Proplanner’s recent edition now includes work step and MUDA classification fields to search the application. This search capability enables the user to navigate the entire application finding process data based on the defined parameter.
Related to the new MUDA classification parameters, the user can search the entire application (correlating facility) by MUDA Class Name, Category Name, or Detailed Name. A specific use case would involve the user evaluating total walk time associated to a plant, by line, specific to each station.
