Default AGV: wait for work

Hello,

could someone please tell me how to configure the "wait for work" logic correctly for my AGV stations? In the model attached I am trying to do the following:

At Station 1 and 4 I want the AGVs to stop and queue at the station until there is a load to pickup. When I define Waypoints WaitingAtLoading with "Wait for Work" logic: the vehicles stop, but the source does not release any more loads and getting stuck in "waiting for transporter" state. My dispatcher giving it to the closest AGV available, which I suppose would be the one waiting there...

Any suggestions, what I am missing here?

Thanks a lot,
Kat

Katharina,
I just posted a new template model and user library that implements basic AGV control through process flow here. My suggestion is to rebuild your model using this new method. You wouldn't need to rebuild the paths or objects, but you would need to remove your old way point logic, and then do the to-do tasks mentioned in the process flow's documentation, and make the proper control point connections.
Regards,
Anthony Johnson

Thanks a lot Anthony, its okay I haven't worked with Process Flow yet, except the tutorials, but at least gives me the great opportunity to dive straight into it! As my project is pretty large, I also felt the way point logic to be a bit fragmented. I will check it out and get back to you, if I have any further questions.
Warm regards, Katharina
