control a variety of items into one group

I want to load two different items into one group.

However, the process flow does not work.

I'm looking for AGV at the loading point.For example,
I'd like to see Shuttle No. 1 go to Process 1 for unloading, and then move to Process 3 for loading.

This means that the AGV group automatically detects AGV at all load points.

I think we need a clearer description.

Do all AGVs need to take items from Processors1, 2 and 4 to Processor 3? If so then it's pretty simple - you could even just use standard task sequences and port connections (you don't have output ports at the moment - you're relying on the Process Flow to say where to go.

If AGVs are dedicated to the source Processors then you can push to a partitioned list and have the process of an AGV pull from the correct partition. There are many possible solutions, but without a clear description of what you want we're limited on how to help you.

I don't know what I'm asking when I see it again.

move on to the new modeling standard


As shown in the picture, I am currently controlling agv in two groups.(It doesn't matter because the upper side moves individually.)

There is an agv dedicated to Process 1 and an agv dedicated to Process 2, and I want to integrate it into one, not exclusively. test-model-v9.fsm

Is there a way to load items from two sources in one group?

It sounds like you want to model the process generically instead of listing the 5 sets of tasks each for each List.

I would define the process in data and then have a generic process for the AGVs to move the items to the correct resources for each item process type.

I can't see your .png image for the new modelling standard.
