Outbound picking model with global table

Hello, Thank you for reading my question.
I am trying to make outbound picking process model which is based on global table.
I have 2 problems.
In my model, I am struggled in Order outbound in ProcessFlow

<Problem 1>
I made processFlow and my model doesn't follow Order data sequence from Global table.
My model is just picking item by FIFO. However, my order data is not like that.

Do I have to use "List" for solving this problem?

<Problem 2>
Also, I need to make my model working when My order data is all processed.
How can I repeat my processing until order data finished?

Thank you for reading my questions.

My version is 23.0.14


FlexSim 23.0.15

For the first problem, you don't need to use a list, but you have to implement a query in the find slot activity to find the item that match de SKU on the table (for the current row).

Then, you can use a label representing a counter for the current row, so, when the counter match the number of rows of the table you can stop the simulation.

Hello, Thank you for replying.

Could you explain little bit more about "Find Slot"?

I am also trying to use Find slot, but I am not good at using query.

Here is my Find slot setting and token properties below.

Actually, in the token properties, SlotAddress is wrong. I think it shows first of Rack slot,
but actually rack slot is different. Also, I think I need to make slot correct.

Can you check my model please?
Thank you very much.

I'm using a query to match the item SKU with the SKU on the token. Also, just for items which are placed in the rack (I paint a new slot label).

Also, I'm creating token per row in the table.

Hi, Thank you for helping. I was delightful to receive your answer.

I saw your model works perfectly. Also, I tried to check and attempted to edit my model. However, it didn't work and show this error message.

I think something is wrong in "Find Item" part, but I can't find any wrong.
In my opinion, Something wrong in Query, maybe "SKU_Name".
Is it correct?
