Default Need help in programmatically increase operators and decrease process time

Hello everyone,

I looking for an options to achieve below scenario:

Default : Operator(s) - 1 ; ProcessTime : 300
Case 1 : Operators - 2 ; ProcessTime : 150
Case 2 : Operators - 3 ; ProcessTime : 100

I'm trying to decrease the ProcessTime based on number of operators working on that process. Dose anyone have any idea how to achieve that.

Dear Ramu Jampani,

The attached is the sample model illustrating your requirement. However for doing this logic you don't have to write any code. I have just used the value by case option of process time in the processor, in which the case function becomes getvarnum(current,"nrofprocessoperators").The only thing you have to keep in mind is number of operators is a treenode variable, which you can check in the treenodes of the processor.

Furthermore, you can set different process times for different number of operators, as per your requirement.I hope this solution helps you if not ignore this post.
