Station Type Settings   

Station Types contain global settings that you can import to any Station. This section will explain the settings that you can customize when you create or edit Station Types using the Conveyor System tool.

Before reading this section, you should be familiar with the purpose and basic functionality of the Conveyor System tool. See the following sections for more information:

The following image shows the various settings available in the Station Type Properties dialog box:

  • Item Edge The item edge that will trigger station processing.
  • Color The color that stations of this type will be drawn with.
  • Process Condition Returns a value, 1 or 0, defining the condition by which a given item passing over the station should be processed. Return 1 to process the item. Return 0 to let the item pass without processing it.
  • Process Time Defines the processing time for a given item at the station.
  • Use Operator Defines settings for calling an operator to the station to process the item. Check the box and then define the reference to the operator or dispatcher to give the task to, as well as the # of Operators to request, and the Priority and Preemption values of the request task sequence.
  • On Arrival The trigger that will fire when the defined item edge arrives at the station.
  • On Continue The trigger that will fire when the defined item item edge continues through the station.
  • On Reset A trigger that fires when the simulation model is reset. This can be used to reset state variables such as labels, etc., when the model is reset.
  • On Message A trigger that fires when the station is sent a message.
