Default Decrease waiting time for taskexecuter

Hi all,

I'm trying to solve a problem relating to the trigger to start a tasksequence for a taskexecuter/AGV. Due to the long distance between source and sink, I want my taskexecuter to start traveling at the same time the source starts the creation of an item.
Actually I'm working with the unload trigger, so that the taskexecuter travels to the home location (the source) when there's no new tasksequence available.
Is there an other possibility to implement this?

Thank you in anticipation!

Have you looked at the OnResourceAvailable trigger? That goes off when a taskexecuter is ready with it's task.

Hello Johanna,
you can dispatch another tasksequence after a standard is dispatched. In the OnReceiveTasksequence-trigger you can create and dispatch this tasksequence with a lower priority than the actually receiving tasksequence. You only have to check if the receiving tasksequence is of the type to go home or a standard transport tasksequence. For example you can test the number tasks within the tasksequence, to identify the incoming tasksequence.
Another approach could be to insert the travel-home-task to the incoming tasksequence in the taskexecuter. You have the reference to the received task in the OnReceiveTasksequence-trigger. With this pointer you inserts the to-go-home task.

If you increase the tasks of a standard transport task, some templates won't work anymore without adjusting them, because the number of tasks is evaluated. A standard transport task consists of 5 tasks. If you insert another task then the transport tasksequence has got 6 tasks.

Jörg
