・Product list and panel.
Select products from the list of products to register on production line balance analysis.
・Production process workload chart panel.
You can see workload chart regarding to the product you selected. You selected(not check box, click the name of product) from production selection panel will be displayed. Vertical line means work time and work elements are placed in horizontal.
If move cursorpf your mouse over the cell as work element on production process workload chart panel, the work element on production process pane will be highlighted. Also, name of work element and work time are displayed near the cursor.
・Floor plan workload chart panel
Workload chart associated with station is displayed.On this chart, products that are checked on product lists are displayed. If you select several products, work time cell of each products are shown piled up as a percentage. On the other hand, if you select one, vertical axis shows time. Horizontal axis shows station on floor plan.
Cell of same color in workload chart shows same product.Also, color of work time cell on the workload chart and product name on product selection panel are displayed same color. If you move the cursor over the workload chart of floor plan, the station and work time are highlighted on floor plan pane. Products name, staton name, work element name , and rate of work time are displayed near the cursor.
There is an example about floor plan workload chart.Each axis of workload chart shows as noted below.
・Horizontal axis: station
・Vertical axis: percentage of summation of ( work time× production quantity)
Product A: production quantity(10)
Product B: production quantity(20)
・Work elements of productionA :2
Work time of work element A-1:30(sec)
Work time of work element A-2:40(sec)
・Work elements of production.
Work time of work element B-1:20(sec)
Work time of work element B-2:10(sec)
・Floor plan:2 stiation
Station 1 has work element A-1 and work element B-1
Station 2 has work element A-2 and work element B-2
Work time of each station
Work time of station1=30×10+20×20=700
Work time of station2=40×10+10×20=600
Therefore,a percentage of stations on the floor plan is
A percentage of work time of station1=700/700×100=100
A percentage of work time of station2=600/700×100=85.7
On production line balance analysis,percentage of this calculating formulai is displayed as a vertical axis.
When you don’t set anything for behavior, activity selects the one to be equal for responsible stations in terms of the rate of operation.
Station activity takes the station having maximum value which is followed as below.
（current quantity in stock） × ｛（work time） ÷ （number of input parts of work element）｝
=（current quantity in stock） × （processing time of each product）
In other words, changed station behavior specification to select the station having maximum time to execute all of stock.As a result,finishing time of work of each station will be leveling.
