Why not use a spreadsheet to size and optimize a workcell? Well, because “It doesn’t work!” Product mix changes, variability and resource reassignment make calculations difficult and unreliable at best. On the other hand, workcell simulation allows accurate prediction of a workcells capability and optimization a reality. […]
