Build factory process models with the Block Diagram tool. Place and connect sources, processors, and buffers to form a workcell or assembly line.
You can then update the properties for each object to define their behaviors, such as process time, setup time, scheduling, capacity, output rate, and more.
Provide visual context to factory process models—show where the model will be built or where the equipment is currently located.
Once you create a process model, simply press Play to run it.
While running, the model shows how materials move between the objects, shows setup and processing time for processors, and indicates when buffers are under or over capacity. You can also change any object property while the model is running to see how it affects behaviors (this does not require a restart).
Detect bottlenecks and capacity thresholds while the process model is running.
Find and evaluate potential problems—bottleneck protection highlights where design modifications may be needed. Simulate unplanned downtime and maintenance by turning off any object to see how the model is affected.
View the results of a process model simulation as a detailed report, then share it with others who don’t have Process Analysis 360.
Reports show how much product was produced, the production time required, and the amount of resources used. You can use reports to help redesign your processes and to help ensure projects meet their objectives.
To use Process Analysis 360, simply log in with your A360 credentials. All your projects are stored in your A360 account.
You can share Process Analysis 360 projects with others using A360 capabilities. The application checks for updates when it is launched and keeps projects current.
