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.

I need updated link from *.iam to *.rvt file, with Axes and Levels support. I need possibility of using linked *.rvt geometry and axes via drawing creation.

I have been working on developing some workflows using the same AutoCAD building layout and then placing it as an XRef into different AutoCAD sublayouts.  These workflows work great for the FDS Standard version, but I have discovered a problem when syncing to Inventor.  For some reason it won't let me sync from Inventor to AutoCAD because it wants to overwrite the XRef files.  It would be much easier to simply see any XRef files as references also in Inventor and not attempt to overwrite them during the Sync process.  That way a master layout overlay could be used multiple times in a large comprehensive design.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.  Hope all is well and have a most blessed day!
