Asprova Pocket Manual
Asprova pocket manual series are the documents which explain the function and the knowhow about Asprova. The pocket manual series not only supplement the missed function and the new one, but also introduce the knowhow in the actual operation.
we also uploaded the data file of the document. Please click here to login so that you can check and download the data.
Please note that the Asprova project data that accompanies some of the Pocket Manuals is only available to Asprova members.If you have not registered as an Asprova member, please click here to register as an Asprova member.
No.01 Splitting operations
Divide operations up within one process and distribute them to multiple resources. Match to actual on-site lot size flow. Reduce lot size to cut lead-time.
No.02 Schedule Evaluation
Examine the results of rescheduling from many different aspects Run simulations and compare schedule results.
No.03 Graphical Master View
Easy creation of master data using a graphical view.
No.04 Multiple assignment to the same equipment
We frequently see in the fabrication of semiconductors, the use of an Asprova APS to make multiple assignments on the same machine. The assignment of simple parameters leads to empty time and that leads to a poor plan. Here we will show you methods of assigning parameters that will prevent that from happening.
No.05 Organizing orders
Here we introduce a method that uses the auto-replenishment production function to generate medium-term product orders in one-to-one format and then has workers make decisions and organize those replenishment orders.
No.06 Pallets and yield settings
We introduce here a method for determining the number of units to be entered in the initial process of car part manufacturing, when auto-replenishment production is used, pallets with a predetermined number of items are moving forward on a processing line and estimated yield is reached during the process.
No.07 Selecting operations
Use the “Upload selected operations command” to display in the operations table, and in a favored style, the operation selected by Gantt resources chart.
No.08 Operation splitting techniques
Use the Upload selected operations command to automate routine work.
No.09 Using only one resource per time slot
Two examples of a method for controlling the number of operations that use sub-resources and are allocated to the same time slot.
No.10 Exporting to Excel
Here we use Excel as our example to output forms to Excel and show assignments for starting and printing from Excel.
No.11 Yield per resource
Here’s an example of how to program when yields differ for each resource.
No.12 Setup times
Explanation of the available functions used for creating setup tasks.
No.13 Parametric features of the integrated master
On these pages, valid condition expressions will be used to show master data (Integrated Master Table) adaptable to a wide range of conditions. These conditions are assigned to reduce data volume. An example application will be used to introduce a general-purpose master for use with individual orders received that allows rescheduling of new items without changing the master data.
No.14 Detecting assignment changes
We will now show you a method for visually detecting changes in scheduling results on resource charts and operation tables. We will also present a method for visually comparing scheduled and actual performance.
No.15 Theory of Constraints and Asprova
The theory of constraints is frequently discussed as a method for improving factory production capacity. Here we’ll look at simple examples of the phenomena in partial optimization that is not based on the theory of constraints and important points in the use of Asprova that are based on TOC.
