Baggage Claim

Post by hgserrano » Wed Jul 15, 2015 4:43 am

How can I create a Baggage Claim in a model? I've tried with a server where all passangers have to wait to the baggage, but i don't know if it is better to build a source or something like that

thanks!

It depends a lot on your objectives and desired level of detail.
--Simplest: Bags are members, passengers are parents, they both show up at a Combiner object.
--Better: I might model the carousel as a multi-stop circular conveyor and have entities representing bags come down the conveyer and entities representing customers come to the node to wait for their bags.

I would attach an example, but we can only do so in the SI forums, not the public areas (due to spam attacks).
