To start the transport simulation, select the submodule “Transport simulation”.
After you have entered all the necessary data, IPO.Log 4 Material Flow calculates the transfer orders for the means of transport used. You can find an explanation of the individual functions and representations in this submodule here.
After the calculation, various evaluation options are available.
The report shows the number of means of transport used as a function of time. In the Gantt chart, the individual process steps of a means of transport and the respective departure times can be seen. The request list provides you with a detailed overview of the transfer orders.
These various displays and the following submodules show the number of means of transport used and, for example, the personnel requirements.
The 2D display also provides further analysis tools. By displaying the (dynamic) heat map or the Sankey diagram, you can obtain further information about the current status of your planning factory.
