SIMOGGA Planner

SIMOGGA Planner

SIMOGGA Planner is used to simulate different scheduling scenarios: the user interface shows the impact of the congestion in the aisles and the level of the Work-In-Progress for the different periods.

The Planner optimizes your manufacturing operations:

  • Maximize efficiency to ensure smooth operations,
  • Maximize profit,
  • Minimize your ecological footprint,

given limited resources (assets such as machines, buildings, vehicles, employees, time, budget) and respecting constraints (working hours, skills, affinities or logistic conflicts).
The Planner is used to validate hypotheses as it allows to quantify and schedule alternatives.  It takes the various product evolutions as well as the category of products into consideration and identifies bottlenecks for specific configurations while validating investments.

Simogga_Planner

  • Allows you to quantify, visualize and test alternatives
  • Eases identification of bottlenecks and organisational flaws
  • Scales down complexity of your manufacturing operations
  • Plans your optimized production

  • Decrease lead time up to 75%
  • Easy to use
  • Graphical representation of the schedule
  • Immediate assessment of KPIs
  • Quick compare of multiple schedules
  • Automatic identification of the bottlenecks
  • Optimize the machine and operator usage

Data

  • Schedule each step of the processes from the setup to the measurement
  • Set global and sub shifts for each machine
  • Linked to SIMOGGA Layout Design to take into account the travel distances
  • Attach operator(s) to specific machines or to the whole factory
  • Automatic reassignment of the products to different machines
  • Customize the batches
  • Define the schedule’s priority
  • Identify bottleneck(s)
  • Limit the number of concurrent orders treated in the shop floor
  • Modify all parameters of the schedule on the fly
  • Group products for specific machines and operations

Analysis/Results

  • The tool can always be used with a small amount of data
  • Use different levels of details to simulate a part or the global floor shop
  • Simulate the production with randomized orders if the list of orders is not available
  • Multiples KPIs (lead time, use of machines, lateness, makespan, wait time, etc.)
  • Shows multiple graphs representing each KPI
  • Quick comparison mode in order to compare multiple schedules data and results
  • Summary of the configuration for each schedule
  • Detailed information on each machine/product/order
  • Gantt Chart of the schedule
  • CSV, JPG,PNG exportation
  • Use the extracted data from the ERP or configure new data through the user interface.
  • Configure the schedule based on your needs (shifts, capacity, resources…)
  • Launch the scheduler
  • Generate different scenarios to compare the influence of the different decision
  • Find and remove the bottleneck machines
  • SIMOGGA proposes an optimized schedule to
    • Generate the list of tasks by workcenter
    • Generate the weekly planning
    • Validate a new layout for the factory

SIMOGGA is based on Qt framework and has been tested on the following platforms:

  • Microsoft Windows 10, x86-32 and x64
  • Microsoft Windows 8.1, x86-32 and x64
  • Microsoft Windows 7 SP1, x86-32 and x64
  • Microsoft Windows Vista SP2, x86-32 and x64
  • Apple Mac OS X 10.9 (Maverick) or later, Universal

SIMOGGA may also be installed on other platforms not included in this list (such as other Mac OS or Windows distributions), but we cannot guarantee its full platform compatibility.
SIMOGGA installation requires 300MB of free disk space. We recommend to have 4GB of memory and modern processor for optimal performance. Mouse is typically preferable to touchpad for graphical editing.

Tutorial

If you want to have more information or to understand how to fully resolve a case with SIMOGGA; we recommend you to watch one of our video tutorials. In the showcased video, we explain how to configure the planner to fit your requirements and how to take advantage of the generated schedule to understand where your bottlenecks and how to improve the lead time of your production.

We also demonstrate the numerous options available to analyze your production and to enhance the overall workflow of your plant.
