Automation, Robotics and Man-Machine Process Modeling
Timer Pro creates automation, robotic and man-machine process models.
With today’s aging workforce and tight labor markets, manufacturers everywhere are looking at opportunities in automation, robotic and man-machine applications.
The amount of money being invested in these solutions is significant while data to justify the expenditures is often subjective and difficult to model. Timer Pro automation models can often be created in less than an hour.
An automation ribbon in Timer Pro’s balance module allows rapid modeling of machine clusters, robotic cells and man-machine processes. Most importantly you can use these models to instantly quantify the effect of any change in activity on the productivity and OEE of the process.
A Timer Pro automation model visually presents your processes in a unique, clear and quickly understandable way that we are told is far superior to the traditional Gantt charts used by the automation vendors.

Automation models allow you to rapidly explore multiple performance scenarios to cost justify investment expenditures, track the ROI on investments as well as optimize existing processes. New clients are reporting that this feature alone can often justify Timer Pro with their first model.
Sample results from an Automation Model are shown below. The summary results show by asset: the activity being performed, the time for that activity, total cycle time, units per hours, OEE time, OEE%, value added time and value added OEE%.

Timer Pro’s Video Time Study module is the perfect complement as you create automation models of your current processes.
The actions of your automation assets are consistent. Therefore a single cycle video of your process will give you all the times you need to create an accurate automation model. Video time studies unique features allow you to quickly record each asset’s activity times with millisecond accuracy to support your continuous improvement initiatives.
Ideal for Equipment Vendors and System Integrators
Automation vendors and system integrators can use automation models to support their proposed solutions to potential clients.
Timer Pro includes a free web service that allows vendors and integrators users to securely share their automation report packages and their actual models for review online by potential customers. The customers are able to view the model in an on-line hosted limited feature copy of Timer Pro where they can examine the detail of your model but cannot make any changes. Absolutely no company or customer identifiable data is required, collected or stored.
