Servers Processing Time for each Entity in Batch

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

I am currently simulating a 3D printing facility in the frame of my Bachelorthesis and I have a specific problem which I cannot solve by myself.


I have four Entity types with different lead times which are specified in a datatable as shown in one of the SimBit solutions. However, I need to batch the entities before they arrive in the workstation to simulate that several parts are processed within one 3D printing build job. The problem is that the workstation only calculates the leadtime of the parent entity and not of each individual member. Instead of calculating: 5hr + 4hr + 3hr + 2hr= 14hr for a batch of four entities, the machine only calculates 5hrs.


Is there any solution with a search step to explain the workstation that it should define the batch members and then to add the lead time for each of them according to my datatable and to use the sum as processing time?


I am really thankful for any help you can provide, so thank you very much in advance! :)

If you batch the Entities together, you can Search the ModelEntity.MemberBatch queue. Then sum the lead time for each member entity and the parent entity to get the total lead time.
