Worker Tasks / Assigments

Pioneer

Hi fellow communtiy members,

 

In my current project workers and their tasks/assigments have the most important role.

Tasks I would like to model are:

 

  • External Changeover (x Minutes prior or after to the actual changeover)
  • Statistical Process Control (every x Minutes parts need to be checked by one of the worker)
  • Tool Change (after x Parts or x minutes; this could be done with failures I guess)
  • Maintenance Tasks (clean area once a week, change part xy once a month)
  • Task xy (eg. every shift after x minutes, go to place A and process something for x minutes).. 

Do you have any ideas, suggestions or examples how to model these kind of tasks? They aren't necessarily triggered

by the production flow but by regular tasks during a workers shift.

 

Thanks a lot in advance!

For most of the works you can use virtual MUs, that you create and move to e.g. SingleProcs with active importers.

To trigger this creation you can use Generators or  observers.

  • External Changeover (x Minutes prior or after to the actual changeover)
    - trigger: observer for setUp (after); prior --> calculate the time of completion the lot (e.g. shiftCalendar.schedule)
    and call a method (see methCall)
  • Statistical Process Control (every x Minutes parts need to be checked by one of the worker)
    - generator
  • Tool Change (after x Parts or x minutes; this could be done with failures I guess)
    - setup after y parts
  • Maintenance Tasks (clean area once a week, change part xy once a month)
    - generator
  • Task xy (eg. every shift after x minutes, go to place A and process something for x minutes)..
