Operator Routing Question

Hello all!


I just have a quick question regarding the routing my operator takes. I want them to finish going through all the processors but whenever a new item is in the queue from the source they stop at the last station and go to the new item. I just want to know what logic I should add to have them finish processing each item and then they can go back and start a new one. Thank you all!


I'm attaching my model here. Let me know if I can clarify any questions.

I've attached a model that performs the function you've described.

I created a simple process flow that acquires the Technician, then manually delivers the item from the first queue to the Quality station. Then it waits for the item to arrive in Queue9 before allowing the Technician resource to be released. The technician will do whatever tasks you assign him in between, but until an item arrives in the final queue, he won't bring a new item to the Quality station.

Hopefully that answers your question!

Thank you so much Johan! My model is working how I desired it too. The process flow logic is easy to understand too which will help me incorporate it into future models. I appreciate you!
