Hi!

I am doing Process Flow as file attached below by implying with 3D Model.I want to set that "If there aren't enough Tractors ,Queue pauses getting tokens from Harvester ,or Harvester pauses sending tokens". I would like to know how to set to get logic as I want .

Can anyone help me?

Thanks.

Can you give a better description of the correlation between the 2 models? It is hard to know what is supposed to represent harvesters and other details in your process flow model, especailly in one model you are using several transporters and in your process flow model I only see 1 transporter.

@Joshua S, Thanks You. Process Flow model I did just like example of my process I want . The logic I want is like in 3D model model-3d.fsm .I’ve tried to simulate it in Process Flow but I really don’t know that logic is right or wrong .You can suggest me another way to create the Process Flow or solve the one I did.Here is my process Source produces 9000 tons (boxes instead) only once.Source as sugarcane plant .There is 5 trailer truck follows harvester simultaneously by getting sugarcane 5 tones per time.After that trailer truck bring to dump at truck,harvester pause If there is not available truck .when truck receives 20 tones,then forward it to factory.

I'm confused by the different trucks. So from your model, there are 5 tractors following the harvester, each has the capacity of 5 tons. after 1 tractor fills up with 5 tons, it goes and dumps its load into a truck, which after it has 20 tons, goes and dumps its load at the factory. is this correct?

@Joshua S, Yes It's . I would like to thank you so much .In case I want to add more truckVehicle I added quantity in Resource but I dont get logic I want ,so What should I do?

Thanks!

I made some changes so you can add as many truckVehicles as you want. I put the main truck in a group so the event triggered source will fire for each one that is created from added more in the resource activity. Then I restructured it so it will always fill one of the trucks at a time.17252-model-3d-1-1.fsm

@Joshua S Thanks a lot .For similar question ,when I add or subtract the tractors the logic I want is lost .In my project I need to determine the number of Tractors and vehicleTrucks to get maximum efficiency and reduce waiting time of harvester in Sugarcane harvesting . I really appreciate for your helping.

Thanks.
