how to use more than 1 operator on one processor

I want to create a simulation that shows one process that uses 2 operators in the process. how do I get one process to be done by 2 operators at the same time?

Connect the processor to a dispatcher which itself connects to multiple operators. Then set how many operators are needed for the process on the processor.

Dispatchers are part of the first Task Logic Tutorial.

Hello I´ve tried this and It did not work at all. There is any other way I can assign two operators to the same processor?

You can create and dispatch custom task sequences to operators (complex and quite difficult) or use Process Flow to stop the processor when an item arrives and arrange for two operators to work it there (relatively straightforward if you have decent knowledge of Process Flow and task types).

Overall using a dispatcher connected to the centerport should be the easiest method to get this to work. Maybe post some information about what you tried/what didn't work, so we can try and figure out what went wrong.

I didn't see any processors that were set to use two operators. A couple have more than one connection, but in their properties are still set to only use one operator and always the one that is the first centerport connection.

The screenshot in my original answer shows how the processor should be set up:

- Check the "Use Operator" option and set the number next to it to two.
- Have a single centerport connection going to a dispatcher. This means all task sequences generated by the object will first be send to the dispatcher. It will then distribute them further to any operators connected to it with an A-connection (from dispatcher to operator).
