Downloads  Sample_FreeOperatorDuringFixedResourceBreakdown_TD : Sample_FreeOperatorDuringFixedResourceBreakdown_TD Task: A combiner is set up to breakdown per the MTBF/MTTR feature and an operator is on a schedule (TimeTable). The issue is the operator is sometimes "utilized" when the combiner is in the "breakdown" state. The issue only seems to occur when the combiner goes down while an operator is being used. I simply want the operator to be free when the combiner goes into the "breakdown" state and perform other tasks. Solution: The standard functionality in the breakdown does not free the operator. Using the Down in the MTBF/MTTR will free the Operator. This solves the issue that if the ... [more] (55.4 KB) 07-28-2010 2464 0
Downloads  Sample_ModifyNetworkDuringSimulation_TD : This model is a small example how to change the network for a taskexecuter during the simulation run. The first item gets released in the Source. To release the next item press the Release Item Button on the Control GUI. Release Item = Releases an item from the Source (Message send to Source). Init Network = Init the Network to 4 network nodes (User Command). Add NetNode = Adds Network Node NN5 and makes the connections (User Command). The idea is to give the taskexecuter the first tasksequence and if he is traveling to the NN2, press the AddNetNode to add an additional Network Node. The tricky bit is to know, which commands a ...

Downloads  Sample_Drawsurrogate_TD : Sample_Drawsurrogate_TD This model is a small example how to use the drawsurrogate functionality in combination with kinematics functionality in Flexsim. Two objects are put into the Processor in the added drawsurrogate node. The FlexsimDBox will change the color during the process. The FlexsimDCylinder will move and rotate during the process. The code can be found on the Processor in the triggers (OnReset, OnMessage, OnEntry, OnProcessFinish and OnCustomDrawCode). One of the reasons for using drawsurrogate is that an object can have movable subcomponents, but the user interface with it as one object, i.e. when clicked on it i ...

Downloads  Sample_TwoOperatorProcessWithoutReserveOnlyOneOper : Sample_TwoOperatorProcessWithoutReserveOnlyOneOperator_TD Task: 2 operators are required to do a process, but not start the process until two operators are free. It is important to not seize one operator then wait for the other. Both have to be in a state of idle to begin the process, and if they are never both idle at the same time then the process won't get done. Solution: Control the output of the Queue of the Processor (ProcessorA). OnMessage check the situation and if two Operators are available the item can leave to the Processor. The delayed message is send at OnEntry of the Queue and OnRessourceAvailable of each Operator ... [more] (69.4 KB) 06-24-2010 1981 0
Downloads  Sample_OneProcessorModelsMultipleProcessorsOperato : Sample_OneProcessorModelsMultipleProcessorsOperators_TD This model is an example how to model multiple processors and multiple operators only using one processor. The number of processors is the label TotalNumberOfProcessors of the processor, which sets the max content of the processor. The number of operators is the label TotalNumberOfOperators on the processor, which is used to control the input of the processor. All the code is on the processor. In the trigger OnEntry and OnProcessFinish the labels get updated and the input gets controlled. The OnCustomDrawCode shows some information and calculate them. Because it might not b ...

Downloads  TE FlowItem as Transport for other FlowItems : This model demonstrates how to use Task Executer(TE) FlowItems to transport other flowitems in the model. In the model you will notice that there is an Operator Source that is connected directly to the Sink. There are four network nodes in the model, each one is connected to a dfferent object. The TE FlowItems naturally would flow from the Source to the Sink via the NN1 to NN4 route. On Reset and every 186 seconds 8 flowitems are created by the Item Source and placed in the Rack. The flow in the Rack is set to not release the items and the Use Transport code is custom code that simply returns zero. There is some code in the messa ... [more] (41.3 KB) 08-21-2009 2194 0
Downloads  Sample_BasicConveyorReverse_TD : Sample_BasicConveyorReverse_TD This is an example for a BasicConveyor model. This model is baseed on the model Sample_BasicConveyorCutting_TD. An item enters the system and is getting conveyed. One issue was how to convey the item over the edge which is done by switching x and y size and using yoffset on the conveyor. The second issue was how to cut the item info half. This is done by changing the size of the item, make a copy of this item and put them in the right position on the conveyor. A basic conveyor is used, because with the standard conveyor in Flexsim it is not easy possible to set the location of items on the convey ... [more] (39.8 KB) 08-17-2009 2177 0

Downloads  Sample_MilkrunKanbanSystem_TD : Sample_MilkrunKanbanSystem_TD.fsm This is an example on how to model a kanban system with a milk train system. There are four different item types in stock and if they reach a limit new items getting ordered and produced. Via a milk train these items getting transported into the stock. The items are on pallets and one of the questions to answer is how many pallets are in the system. Other questions are how often the milk train should run. The main idea for the milk train is that all pallets for a run are collected in one queue. In this queue the pallets are sorted by item type, which is the order of the stations for the milk t ...

Downloads  Sample_SupplyChainManagement_RG : This is an example for a Supply Chain Management Simulation model. Like most SCM models the items are used to have events which update information. The stock e.g. is a label (information) and will be updated through different events. The model shows how many tags are in the system and where they are in the system. They are in different stocks, getting produced or transported. The model is used to examine how many tags are needed in this system and shows when there are not enough tags in the chain. In the Global Table Parameters are all the parameters for the model, e.g. Release Time, Transport Time, etc. One time unit in the sim ... [more] (113.1 KB) 03-26-2009 2815 2
Downloads  Sample_BasicConveyor : An example of using a BasicConveyor to implement a "pick window" in which to pick an item off a conveyor. Basically, it releases the item at a certain decision point and then at the next decision point, it holds the item if it hasn't requested a transport yet. That way the transport can only pull items off in a certain window. The decision points are representative not of the entire window, but of the window at which the transport begins to go get the item. The quirks with the model are that it will only work if sending to an object that will only receive one item at a time (such as another conveyor or a queue or processor with ...

Downloads  Sample_VirtualRacks_TD : This model is an example how to build a virtual storage with a number of racks. A virtual storage/rack has no items/pallets in it just the information/data for the items are stored. If in a rack cell is some content an orange cube is drawn to visualize that there is content but there is no item. If an item is needed for transport (take items out of the rack) the item is created and a tasksequence for the transporter. In this example the data for the racks are not stored in Global Tables but directly in the tree (node /Tools/VirtualRacksData) like a Global Table. The difference is that the tree can hold multiple data for one cell w ... [more] (79.9 KB) 01-05-2009 2255 0

Pick-Items arrive in the SourcePick and put randomly into the queues (QueueOut). There an order is generated to pick this items. An Operator travels through the network and checks, if there are items he has to pick depending on his order list. After he checked at all modules he unloads all the items at the Sink. Place-Items arrive at the Source Place and put into the QueuePlace. An Operator gets these items and places them in the queue (QueueIn) in the related Modules. ... [more] (77.7 KB) 12-15-2008 2290 0
Downloads  Sample_GlobalTableArrivalSchedule_TD : This model is an example how to control a Source depending on a Global Table. The Global Table (ArrivalSchedule) holds the information for Arrival Time, ItemName, ItemType, Quantity and ItemSize. Depending on this information a number of items (Quantity) arrive at the ArrivalTime in the system, ItemType, Name and Size are set. The main code is on the Source in OnReset, OnMessage and OnExit. The Source also has two labels. One remark about the Arrival Time is that as shown in the Output Console the Arrival Time is not exactly e.g. 5.0000 for the first three arriving items but 5.0000, 5.0001, 5.0002. The reason is to prevent str ... [more] (33.3 KB) 12-03-2008 2379 0
