Model Object

The following model object can be found in the model objects directory: Lab \ AU5800 Chemistry System.

Ease of Use: Moderate

Ease of Modification: Moderate

How to Use the Model Object

1. Open Your Model

Open your model or create a new blank model.

2. Insert the Model Object into Your Model

1. Locate the model object AU5800 Chemistry System and select the insert button.

2. Move the cursor to the point of insertion and left mouse-click. The upper left corner of the model object will be inserted at the location of the mouse-click.

3. Connect to Your Model

1. Connect incoming and outgoing routes from your model to the model object.

This is one of the possible systems that could be interconnected on a automated track. This machine can be duplicated on the same sheet to create additional instances. All of the attributes and variables will be added as required.

Logic needs to be added to other parts of the track to control the selection of machines or next steps.

If a_Next_Loc = 1 Then the Stat or Routine entity will be slated for this machine

Detailed action logic in the spurs allow the control of when the lead entity is released to be loaded or to move to the next spur.

4. Completion

The model object is now integrated into your model, you should now be able to save and then simulate the model.

Attributes, Variables, Scenario Parameters and Scenarios Usage

Attributes:

1. a_Dir: Do not change. Used in conditional routes to allow the bypassing load and unload.

2. a_Next_Loc: Do not change. Defines which machine a sample is slated to go to next.

Variables:

1. v_AU_B1: Do not change. This variable tracks the qty between Spur1 and Middle spur.

2. v_AU_M1: Do not change. Tracks quantity between the beginning of the middle spur and the beginning of the out spur.

3. v_AU_E1: Do not change. Tracks the quantity between the end of middle spur and the beginning out spur.

4. v_AU_L1: Do not change. Identifies if a sample is available to be loaded.

5. v_Count: Do not change. Counts the number unloaded from the rack so the rack can be held until 10 are unloaded.
