Default Robot picking Multiple objects

Hi Friends,
I have attached a model in which Robot cycle time is taken as 5sec (given in move time) and pick capacity is given as 4. Robot picks 4 items and takes 5 sec to pick each item but what required is robot has to pick & place 4 items at same time.Thanks in advance.

Model Version: Flexsim 6.0

mgiubilato will become famous soon enough

Here attached you find the changed Flexsim 7.0 model with the capability to pick and place all the 4 items at the same time, with a overall pick time of 5 secs and another 5 secs in placing all 4 items.

I did 2 changes :
- on upstream queue i used batching (with a batch size of 4, matching the robot ability on carrying 4 items)
- on robot' s move trigger i made a small changes in the flexscript logic :

double value = 5;
if ( content(current) == 0 || content(current) == getvarnum(current,"maxcontent") ) return value;
return 0;

In this way only one pick and one place tasksequences will last 5 secs.

I hope it is clear.
