Default Task sequences problem

Hi, I am a newbie in Flexsim and have using Flexsim.v6

My problem is in task sequences.
For example, I want a Operator to travel to a queue, load an item, then unload the item into TaskExecuter, and stay at the queue. In meanwhile, the loaded TaskExecuter travel to a Processor, unload the item, then I want TaskExecuter travel to Operator for loading next item.

I have attached my example model related to this question. I rote some code in queue>flow>use transport , but it does not work properly at all.

Thanks for your help

Your requirement is not pure tasksequence. It is coordinated tasksequencing where two TEs need to work together. There are two examples in the picklists for choosing the operator port that you can learn about coordinated tasksequence. In addition, there are some description about CTS in the manual too.

Take a look again and do some reading on that first.
