Time Study Expert

Analyze the complexity of operations assigned to workplaces and use state-of-the-art industry standards to compute operation times accurately with the Time Study Expert Role

With the DELMIA 3DEXPERIENCE Time Study Expert (TSX) Role the industrial engineer has a powerful application to analyze the very details of operations assigned to workplaces using state-of-the-art industry standards to accurately compute operation times.

The time analysis allows the optimization of existing and designing of new workplaces for production efficiency. At the same time, it can help to maintain the workers’ health and reduce fatigue. TSX uses scientific methods such as ones provided by the MTM (Methods-Time Measurement) Association (e.g. MTM-UAS, MTM-1) or MOST (Maynard Operation Sequence Technique) to overcome traditional stopwatch-based techniques. To keep existing IP, TSX also includes existing (best-practice) data that has been developed by the customer. Last but not least, thanks to the full integration within the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, the time studies performed by TSX along with equipment allocation and line balancing can be used in Process Engineer (PPL).

TSX also provides authoring capabilities for process plans (workplan, system, operations) which link to the manufacturing items structure (MBOM) and balance operations. Additionally, users can view the virtual build in the process plan to inspect the effects of analyzed durations and the balanced operations on the build-up, especially when operation sequences are changing.

Time Study Expert Benefits

Time analysis based on company and industry standards

Many companies have already invested significant time and effort in capturing time analysis for manufacturing and assembly processes. TSX allows planners to define and use customized data cards in addition to the industry standards delivered OOTB. Data can be converted for the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

Reduced time and effort for application users to optimize the total productivity of workers and efficiency of the production system

Provides an easy-to-learn/easy-to-use interface, which is suited for occasional users as well as time analysis experts. Expert users can enter quickly and directly code in a spreadsheet-like manner while non-expert users might prefer to work based on data cards.

Full integration with process engineering and workplace design in 3D

Integration with the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform means there is no disconnect between the creation of time analysis and the usage of the results. The user can directly create the analysis based on inspection of the 3D Information (product, resource layout, distances between human worker and the objects to grab, reach, position, etc.). The consequences are directly visible in the production system utilization and balancing charts. This shortens cycle times and avoids additional interfaces between software applications and systems.
