Hello Simio Insiders!
Currently, our group is working on a project regarding queue-systems and how to optimize them. We´ve chosen to look at Burger King and how they operate. Here, we would like to come up with a few suggestions (through simulation) about how they can do things differently. For example, how an extra worker would affect the queue or how a decrease from 5% to 1% in machinery failure can affect their revenue.
We’ve managed to set up a rather simple model with the source, the order point, three different stations depending on what the customer orders (set up with discrete distribution) and a sink. We´ve also added a worker entity as seen in our model. The reasoning behind this is that the worker enters the order point when the customer sets the order and then follows the path to either one of the three following stations depending on what the customer has ordered.
However, our current problem is that the worker passes by all three nodes every time an order is placed and he ends up at the same station every time as well (3rd station).
We would really appreciate any kind of feedback that we can get. We’ve watched multiple YouTube videos concerning Simio, but we haven’t really found a video that highlights these exact problems that we’re mentioning.
Best regards, Haris Sabic
