Multi-activity Resource: Var. Cont. Consumption and Var. Duration?

Hi everybody,

I need to model the situation below:

The machine A is capable to process 10 m3 of the product P at once. A processing lasts 30 min regardless of the load of the machine.

For example, an order for 35 m3 of the product is to be executed. So, the machine is started 4 times (4th load is 5 m3) and processing time equals to 2 hours (30 min * 4).

If there is another order, for example, an order for 5 m3, then the two orders should be combined, that is, the 4th load must be full (residual 5 m3 of the order 1 + 5 m3 of the order 2).

I can't figure out a proper way to define consumption values in PPM. It's not possible to define both, duration and cont. consumption, as variable values.

Has someone any ideas?

Best regards,
