Hello! For my master thesis I have to do a warehouse simulation. Since I am a beginner in FlexSim and my problem is quite complicated, I have a few questions and hope that someone can help me:
I have an order list with data like order number, quantities item type etc.. In total i have have 3 different Products (Type 1, 2, 3). When a product arrives at the receiving warehouse (floor storage) the dispatcher has to combine the products by order number (either in the floor storage) or in the rack storage, depending on the arrival time of the products. Only one order per slot can be stored in the rack. Every hour, the dispatcher starts the outsourcing process (from the rack to the outgoing warehouse, floor storage). After picking, the dispatcher starts again with the storage. (This process is repeated). Can anyone help me to develop this simulation model? I have already designed a model, but I do not know how to integrate global tables into the system. Currently, the dispatcher takes statistically selected products and stores them? Attached I upload the current model Entwurf_2.fsm
Thank you very much!!

Here is a small sample model where an operator picks items from a rack based on SKU and Quantity information read from a Global Table. (model was saved in 20.2.2).
