I am trying to implement a buffer in my simulation.
I have the following stations:
- “rawpart cage” creator (works processes)
- buffer (works buffer)
- machine (works processes)
- “finishedpart cage” (works process)
I would like to move the “rawpart cage” to the buffer and then from the buffer to the machine.
Test 1: Using the interpolator to place the “rawpart cage” to the buffer and the agv to move to the machine.
Outcome: The agv picks the “rawpart cage” from the right direction.
Test 2: Using the agv to place the “rawpart cage” to the buffer and then moving the cage to the machine.
Outcome: The agv places the “rawpart cage” from the right direction but picks up the “rawpart cage” from the wrong direction (180° turned)
My question is: How can the agv pick up and place a part (“rawpart cage”) from the same direction?
I appended a test simulation. The feed taskname for the “rawpart cage” needs to be replaced to ‘agv’ in order to have the problematic scenario.

Thanks in advance for your help
