MANUPLAN is a tool for designing and analyzing manufacturing systems. In the early stages of manufacturing systems planning, it offers an efficient alternative to simulation modelling. MANUPLAN is based on a state-of-the-art analytical model. It is practical and easy to use, being simpler and quicker than simulations model. In a typical case, a system design that would have taken several weeks to evaluate using simulation was evaluated in under two days with MANUPLAN. Inputs to MANUPLAN are the… CONTINUE READING
