Checklist: check walkways & assembly processes!
Optimized processes in assembly are becoming increasingly important. The routes taken by assembly workers play an important factor. Are you aware of how much optimization potential for your company lies in the routes taken by assembly workers alone?
Our checklist will give you an initial overview of the situation on your site:
The next step: digitalization of your assembly processes
Your production can only function efficiently if the assembly employees know their specific assignments. However, as products become more and more complex, optimal planning of employee routes is almost impossible to master without digital help. With Excel, limits are quickly reached.
With ipolog software, you can easily and effectively plan walkways and production operations and view what you have planned in 3D.
ipolog helps you reduce the planning time of processes in manufacturing, assembly or logistics. At the push of a button you can simulate assembly processes and immediately see where walkways are complicated or illogical. You can quickly and easily try out and compare different walkways, material staging concepts and rack assignments.
Does your assembly need to be comprehensively optimized? In our webinar,
"Optimize Your Assembly: From Idea to Reality in 5 Steps"
we demonstrate how you can get the most out of your assembly line with software support.
Why are shorter walking distances so important?
Not enough time
The assembly workers don't have a moment to waste - every second counts.
Not enough space
Space is money! Every meter must be utilized for the required material supply.
Lack of overview during assembly planning
Your current planning does not show how much time the assembly workers have to spend on which step. An evaluation and visualization is not possible.
Enough is enough!
With our ipolog software, we provide you with an effective tool which can master the challenges of walkway optimization.
Our ipolog planning and management software enables ideal process planning: walkways, material areas, cycles, spatial data (such as columns, stairs, ventilation pipes) - everything is linked in one plan. You know exactly at which cycle what is to be installed and your employees are perfectly synchronized. Learn more about the topic assembly planning.
Industrial Rack Planning: ipolog enables you to visualize the resources to be placed on material areas. In addition, you can see the exact arrangement and positioning of part numbers in the specified container in our user-friendly, visual representation. Staging concepts such as sequences, carset or carts can also be mapped. To ensure the shortest possible walking distances for assembly workers, material supply must be designed in a meaningful way. ipolog supports you in avoiding non-value-adding "walks" to retrieve material.
