Our future project structuring:
In the previous structure you always worked with projects and scenarios, with the scenarios being subordinate to the projects.
During planning in ipolog, projects, planning areas and scenarios are now available from release 2022-02 (ipolog).
The (ipolog) project forms the overarching bracket around different planning areas that may be interdependent.
In the example, the Factory Leonberg is the (ipolog) project. Within this project are the planning areas.
A planning area is a dissolved planned part out of a project. A distinction must be made between the planning areas for rough placement (module 4MF) and the planning areas for fine placement (module 4WS). These planning areas describe, for example in ipolog 4 Workspace, individual sections of the assembly line or warehouse sections to be planned separately.
There can be any number of scenarios for each planning area. The scenarios can be different variants or solutions of a planning cases or show planning stages in terms of time (for example 2022 / 2024 / 2026).
The structure of ipolog is analogous to a folder structure. The folder "Factory Leonberg" can contain all material flow planning for Leonberg (= planning area Factory hall 27 (4MF)) and the divided areas for a fine placement (= Factory hall 27 Assembly (4WS) and Factory hall 27 storage supermarket (4WS)) as one folder each.
As usual, the scenarios can be found within the planning areas.
