How to model and correctly simulate assembly process
I would like to simulate a simple assembly and simulate how it would perform under different conditions. My scenario is very simple - I have to print a product, which is composed of two different prints. It is required that the two prints are printed on 2 different printers because of their characteristics e.g. different size, paper quality, etc.
The printing runs in parallel with a small delay between the execution of print 1 and print 2, because it is only one operator that triggers printing.
When both prints complete, the operator assembles the package and finalizes the product.
The question is as follows - if you trigger production of 100 units, you print in parallel 100 of each type, you will have 200 pieces altoghether, however when assembled it is still 100 end products, not 200.
When running simulation however, it turns out that you've produced 200 instead of 100 products, which is wrong.
I've used inclusive gateways, parallel gateways to combine both prints into one - does not help.
I have tried to set up "start quantity" and "Completion quatntity" on a task in order to input 2 and output 1 token, still does not work.
How can I resolve the issue?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
