  • Go into Objects and Containment
    • Create two new objects:
      • 'Part1'
      • 'Part2'
    • Check Display Object Value
    • Select Define Object Dimensions and 3D Control
      • Change the color of each new object
  • Next go into Resources and Shifts
    • Create two new Resources and set Available Number:
      • 'Resource1' - 1
      • 'Resource2' - 1
      • Be sure to click Add after each entry
  • Use the Start Process tool to create 'Start
  • Use the Generic Process tool to create: 'Process1' and 'Process2'
  • Lastly use an End Process tool and create 'End'
  • Now use the Interprocess Connection tool and connect the model together
    • 'Start' to both 'Process1' and 'Process2'
    • Connect both of those to 'End'
  • Select 'Start'
    • Go into Define Object Creation Rules
      • Switch to Create Objects Based on Distribution and set the Distribution for each object:
        • 'Part1' - 50
        • 'Part2' - 50
    • Customize and switch to Process/Object/Condition Routing
      • Set the Default Routing to 'Process1'
      • Set 'Part2' to 'Process2'
  • Now select 'Process1'
    • Go into Process Timing Properties
      • Set Default Timing to a Min/Max of 5 Seconds
    • Customize and go into Resource Constraints
      • Set the Required Number for 'Resource1' to 1
    • Select the connection lines before and after 'Process2', right click and select Item Properties
      • Customize and go into Resource Constraints
        • Set the Required Number for 'Resource2' to 1
    • Switch to the Simulation tab
      • Click Start
    • As the model runs watch as the Resources work differently for each object.
