Operator return before finish all process steps.

Operator Pick.fsmHI, i have a production line that need help with the transporter operator. The complete process is: Assembly the item in OP10, and then take the other items from PICK 1, PICK2 and PICK 3, send to OP20 and finally send to PACK. All the process needs to be done by the same Operator 1, one by one. The issue is when Operator transport the item from OP20 to Pick 1 and return to OP20 instead to go to PICK 2 (same in PICK2, PICK3 and OP20). How to avoid return to previous process until the item is in pack area. The operator1 needs to finish all until return to first step. Thanks.

Hi @Iram A2,

I was able to incorporate your desired logic. I added On Exit triggers to Queue1 and Queue2 to close their inputs after objects exit to OP10, so this prevents more items from going to OP10 and causing the operator to come back.

Then, I added center port connections from the Pack queue to Queue1 and Queue2 and added an On Entry trigger to the Pack queue to reopen the inputs on Queue1 and Queue2 when the operator unloads the tote into the Pack queue.

Everything seems to be working well, so I hope this is helpful! Let us know if you have further questions!
