Default Use of Global TaskSequence with Combiner


I'm trying to use global tasksequence with combiner. I've modified the training material model A3, which illustrates global tasksequence with Processor, and what I have done is replace the first processor with a combiner and update the Send-to-Port similarly as done in the processor. However, it is observed that the combiner after sending out the first flowitem out, it will be remained in a state kind of like "close input port". It is also observed that the OnExit Trigger is never called in this state.

Please advise on what changes need to be made on it.

Attached is the modified model done in Flexsim 7.5.

In your Global Task Sequence the input/output ports in the tasks FRLOAD and FRUNLOAD, are set as 0. When you use 0 the objects to do not recognize the enter and exit of an entity. This is why the main Source was in state "blocked".
Your model with this correction is attached, look the Global Task Sequence and compare to your's original model.
