Combine the combined workpieces according to the specified quantity.

I have multiple combiners. What I want to achieve is that the first 20 combined workpieces will be combined into a new workpiece and sent to Queue:Products to be inspected, waiting to be sent to processor:inspection machine for quality inspection, It will be scrapped.

At the same time, the combiner will continue to combine the remaining workpieces into a new workpieces and put it in Queue:Products to be inspected.

What I want to ask is, how can I recombine the combined artifacts according to the specified number to form a new artifact? At present, what I think of is to use trigger or process flow and then use conditional judgment and other methods.

Sorry, I'm still a novice, so I don't know how to use this software yet!

Thank you in advance for your help!!

Thank you very much.

Hi @lee,

It looks like this question may be part of a homework assignment or academic project. The professors who assign simulation modeling exercises using FlexSim expect that the academic integrity of their assignments will be maintained. In addition, we are supportive of Honor Codes or Pledges that regulate the behavior surrounding academic assignments.

I recommend reading our best practices page on the subject, which includes some resources that you should find helpful as you use FlexSim for academic purposes. I also highly recommend Dr. Allen Greenwood's FlexSim Primer, which was written specifically for students and professors.

I'm not sure if this answers your question , but the attachment below is how I do it , I try to fit the original file name and design。

Suppose you want to merge 20 raw materials into one composite, you need to set two inputs for Combiner1, and set the join mode, and set to receive 20 components from the second input (raw material) as a merge ,and then the merge is completed The objects will be moved down to the inspection machine for subsequent steps。* The quantity ratio between raw material and composite is set by time *

Sorry, there are some problems with the grammar above, I can only communicate through translation, I hope this example can solve your problem。
