This tutorial will walk you through the different tools and approaches to creating tasks for task executers. You'll learn several different approaches and the advantages or disadvantages of each method. For example, you'll learn how to create tasks using standard 3D logic and process flows that use resources and lists.
This tutorial will cover the following tasks:
In this tutorial task, you'll learn how to build tasks using the standard logic that is available on 3D objects. Many of the 3D fixed resources have properties and basic logic that can be used to assign simple tasks to task executers, such as basic loading and unloading tasks or requiring an operator to be present during processing time. This tutorial will teach you how to create the logic for these simple tasks.
In this tutorial task, you'll get a comprehensive introduction to building tasks using resources in a process flow. You'll learn some of the advantages and disadvantages of using resources to create task logic, including the ability to customize tasks and easily add additional task executers.
In this task, you'll learn how to build tasks using lists in a process flow. Lists share some similarities to resources, but they have the added advantage of allowing you to sort or prioritize tasks using your own custom criteria. This tutorial will also include a discussion of the pros and cons of building tasks with lists.
In this task, you'll learn about a different system for building tasks that uses global lists and task sequences. In this system, you'll pre-build a task sequence for each flow item that needs to be transported and push those task sequences to a global list. Operators will then pull tasks from the task sequence list. As with the previous tutorial, you'll learn about the disadvantages and advantages of this method.
