We continue at Station_18.
You received a suggestion from the assembly team about the tires provision.
Currently, they are unloaded on the assembly line and stored on the floor, which led to repeated damages in the past. To avoid this problem in the future, the tires should be delivered and placed on Euro pallets.
Therefore, adjust the tire provisioning in your ipolog model by reopening the Material Provisioning Editor.
Select the tires on both sides of the tape (material 10000045) in the 3D view or the Material Zone Editor. This will highlight them in the Material Provisioning Editor.
Tip: To select multiple materials, hold down the control button.
Under the tab Rack-Type in the Material Provisioning Editor, click on the "assign rack type" button. Then, choose the "EU_1" palette and assign it to the selected materials by clicking the "ok" button.
Once you have marked the tires in the 3D scene, you can assign the EU_1 pallet through the Rack tab in the Catalog.
Further course of the task independent of the alternative:
By assigning a shelf, the material is repositioned according to the ipolog WS queuing algorithm. Due to the width of the pallet, the space on the left side between the racks is no longer sufficient. It is decided to change to a narrower pallet with a width of 900mm to allow for the placement.
Open the Material Zone Editor and click on one of the tyres. Select the Edit button in the dropdown to edit this rack instance.
The Rack Instance Editor opens. This offers you the possibility of adapting individual racks quickly and easily directly in the scenario without having to create a new rack template that is played into the catalogue via the Common Racks. This instance then resides exclusively in your scenario and is not available in the Common Racks of other scenarios in this project.
Change the width to 900mm and confirm the change by clicking on the button "Update Rack Instance".
The tires have been repositioned and now fit neatly between the shelves. Next, remove the now-empty pallet from the Material Zone Editor and repeat the same steps for the tires on the other side.
Save your progress.
