Simulation of worker paths

The IPO.Worker simulation enables you to reduce worker paths to relieve workers and increase efficiency.

A worker may cover many kilometers of distance each day to get materials or tools to carry out their work. This is exhausting and means unproductively spent time.

 

Simulate your production processes by means of IPO.Worker-Simulation and effectively utilize your time.

 

The following added values arise:

Increase of productive times

These improvements in planning can be carried out within a very short time frame. The optimization monitor constantly informs you about financial savings. By means of the CAD interface, worker paths can be transferred into the CAD-layout, facilitating the review of worker paths with the employees on-site.

 

This function is unique worldwide!

You will see every step of your workers in 3D and in the real production environment. Worker paths as well as the movement of the production line and the individual process steps (assembly, retrieving material, etc.) will be visible.

You will immediately be able to see whether worker paths are useful or in need of improvement. What is the better alternative – changes in material positions causing an improved efficiency or maybe shifting a complete workstation? IPO.Log answers these questions by testing the different options via drag and drop. Every modification is visualized directly and the changed material conditions and worker paths are taken into account and displayed.

Every single modification in planning can be carried out directly in IPO.Log and all planning consequences are immediately displayed in 3D. Modify the CAD layout without using a CAD program, modify the order or duration of work processes without using Excel lists, modify the material order without adjusting the bills of material – all of this is done for you by IPO.Log. With IPO.Log your planning will become fast and efficient. You can simulate alternative scenarios and present your results to other planning partners.

The 3D visualization bridges difficulties in communication and lack of expertise of partners, making everything easy to understand. Worker training is also simplified by visual planning in the real environment.

Added values for manufacturing companies

Effective use of planning time

Decrease in production costs

No more comparison of lists

No more communication barriers

More capacity for planners

The results

In the reporting tool you can see the capacity of all of your workers across all stations. The allocation takes place within each individual worker and depending on the product variant. Non-profitable parts are easily identifiable.
