - different collect amount
Firstly, I hope someone can help me. I am currently doing a semester project where Simul8 is used as a tool (Simul 8 2010 Exclusive Educational Site Edition).
I have 4 products at a windmill component production line (big components)
Unlimited arrivals is assumed.
Each work station e.g. Moulding has 17 stations, therefore I have replicated that with 17.
Coating is 30 and so on.
Hence, in the pre-assembly area there is 5 workstations, but for these I need to route in and assembly.
As you might now, it is not possible to repicate and collect at the same time.
Therefore I have created 5x Pre-assembly stations.
These 5 assembly stations must collect different number depending on which of the 4 products it is..
It is a shared resource so all products can be assembled at these 5 stations, but
e.g. product 1 needs to assemble 4 components to 1
Product 2 needs to assemble 2 to 1
Prodct 3 needs 3 to 1 and so on.
There is no queue before pre assembly, it is directly from the workstation before.
How can I fix that?
