Buffer with multiple products


In a process, I store multiple products of different types in 1 large shelf buffer.
The next process consumes products from the buffer. depending on the product it is making, it needs a specific type of product. But if it was not the first or last product inserted in the buffer, the process seems to be waiting for the product, although it is available in the buffer.
Can someone help/explain me how to use the buffer with multiple producttypes and a ‘random’ product request?

Increase the maximum parallel outgoing products (it is a property of the Buffer statement) in the buffer to the capacity of the buffer. This should allow the products to be accessed in random order, but the transport out from the buffer may become the next bottleneck with a queue of “transport requests” being fullfilled in certain order.
