This tutorial will go over the use of assembly and disassembly to load and unload a container. To start the model we will create the Container and components using a work order, this can be set up to create as many parts as desired. Next we will use the same containers to unload and load at different destinations. Lastly is a straight forward assembly situation, where parts of a container will be joined together to complete the creation and assembly of a container. Assembly and disassembly is used widely throughout the Simcad simulation software; whether it’s bringing in parts from a cart, loading a tray for cleaning, or assembling something more complicated assembly and disassembly can serve many purposes.
The concepts in the model include:
- Using a work order to create containers
- Using the same container to load and unload
- How to create a container from components alone
