Conveyors

Conveyors control how entities flow from activity to activity. Introducing Stations in a conveyor enhances the ability to control flow from conveyor to conveyor.

  • Control speed of conveyors
  • Control distance of conveyors
  • Control orientation of entities
  • Control accumulation of entities

Process Simulator Professional Material Handling

Path networks

Resource movement can be added to enhance your model with travel, pick up, and deposit time.

Process Simulator Professional Material Handling

Nodes - decisions points of a path network

  • Set limits
  • Flexible connectors - allow for travel of resources to any part of your Visio file where the resource is requested.

Path Network Connector - connections between nodes

Distance is automatically configured by the scale or the model, but can be manually set.

Process Simulator Professional Material Handling

Interfaces - connections from nodes to activities or stations

This is how you can control where resources go to interact with an activity/station.

Resource Path network section

Choose the path network the resource can move on.

  • Control starting, off-shift, and break node
  • Speed
  • Deposit times
  • Node logic for better control of resources
