For the new process via Cockpit Pre-Assembly, you have already created the default grouping chain. Now the specific shopping cart must be created and defined.
Switch to the "Grouping chain editor" via the module bar.
You can read about the structure of the submodule here.
In our model, you should see the two default grouping chains in the top table. For the "Supermarket_Linefeed" two grouping chains are already created and planned out. (Seat Belt Carset 1 and 2).
Your task now is to create a suitable grouping chain for the default grouping chain "Pre-Assembly_Linefeed". First select the correct default grouping chain in the top table.
On the system side, a BasicGroupingChain is automatically created, which is to be regarded as a worklist. All parts that you have assigned to the corresponding default supply chain/default grouping chain via the decision tree are assigned here. In this middle table you can now create a grouping chain and then reassign the parts.
Tip: Work with multiselect when assigning parts to a grouping chain. You can select an area of any size using the "Shift" key or by holding down "Ctrl" and then clicking the left mouse button.
After the assignment has been made and you find your grouping chain everywhere in the first column of the lowest table, you can now further define the grouping chain in the middle area. On the one hand, a grouping chain container with the number of compartments can be selected, on the other hand, a grouping chain rack with the information about the number of grouping chain containers per grouping chain rack.
In addition, a calculation logic can be set. An explanation can be found here.
The container catalog includes the type "1211-SLT", which is to be used as a grouping chain container. This container has space for 9 cockpit modules for corresponding 9 vehicles.
According to the default grouping chain, only the grouping chain container is used. The grouping chain rack is not used, so simply set the bins per rack to "1" and also select the "1211-SLT".
Of course, the cockpit module consists of several individual parts from the logistics quantity framework. Thus it must be set for the calculation logic that also several parts may be placed in one compartment.
The remaining values can remain unchanged.
With this, you have successfully created a shopping cart and can now move on to detailed planning in the supply chains.
Save your progress.
