This is example on how to model that an idle operator helps another operator with his process.

The first line (A_) is a "normal" line where each operator just works at his processor.
The second line (B_) is a line where after an operator finishes his process is checked if there is a specific time on the process left on the previous process. In this case the operator goes to this process and helps the other operator with the process. The new process time in this case is 50% of the remaining process time when the operator arrives.

The parameters for the process times (expression) and the value for the remaining process time when the operator should help can be defined on the Model Control GUI.

Another solution to build such a model could be to use a conveyor as the processor and use the command changeconveyorspeed() to change the remaining process time if an helping operator arrives.

Do not delete or rename the object Logo_FlexsimD, because otherwise the model will not work correct. Also do not rename, delete or rerank other objects.

This is a tricky problem that has been solved very elegantly. Nice job Tom! There are many concepts taught very nicely through this model. It's a good one to keep in our "back pockets".
