I am having difficulties find the solution to this modelling problem. The problem is the following:
I have products with different lenghts and i want to pack them on pallets in order to stack them in time 0 in racks. I have some data:
- number of items for the initial stock in excel table with the respective Length
- Maximum number of items i can stock in a pallet depending on its length
I also have this constraints:
- the pallet can stock only the items with the same length (one pallet has to stock homogeneous length)
- Depending on their length the maximum quantity of items is fixed
I created a process flow with two separate sources: one for the FlowItems and one for the pallets. In the FlowItems source i imported an excel table with the deterministic quantities of products and the associated labels such as: Length, ArticleCode, Itemtype and itemsPerPallet. Instead in the Pallets Source i created an arrival schedule with fixed amount of pallets (calculated in excel in order to stack each product).
After doing this i created a process flow for palletization in order to retrieve the first item from the FlowItem list then after this retrieve the rest of the items (ExtraItems) according to the quantity: ItemsPerPallet -1 where ItemType = token.FirstItem.ItemType. Then put those items on a pallet.
Something does not work and it is throwing me errors in the system console.
Can somebody help me to solve this problem?
