In ipolog 4 Material Flow you will find an evaluation of the manpower requirements.
It offers 3 different views to evaluate the personnel of the project.
Basis of the manpower calculation: DSC, SC and transports
The processes defined in the default supply chain editor form the basis here. In connection with the selected workers and processes in the default supply chains, they form the basis for this evaluation. In the following, the personnel requirements are explained using a 3-step standard supply chain including 2 disposal chains.
The manpowercalculation is based on both blue-marked step processes and green-marked transport processes. The same applies to the processes from the standard supply chains.
For the processes (marked blue above) the basis is the area from the supply chain.
Evaluation 1 Detail View & General Explanation Personnel Calculation
For each layout structure and material area in the upper table for each process (marked blue in the screenshot of the standard supply chain) for each part of this process per shift is considered. The basis here is the loading unit (LE) / load carrier (LT) / parts per day calculation from the quantity structure or the product data in ipolog.
The tabular evaluation contains the following information:
- Material area
- shift schedule
- process component
- Process time incl. distribution times [s]
- process reference variable
- Evaluations per shift and per day:
- Number of processes/shift (day)
- Total process time [s]/ shift (day)
- Net working time [h]/shift (day)
- Number of workers incl. distribution times/shift (day)
The workers are evaluated here for a maximum of three shifts per shift plan. The number of shifts for which an evaluation takes place depends on the selected shift schedule for the operator. For example, if a worker has assigned a shift plan that only consists of two shifts, the columns of the third shift in the table are empty.
The manpower requirements are updated automatically as soon as the input data for calculating the manpower requirements is changed. This affects, for example, the times of the process modules or the process modules defined in the standard supply chains.
When calculating manpower requirements, there is a visual evaluation using a bar chart and a tabular evaluation. Only the manpower requirements per material area are displayed in the bar chart.
Evaluation of personnel requirements for transports
As of Release 2019-06, the manpower required for the transports is evaluated. The evaluation can be found below the detailed evaluation at process level.
The evaluation is based on the following criteria:
Means of transport category/route
means of transport
Instances per means of transport type
Assigned shift plan of the means of transport
Evaluations per shift:
The calculation is analogous to the table Transportation KPI in Transport Simulation (see Calculation Transportation KPI). For the evaluation of the personnel requirements, the corresponding worker is now displayed for each route who is assigned to the means of transport on the route (see Creating Routes). For direct means of transport, the workers assigned to the stage transport are displayed (see Standard Process Chain Editor submodule or Supply Chain Editor submodule).
Export detailed view
For a detailed evaluation of the personnel requirements, an export button can be found in the upper left corner. The evaluation of the personnel requirement can be exported from the software as an Excel file.
As soon as the export is started, a dialog appears in which the storage location and file name are to be defined. After saving, the user receives direct feedback from the software when the export has been successfully completed.
Evaluation 2 Layout structure
In addition to the detailed evaluation, the manpower can also be evaluated sorted according to the layout structure. The evaluation is carried out using a tree structure. The top node is the hall. All layout levels and all transports are displayed below the hall.
Manually added workers can be added via the employee group and are part of the shipments.
Evaluation 3 Operator type
The worker type evaluation is used for grouping according to the worker types. For each type, you can see on the right in the table in which layout structure or means of transport the worker requirement arises.
