Internal company analyses have shown that the efficiency of unloading as well as loading should be significantly increased. They have opted for the traileryard concept so that parts with high variance, highly fluctuating installation rates and high volumes can be delivered more flexibly, irrespective of the transport time.
Accordingly, as an ipolog planner, you integrate the requirement to consider the traileryard in the planning. Your first task is to create a new layout level and name it "traileryard". To do this, open the Layout Editor. Make sure that the traileryard is subordinate to the goods receipt in the layout structure. Use the following illustration as a guide.
Proceed as described as in task 1.1 Layout planning - layout structure
After you have extended the path network, add stops and assign areas to them. The result is shown in the following figure.
After you have customized the layout, implement the necessary requirements in this step. The parts that are transferred to the traileryard concept must be assigned to a new standard supply chain (SVK). To do this, open the process chain editor in the material flow planning submodule. Create a new standard process chain with the name "TY_Stapler_via_Puffer". Fill in the SVK according to the following figure.
As soon as a part is delivered from the traileryard, the truck drives a route, which you may create in the following. To do this, switch to the Layout Planning submodule again. Click on the "Create routes" tab and create the route as shown in the screenshot below. Make sure that your route starts at the stop in the traileryard.
You have now met all the requirements to assign the parts of the new SVK in the decision tree. To do this, open the "Assign part families to SVKs" tab in the Material flow planning submodule. Then remove the "Stacker_via_Puffer" node in the decision tree and click on "Filter". Now filter according to the "Part designation" property.
The wheel and seat parts have a high variance. The parts rear spoiler, front lip, rear diffuser, panoramic roof panel and the associated roof trim have a highly fluctuating installation rate. In addition, the underbody panel is relatively very large in volume. Therefore, management has decided to transfer all of these parts to the traileryard concept.
Now add all the parts just mentioned to node 1 and assign all the remaining parts to a new node (node 2). Then click on "Apply filter". Now you still have to assign SVKs to the nodes. Node 1 contains all parts for the traileryard concept, so the SVK "TY_Stapler_via_Puffer" should be selected here. Node 2 contains the remaining parts, which must be assigned to the SVK "Stapler_via_Puffer" as before. You can see the result in the following screenshot.
After you have assigned the appropriate SVK to all parts, you must then assign the material area "Traileryard" to all LOG_IDs in stage 4 in the SVK "TY_Stapler_via_Puffer" in the process chain editor. Note that they specify the route as in the figure below "Traileryard_Route" and use the trailer type truck_trailer.
Use the Multiselect function when selecting the LOG_IDs. Click once on the top LOG_ID and then hold down "Shift" before selecting the last LOG_ID.
Congratulations, the traileryard concept is now fully reflected in your planning. Finally, check in the Transport Planning submodule "Transport Simulation" whether changes are visible when you click on "Recalculate transports".
