Default simple question for operators

Hi, everyone

I may be a simple question. What I want to do is that I have 2 processors connected each other. Process time for processor 1 is 10 min and Pro2 is 20min. Processor 1 needs two operators for processing. However, operator have to wait for10 min to work until processor 2 is finished. It means that they have extra 10 min to do other task. So, I want them to move to a object, which is not connected to processor 1, load flowitem, unload to the object, and work if processor 1 can be worked. It mean processor2 is finished.

Could you please let me know how to do for the sequences?
What I think is that I will use coordinatetasksequence but I do not know how to set code like if the flowitem is not going to next station, operators should go to the object location and come back to processor1 and work again if the flowitem is gone.


I will appreciate your help~!
If you have a example, I will be happy.

Thanks

Default

Kang,

If you simply use the default ways of using operators for the process time they will do what you are asking for. Meaning that they will work on Processor 1 until it is finished and then leave to do other things until a new flowitem enters into Processor 1. If Processor1 is connected directly to Processor2 then this will happen when Processor 2 finished its process and the flowitem in 1 can then enter 2.

If you were wanting the process at Processor1 to not start until Processor 2 was halfway done (so that they will finish at the same time) then you could call stopobject() on Processor1 in the OnEntry or SetupFinish then after you call stopobject() (This is a very important distinction as opposed to doing it before) you can send a delayed message for half of the Processor2 time to call resumeobject(). Doing it this way would allow you to use the same default operator settings as above.

Good Luck,
Brandon
