DGL

Line Balancing Software focused on machines and people and suitable to any mass production line.

FULL LAYOUT REPLICATION

Import your time and motion studies from DGM and DGI to define your whole process in a graphical way. 

Draw your layout by drag and drop and define its workflow.  

Then, setup all your Work-in-Progress (WIP) in a quick and easy way  to check the future performance of your whole process.

Efficient LINE BALANCING

Your imported time and motion studies contain only half of the relevant data for our line balancing algorithm 

The other part is customizable and allows you to launch several line balancing configurations to obtain the layout combination that best fits your needs and process. 

Following your guidelines, DGL will execute thousands of iterations to find the most efficient and accurate scenario for your process, saving tons of your time. 

You can choose between two algorithms according to your needs: produce at a faster pace or reduce the cost of your process. 

And that’s not all. The chosen line balancing algorithm is performed for each combination of workers. This way, you can check if you can get the same results with fewer workers! 

The output provides a complete set of data, such as the operations assigned to each worker, the algorithm’s actions, and a graphical comparison between the original and the balanced process. 

In addition, you can check the process time, process speed, standard hours, waiting waste, and charts for every worker combination. 

Finally, to facilitate the move to a pull system, DGL provides a takt time tool that automatically highlights the best combination based on your actual customer demand. 

REAL-TIME SIMULATIONS

Once DGL has balanced your line layout, it is a great idea to check its performance. 

By running simulations, you can find new bottlenecks by checking the WIP’s state in real-time. 

This way, you can also identify possible inventory waste merely by looking at the simulation while taking a coffee. 

Furthermore, waiting waste, can be easily detected by analyzing idle time at each stage of the process. 
Simulations are customizable and allow you to launch any configuration. 

Select your default WIPs or change some of them. Choose the preferred number of iterations, bearing in mind that larger iterations provide more reliable results. 

Also, simulations allow you to set an innovative feature that you won’t find in the market: sigma (σ). 

It is well known that operators do not work at a steady pace. Sigma is a statistical measurement of variability that allows you to launch more flexible, realistic simulations that will affect manual works within your process. 

The output provides important information, such as the number of cycles performed, parts per hour, working time, idle time, and a complete breakdown of the three phases of a process: filling, working and cleaning. 

And that’s not all. You will find the charts of the overall simulation, as well as each process stage and phase.

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

DGL is an intuitive application helping in the balancing of already-operating industrial processes, according to the ISC Methodology. DGL is intended to the balancing of machines and interfaces (people) in a production line.

This application allows the analysis of existing industrial processes for performing a comprehensive and independent analysis of every single operation within the process. As a final result, we will obtain a report providing the most accurate situation for the given layout, like critical path, workers spare time, process velocity, bottlenecks, WIPs state and so on.

If your production line has several industrial machines, it is suitable for DGL.
