»ipolog assembly planning software optimizes manual activities on the assembly line or at individual workstations by visualizing processes and »material supply directly in the factory layout. A »worker path simulation highlights where time is wasted by non-value-adding steps. This process provides added clarity for planners, decision-makers, management and staff alike.
Challenges in assembly planning
Customers are demanding more individualized products, which increases the number of variants while decreasing the batch size. Standardization is no longer the answer to achieving efficiency. Cost pressures and capacity bottlenecks are also restrictions that need to be addressed in the process of designing and planning the production line.
Assembly planning is a discipline of production planning which, based on the product profile, links the necessary processes and the materials to be used. The optimal use of necessary employees, tools and equipment are the core requirements of assembly planning
Core questions that companies must ask themselves in the context of assembly planning
How can we ensure a punctual production start?
How do we manage to train all employees before the production start?
How do we achieve maximum capacity utilization in order to withstand cost pressures?
How do we find solutions to space shortages?
How can we create more transparency than with previous Excel data solutions?

Three reasons to use ipolog assembly planning software
Visual Analysis Options
The visual analysis options in the 3D model provide immediate feedback concerning inefficiencies in existing systems and find planning errors faster than in Excel spreadsheets.
The unique interaction between processes and materials provides a multivalent and comprehensive optimization approach in assembly planning.
Holistic Assembly Approach
In line with the line-back approach, the optimized assembly provides the basis for also planning material flow and production supply in ipolog.
Ipolog is not only a simulation software, but also a calculation and reporting tool. As a result, all relevant KPIs can first be calculated, then visually checked for plausibility and finally compared transparently."
Follow these steps for successful assembly planning with ipolog
1. Importation of Layout
2. Preparation of 3D Resources
3. Summarization of Data
5. Cycle Simulation
Further benefits of using our ipolog assembly planning software
The possibilities for optimizing and successfully designing your production program are numerous. For example, you could go into great detail in material zone planning. ipolog allows you to change the conveyor position by drag & drop or to design the exact allocation of rack compartments in the course of »rack planning. Reach the next level in »resource planning. The result of your line balancing is the basis for »human resource planning with ipolog.
Based on the line-back principle, the exact starting point for your »material flow planning is already created with ipolog in assembly planning. Changes in »material supply planning have effects on logistics. With ipolog you can see the new requirements for your intralogistics and bring your production supply up-to-date at any time. See here how to use ipolog in logistics planning and how to supply your production with material via AGV, tugger trains and forklifts. »logistics planning with ipolog
