    1 Basics

    1. 1 Production Simulation1. 1. 1 Modeling of a new production line

    New production lines are created in ProductionSimulation . Models for creation of a production line areavailable in a library. You can easily position and align a model using predefined coupling points on themodels. This way station models are aligned and connected to the transport system. The connection orcoupling points correspond to the stopper positions of the transport system.

    To create new production lines use the command New Production Line in the Filemenu. This commandstarts a system editor which helps you in modeling the production line .

    Note: New production lines cannot be created with the Newbutton in the toolbar.

    The following example will show you how to model a production line. In a second step you will see how tosave the production line and how to switch to the view mode.

    Modeling a new production line in Production Simulation

    1. Start Production Simulation. Execute theCIROS Production Simulationlink in theprogram group CIROS Productionin the startmenu of Microsoft Windows.

    2. Click on New Production Line in the Filemenu.A save dialog Create a new productionlinewill appear.

    3. You can use the default save folder or chooseany other folder. Enter a file name and click onthe Savebutton

    4. A model of an empty production line will open. When a new production line is created, a number ofsettings are made automatically:

    the program switches to Edit modeTop viewis selected as the viewthe Model Librarieswindows is opened

    5. If the model library Festo FMSis not open, click on the + symbol of Festo FMS.You can findinformation, such as functional descriptions, in the online help in the chapter CIROSProduction. A short description is displayed if you select a model and click on the Morebutton in theModel Libraries windows.

    6. First add the model Transport System 6. To dothis click on the entry Transport System 6andthen on the Add button.You can also add a model by double clicking onthe model entry.The production line now contains only theTransport System 6model. The model isdisplayed in green since it is still highlighted.

    7. Now add the model Station StockSinglein the same way. In older library versions you will find the entryStation Stockinstead that you may use.

    8. Align the model Station StockSinglewith the transport system. For that click on the coupling point ofthe Station StockSingleand hold the left mouse button. Now move the coupling point to the top leftcoupling point of the Transport System 6and leave the mouse button.The Station StockSingleis now connected to the transport system. The position and orientation is setautomatically.

    9. Add the model Station A ssembly RV-1A .10.Connect the model Station Assembly RV-1A tothe bottom left coupling point of the Transport

    System 6.Click on the highlighted assembly station andhold the left mouse button. Now drag theassembly station to bottom left coupling pointof the transport system.

    11.Finally add the Modell Station M ill 55andconnect it to the bottom right coupling point ofthe transport system.

    As soon as your production line has been created

    exit from the Edit Mode. Change to the View Modeto get a realistic 3D view of the production line.

    Changing the View Mode

    1. Deactivate the command Edit Modein the Executemenu by clicking on it. The tick next to the entry EditModewill then disappear.

    2. You will get a 3D view of your production line. The display will be a top view.

    3. To get a perspective view of the 3D model select for example the command StandardViews -> DefaultSettingin the Viewmenu. If you use the right mouse button anywhere on the editor surface you will seethe same options as in the View -> StandardViewsmenu.

    You have to save the new production line in order to create a project for a production line control systemand production simulation.

    Saving a production line

    1. Clickon Create plant in the Extrasmenu.This command causes the production line to besaved as a *.MOD file automatically. At thesame time a data interchange file is created.This data interchange file is required by

    Production Supervisionin order to be able togenerate a project for the production controlsystem automatically.

    2. The window Save plant filewill open.You can choose any directory for the XML file.But it is better to save the XML file in the samedirectory as the associated MOD file is saved.Accept the file name which is offered and clickon the Savebutton.

    Note: If you want to save the production line only as MOD file without creating a XML file thenuse the Savecommand in the Filemenu.

    1. 1. 2 Changing or extending an existing production line

    You can change a production line and for example add more stations.

    Changing an already created production line

    1. Start Production Simulationwith the link CIROS Production Simulationwhich you can find in theprogram group CIROS Productionof the start menu.

    If Production Simulationalready is running make sure production in Production Supervision is stopped.Then go on with step 4.

    2. To load certain production line click on Openinthe Filemenu.

    3. An Open Filewindow opens. Choose the folderthe production line is saved in. Then select theMOD file Example.mod and click on Open.

    4. By default the View Modeis enabled but tochange the production line the Edit Modeisneeded. Therefore activate it by clicking on

    Edit Modein the Executemenu.

    5. You should reset the workcell before makingchange on a production line. The commandReset Workcellin the Editmenu will do that.

    6. If you want to add another station, change theview into top view. C lick on Top Viewwhichyou can either find in the menu under View ->StandardViewsor with a right click on theeditor surface.

    7. Select an appropriate view of the productionline by zooming, moving and rotating the

    production line.

    Note:The editing mode is exited when commandsare executed from the view menu. Make surethat the editing mode is restarted beforeadding new models.

    8. Click on Model Libraries in the Modelingmenu to open the model libraries window.

    9. Make the desired modifications to theproduction line, for example by adding a CNC

    turn machine. Double click in the library on theentry Station Turn 55. The station will beadded.

    10.Close the model library in order to see thecomplete production line.

    11.Connect the new model Station Turn 55withthe right-hand coupling point of the TransportSystem 6model. Todo this click left on thecoupling point of the CNC station and drag it tothe right-hand coupling point of the transportsystem. Leave the left mouse button and the

    Station Turn 55will align automatically.

    12.If you wish to delete a station in the productionline then select the specific station by a leftclick. If it is highlighted in green click on it withthe right mouse button and execute the Deletecommand.

    13.Leave the editing mode after you have finishedthe modifications to the production line.Deactivate it by clicking on Edit Modein theModelingmenu.

    14.Save the modified production line. Click on theSavecommand in the Filemenu.If you want to save the changed production linewith a different file name then choose SaveAs instead. A save dialog will open and youmay enter a d ifferent name.

    15.In order to prepare the project for ProductionSupervisionactivate the Create plantcommandof theExtrasmenu. An XML-formatted data interchange file will begenerated.

    Note: When you make modifications toa production line, the functionality of the production linewill change in most cases as well. If this is the case you must adopt the production controlsystem appropriately. If you are working with an automatically generated productioncontrol system, you must generate the entire project again in Production Supervision .

    1. 1. 3 Working with the system editorIn Production Simulationyou have a free choice of perspective view of the production line. With a fewcertain commands you can rotate, move or zoom the production line display.

    The perspective view is defined by the coordinatesof the viewer (= standpoint) and a reference pointon the production line (= mid-point).

    Moving the production line

    1. Activate the Movecommand in the Viewmenu. The mouse cursor will changeinto a small coordinate system. This indicates the direction in which thestandpoint and reference point can be moved. A dotted arrow indicates thatmoving in the direction concerned is not possible.

    2. Hold the left mouse button.3. Move the mouse cursor in Z or X direction.4. Release the mouse button again.

    The view will then change as desired.

    You can also activate the Movecommand by holding down the Shift key and then pressing the
