Hello to everyone,
I ran into a problem when trying to make a model of 3 different manufacturing processes on same product that come one after another. The thing is that I used servers, and every one of them is sequentially operated by one person. That means my Server 1 cant start with operation until Server 3 is finished. If i recall correctly from school, the best way is to use opening and closing channels, so on Server 1 "trigger on entry" i put "CloseInput (c)" and that works fine, when product enters server it closes his input channels. But now I have a problem with opening the input channel of Server 1 with trigger on exit on Server 3. It simply wont work, so I would kindly ask for any help. To conclude, is there i way one atom (in my example, Server 3) can open input channel of another atom (Server 1)? If not, is there any way I can tell my Server 1 not to take any product from queue until Server 3 is finished with his cycle.
Thank you in advance and best regards
