One workstation/server with several 5 different processes

Post by freshbio » Tue Aug 23, 2016 11:17 am

Hi everyone,

I have following issue:
People arrive at a station (either server or workstation, I'm not sure about which to choose for my model) and stay at this station (person is not moving until all of the following 5 steps are completed).
Afterwards following steps appear:

1. worker (A) is doing a process step at the person
2. Another (different) worker (B) is doing a process step at the person
3. The person is doing a "process step" by his own
4. Worker (B) is doing another process step
5. Worker (A) is doing another process step
Afterwards the person leaves the station.

Could anybody help me with modelling this?
Do I have to use a server or a workstation?
Do I have to subclass an object?
And how in all to modell this.

Thank you!

Best wishes

You can do that with the Task Sequences within our Server object. You can also find more examples of using Task Sequences using the SimBits search.

First, place a Server and change the Process Type to ‘Task Sequence’ and enter the Processing Tasks repeating property editor.
Y
our processing steps would be similar to those you specified:
Task 1 – specify the Processing Time and under Resource Requirements, indicate that you need WorkerA
Task 2- specify the Processing Time and under Resource Requirements, indicate that you need WorkerB
Task 3 – specify the Processing Time
…. and so on

These tasks will all be performed before the entity leaves the Server.
