Process Modeling introduces a simple yet powerful way to manage processes and production flow in your layout. A process is a representation of a machine, work phase, inventory, buffer or some other production step. In Process Modeling, a Process is expressed as a set of statements which assign certain behaviors to a product. Processes are built from statements using the Process Editor.
The Process Modeling workflow was designed to resemble how real-world production design is done in practice. It consists of the following five steps:
