When publishing FDS Assets, the dwg blocks created are set to allow explode in AutoCAD. Why not set them to NO so that the bi-directional work flow is not broken so easily by poor Acad practice. An experienced user can reset this function if needed in the block editor.
We have discovered that while trying to make an asset, there is no way to use an existing asset in the creation of another. Assets should be accessible when creating assemblies not just when creating a factory layout. Many times we need to have assemblies that contain standard assets but we still need to be able to change those assets once they have been inserted. Right now you get an error that says that part contains a factory layout and cannot be used to make an asset. (see attached) This is because the only way to see the asset was to create a layout to insert it into.
i´m testing the labs tool Process Simulation 360 and i think it is a great tool and easy to use. But i don´t know the meaning of MTTR and MTBF and there is no discription.
And now my idea:
Create my layout in ACAD Architecture and put in all of my material flow, product and so on. Export an XML or something else and load it in this new labs tool. In Process Simulation 360 i want to check out if my layout can reach my output or what happen if my processor is faster, slower or stops for 2 hours because of a crash in the maschine.
A nice to have: All operations and stations are in Process Simulation 360 from my ACAD layout export.
Next: Process Simulation 360 integrated in Factory Design Suite 2013.
A customer at the Munich Summit 2011 would like to generate 2D views and multi sections on multi floor factory buildings including the face of the building for detail dimensioning. This is important for any factories for many customers.
