Basic / Digital Planning

You want to plan a robot welding plant, but don't know whether the number of robots is sufficient to achieve the required number of components per day? You have a rough idea of how the production plant should look like later on, but you do not know whether the given area is sufficient to position all operating equipment (e.g. robots, jigs and fixtures) on it?
These and other questions are dealt with in the seminar Process Designer Basic / Digital Planning.
For this purpose, the basic functions of the software are first taught using an already completed, small project example. Here navigation and working method in the 3D graphics window are learned. The sequences of the individual production steps are checked in the bar chart (Gantt view) and the flow chart (Pert view). Furthermore, the data management, the library concept and import and export functions are discussed. In the further course of the seminar the planning of an own small robot welding plant is started.

All those who want to get into project work with the Process Designer.

No special previous knowledge required.

Learning goals:
Functional basics and introduction to working with Process Designer using a small project example. Understanding of the Process Designer data model and learning of the basic program functionalities, including handling in the 3D environment and creation of a Gantt and Pert diagram.

Day 1: Introduction to the Process Designer software

We look at a finished project: In the example robot welding machine we learn the basic functions of the Process Designer.
At the end of the day...
           … you know how to start the software and how to load the plant.
           … you will be able to navigate in the 3D graphic window and in the different trees.
           … you know the planning elements (product, resources, operations and manufacturing features).
           … you can position equipment such as robots and safety fences in space.
           … you know how the data is stored and how you can lock and release your plant for other employees.
           … you know the important basic functions of the software.

Day 2: New construction and planning of an own robot plant

We set up a new project and use different libraries with components, weld points and operating resources to create the robot plant.
At the end of the day...​
          … you know how to create a new project and the project structure.
          … you can import data and store CAD data in libraries.
          … you know how to assemble the component according to its joining sequence and how to assign weld points to the component.
          … you can create a study for the planning.
          … you have inserted equipment from the library into the study and positioned it in the 3D window.

Day 3: Expansion of the robot plant and cycle time statement

We extend the plant by adding a robot with a traversing axis. We plan the sequence of production steps in the plant in order to carry out a cycle time check in the Gantt diagram.
At the end of the day...​
          … you know how the robot is connected (attached) to the axis.
          … you have set up the plant in 3D so that you can determine the space required.
          … the plant is exported as a 3D image (JT) and viewed with JT2Go.
          … you have distributed weld points to the robots and know which robot is welding where with which tool and which weld points.
          … you have defined the work content of the robots and workers in the operation planning.
          … you are able to create the operation planning with the Pert view.
          … you can display the sequences of the individual operations in the Gantt diagram to check the cycle time.
          … you know how exports are carried out and how table views are generated: Output of a weld point list in MS Excel format.

Classroom seminar (3 days):

Currently there are no fixed attendance dates for the seminar Process Designer Basic / Digital Planning.

If you are interested, please contact us. We will be happy to make you an offer tailored to your personal needs.

- NEW – Live online seminar (3 days) - Conditions and dates:

We also offer this course as Live online seminar.

Based on the previous experience of the online seminars, the seminar duration per day is reduced compared to the face-to-face seminar. This results in a higher number of training days with the same content.

The trainer conducts the seminar via meeting software, presents the training material here and the tasks in Process Simulate / Process Designer are also demonstrated here.
The remote access of the participants to the ICARUS training notebooks is done via Microsoft Teams and practical exercises are performed independently. Since the notebooks are set up around the trainer's workstation, the trainer can provide assistance at any time if required.
Thus, two monitors are required for the participants.

The next dates:
There are currently no fixed dates planned.

If you are interested in an online course, please contact us for an offer and information about the conditions.
