In a production model you are only able to add cells of groups of machines but this does not allow for the line to split into multi-machine legs. on some of our production lines we have a moulding line that produces at a rate that one packaging line can not handle so the line splits into several packaging legs with a robot, wrapping machine, cartoner and palletizer. It would be very beneficial to have these all together for scheduling and OEE tracking purposes.
