Alternative Production Processes
« on: July 11, 2019, 19:00 »
I want to model several different process alternatives for a production process in one model. I have different machines, that produce the same product but differ for example in power usage. I want to assess what influence it has if one machine produces for example 0%, 50% or 100% of the demand and the other machine the rest. As there is another production process afterwards, I don't know the exact amount of output that is needed from the alternative processes.

The only solution for the model to calculate i have found so far, was to assign a manual flow to one machine alternative. The other machine would then be calculated automatically. However it is not possible to use percentages with manual flows.

Is there another way to do this?
