Routing an entity with the use of a resource (employee, machine, etc.).
- Create the routing connection where the resource will be used.
- Create the resource. (Be sure that the Object Type field in the properties dialog indicates Resource .)
- Connect the resource to the routing connection using the line tool.
Alternatively, you may use a GET statement in the Action logic of the routing connection and a FREE statement in the Action logic of the next activity. Connected resources will always be captured before resources specified in a GET statement. On the other hand, resource connections that free a resource occur after any Action logic for the routing or activity.
Example: Patients in a waiting room are escorted to a treatment room by a nurse.
TO DO: Connect the nurse (once created as above) to the appropriate routing.
