How can workstation choose entities on priority basis

Recommended Posts

How can I set up a workstation to choose entiites on basis of color. My workstation is getting inputs from 5 different Sources that produce a different color. Each color represents a priority level. Later on I want to calculate the individual process time of each colored entities in experiment.

By "choose entiites on basis of color" do you mean that your workstation process times are different based on the "type" (color, a sting variable) of the entity being processed?



If affirmative, you could use a Math.If expression to determine process times for a short number of cases, or a table if you think that the number of different types ( = colors) of entities could be high.


There are some Simbits that could be useful to illustrate this case, you may want to have a look at the one called "Discrete lookup table" .

You might also look at the SimBit WorkstationWithSequenceDependentSetup that does something similar to your request.


If your color simply illustrates a priority, then you should probably just use the internal ModelEntity.Priority state as it was intended and perhaps just set the entity's Current Symbol Index to ModelEntity.Priority.
