Tutorial: How to use Flow Planner Tuggers

Flow Planner is purpose-built for analyzing the movement of people, equipment, and materials in warehouses, manufacturing environments, and other facilities. In this month's webinar, we discuss what Tuggers are and how they can be used on the assembly floor to best optimize routes based on delivery and pickup requirements.


What is an ANDON system? 

This video details how our Factboard Andon system works, top features, and how current clients are utilizing it. The Factboard Andon system is an extension of our Shop Floor Viewer (MES) system


Getting Started with Assembly Planner: Activity Variation by Option

In this video, we branch off our previous getting started video (below) now detailing how a variation within an activity focused on changing the images by option or part.


MUDA Analysis Time Studies Overview


3D Virtual Build Overview and How to Import CAD Files

Learn how to import your CAD files into 3D Virtual Build and get a general overview of how 3D Virtual Build works.


Getting Started with Assembly Planner (34:44)

Learn what the setup process is like from the initial download email to importing data.


Workplace Planner with Dave Sly (47:46)

Learn how Workplace Planner works by going through the background information about the software, then moving on to how it is used within CAD, and completing with an automotive example.


Pivot Grid with Dan Miner (22:52)

Proplanner’s Pivot Grid Module has powerful capabilities for searching across the process data library and generating user-defined pivot tables.


Flow Planner Tuggers with Dave Sly (32:19)

We’ll be reviewing the basic capabilities of how to use Flow Planner to diagram a quantify material flows in production and warehouse facilities. We’ll also be covering tips and tricks on how to quickly import data and evaluate several common types of materials handling scenarios.


3D Virtual Build with Todd Bodzislaw (47:44)

Todd plans to show a feature overview of how 3D models can aid in manufacturing process design.  I will explain the overall concept of a workspace that defines and ties pieces of the manufacturing process together, such as process attributes that include routings, operations, and activities to be performed, consumption of materials mapped to activities, the 3D representative model. 

After an overview of these concepts, Todd plans to demonstrate the key features of the 3D module (in relation to the above points) to further aid in process design.


Andon Integration with Abhishek Bandyopadhyay (24:40)

Abhishek plans to discuss ANDON Integration and how it allows for signaling, communicating, and resolving line down issues.


Ergonomics with Dave Sly (31:03)

Join Dave Sly as explains how our Ergonomics module within Assembly Planner works and how it may benefit you.

Line Balancing with Jaryd Rowley (40:40)

Using Assembly Planner to generate the most efficient assignment of tasks to operators and stations. Create, Compare, Manage, and Publish multiple scenarios for mixed-model production. Analyze, Visualize, and Report on actual production forecast orders or conceptual model/option mix scenarios.


MES with Dan Miner (50:39)

Proplanner’s MES solution addresses the major challenges of recipe management and mBOM / BOP coordination faced by manufacturers of high-mix low-volume products. Leveraging a unique and powerful process engineering system, Proplanner ensures that the correct parts, tools, and instructions are available to execute the build. Detailed as-built data capture and configurable rules engines are embedded in the system to reduce inadvertent releases and increase throughput.


Workbench Consumption with Jaryd Rowley (25:30)

Jaryd will be reviewing consumption within the assembly planner, and how to maintain accuracy in part consumption throughout the life of a product. How we treat sending changes through a workbench to streamline the process of updating Work Instructions and part picking locations.


Flow Planner and How it Works with Dave Sly (56:16)

We’ll be reviewing the basic capabilities of how to use Flow Planner to diagram a quantify material flows in production and warehouse facilities. We’ll also be covering tips and tricks on how to quickly import data and evaluate several common types of materials handling scenarios.
