How to pull pallets off multiple dollies to queue pulled by a task executor?

forumq1.png

Please see the model I roughly set up. I would like to have the task executor pick up a set of 6 dollies somewhere on the track, each dolly would contain a pallet. I would then like the pallets to move off of each dolly to the queue one by one. The pallets are then carried off a conveyor but that is irrelevant to the question. Any advice or example models would be helpful. Thanks!

I'm currently trying to work an example out for you, but before the weekend I just wanted to give you an update. This actually is much trickier than it appears on the surface.

I've created an example that shows how you might get "dollies" to load pallets, load themselves onto an AGV then get unloaded, and then unload their own pallets at the destination queue. Basically you'll use lists and Process Flow to control the logic by pushing the Dollies onto lists, and then pulling them from lists to grab the pallets, and also to load themselves on and off the AGV. Feel free to take a look at what I've come up with so far dolliesload2-autosave.fsm

@Ben Walker I believe that Sam mistakenly attached a slightly previous version of this model, just to let you know. His most recent model should be very helpful to you once he has the chance to post it.

Sorry about the mixup on the files. I've actually created the full complete example it will do everything as stated above, but will also push the dollies back on the list and have the AGV send them back to collect more pallets. I'm attaching the updates (and correct) model below. dolliesload3.fsm
