More resource, server capacity should double

<t></t>  

  1. 1. <t></t>

Hello guys,
If we add one more resource (worker) to a server, the capacity is basically doubled.
I am not able to identify that on a simple model with 1 server and 2 workers.
Please any help,

What is the worker doing? Used as a secondary resource? If so and you have left the Server at its default capacity of 1, there would be no effect. Also if one worker can block the entry of the second to the server (e.g. it does not Park while working), there would also be no effect.

Thanks for your reply.
Actually, The server is a workstation and the worker is performing its job on it.I put the worker as I secondary resource. When I add add one more worker, I am expecting more capacity (processing time will be reduced by half) but the model still doing the same job as if there is just 1 worker.
Thank you.

Workstation is fixed at capacity 1 so increasing the quantity of secondary resources available will have no effect. Perhaps you should change to Server and make it capacity 2 or more. I suggest moving this discussion to the Simio Insiders forum where you can attach a model file.
