Placing items in different bays in a rack depending on the item type.

I have created a simulation based on a warehouse operation where different types of items are collected from a rack and grouped together on a single pallet of similar items. I am unable to find a logic to put this pallets in different bays based on the item type.

I have attached my model along with a screenshot of the rack that I want the differentiation to take place.

warehouse.fsm

@Samarth V

You should set or change two triggers like followed;

1) The palette container must the type attribute like box item type of 'ProductType'. So I set it in the exit trigger of the combiners. I set the palette type to the same box item type.

2) The rack has the feature about the logic to place the palette like followed;

22415-warehouse.fsm

Also I changed your setting in the Send to Port of Source1. The output port object is only one and so you need not send the items to another port.
