rouoting out control of a queue

rouoting out control of a queue

Postby leon_yangliang » Wed Nov 14, 2018 1:24 pm

hi there,
i wanna ask how can i control the routing out of a queue as the queue is connected with 3 following activities. And i wanna let the work items in the queue only enter the activitiy that is already loaded with another type of work item in order to complete the assembly work of two different types of work items in that activity.

Hi,

If the activity should only start work once it is already loaded with another type of work item, you probably need to use the Routing In > Collect feature (https://www.simul8.com/support/help/dok ... es:collect). Then, the activities will pull a work item from the queue only if they also have a work item from another queue.

Also note that queues are passive, that means if you want them to actively route work items out, you need to put a dummy activity (of fixed time 0) behind them and use their Routing Out.

Hope this helps.
