Process Modeling Flows

Process Modeling introduces a simple yet powerful way to manage processes and production flow in your layout. A process represents a machine, work phase, inventory, buffer, or other production step. In Process Modeling, a Process is expressed as a set of statements which assign certain behaviors to a product. Processes are connected using transport links, and the Flow Editor panel shows the process flow sequences.

The Process Modeling workflow was designed to resemble how real-world production design is done in practice. It consists of the following five steps:

  1. Layout design.
  2. Define products, their visualization, structure and properties.
  3. Define processes, like machines, workstations, inventories and buffers using task statements.
  4. Define flow by creating sequences of processes that products must complete.
  5. Run the simulations, collect KPIs, and make necessary changes to achieve your goals.

This course focuses mainly on step four (4) which is constructing process flows.
