Default single source logic

Dear friends,

My work includes simulation study of 0ne section of machines which will give product "x". At the same time, remaining section/groups of machines are also running to give other products "y", "z" and so on.. All these groups get the raw material from a single source.. (Single stores providing material to all the groups) How shall i give the logic in my model so that it will show the simulation of the group I am studying at the same time it will show the working of other groups of machines?

thanks in advance.

Hyderabad, India

Use the number of product for Itemtype of your items and give them direction with the "send to" logic of the source. This way you can send material by it´s itemtype to different ports.
