Overview and Key Concepts
Transfers are not available in the FlexSim Library. Rather, they are created whenever a conveyor is connected to another conveyor.
There are three kinds of transfers:
- Transfers - Connections from one conveyor to another. They can affect how an item is transferred between conveyors.
- Entry Transfers - Connections from a non-conveyor object (such as a Source or other Fixed Resource) to a conveyor object. They can affect how an item is transferred to a conveyor. See Entry Transfers for more information.
- Exits Transfers - Connections from a conveyor to a non-conveyor object (such as a Sink or other Fixed Resource) to a conveyor object. Exit Transfers have the ability to send for a transport, or in other words, a Task Executer to pick up items and deliver them to another object. Task Executers can pick up items from a particular point on the Exit Transfer or a range of possible points along an Exit Transfer. See Exit Transfers for more information.
