Stationary and Moving Parts
The Workplace Planner can model both stationary layouts and workplaces where parts are moving on a conveyor or moving line.
Stationary Part Analysis
As in most cell production, this analysis calculates walking with a part and stopping at stations to perform work. A walk speed can be set for both loaded and unloaded walking. Additionally, users can define walk paths to better evaluate real times where operators may walk around tables and avoid safety hazards within the cell.
Moving Part Analysis
The moving part capability helps you quickly compute and diagram operators walking to and from moving parts on straight or multi-segmented paths. A built-in animation feature allows you to see operators moving in the workplace and performing tasks at locations. This quick-animation feature greatly improves the evaluation, understanding and communication of the workstation-based process for managers and line personnel.
