exit transfer on conveyor not working?

b1.fsm

i'm not sure what i am doing wrong here. My expectation was that the objects would go to the processing station from the exit transfer, get processed and then routed back to the conveyor via the entry transfer.

Looks good! I like it. The only thing I would do is clean up the code in the DPs (see attached). Good job!

You just forgot to add decision points on your conveyor to decide where to send the flowitems. Attached is your model with the changes that I've made.

one more question Jeff, i want the decision point to send to any avaiable processor on the conveyor. how do i set the 'send to' in decision point to send object to any unused station and not let material pass through unprocessed.

please see file attachedb1-1.fsm

Attached is your model with the changes that I've made. Look at the model and see if this is what you had in mind.

The model will send a flowtiem to the top processor, if available. If not available, it will continue down the conveyor to the bottom processor. If that processor is available, it will go there. If it is not available, it will wait until it is available.

If this is not what you want, please give more details on how you would like it to work.

Attached is a model that may be even easier. Does this model do more of what you were wanting to do?
