Process Analysis 360

Status: Gathering Support
by Contributor DMRICSJN on ‎10-14-2015 05:07 AM

Hi Guy's

Process Analysis is easy to start and operate even as a newbee, but also very limited if it should work in a logistic or manufactoring industry!

I will apreciate if:

  • A SW tool for writing strings that constrain more sophisticated features e.g.  What if ...then or Case, Math functions or other Events
  • Input/output options from PLC SW
  • Inputs from e.g. external sensors
  • 3D illustations tools and/or smooth interaction with Inventor/Factory/Navis..

I believed it's great to have these but will complicated for engineer who not familiar with program.

Tecnomatix have almost these fuctions but i rarely use and looking simpler approach.

Thanks for your feedback on PA360.  I understand the needs to have these features.  However, as Muoi pointed out, we try to keep the workflows and features as simple as possible so that most of engineers can learn and use it in a short time for a rough analysis.

I do understand your priority, but never the less it will be very much better to have some more functionality.


  1. A processor can direct the output to either Processor A or Processor B based on a random number or IF a statement is "ON". (not only based upon the ProcessorA/B are bussy etc)
  2. Control the ON/OFF bottum of a Processor, Operator, Source, Buffer through events or other processes.

Thanks for your suggestion. It makes sense to me.  I will collect it into our backlog and consider it for the future release.
