This RSView32 Juice Bottling demo was designed to simulate a juice bottling operatino. I designed it specifically for use in a PlantMetrics demo. The main purpose of this simulation was to mimic product scrap and line breakdowns, which then could be tracked in Rockwell's PlantMetrics software.
First, a bottle filler and capper had to be created and animated from scratch. A video and picture of a FOGG system (included in project directory) was used as a baseline. Once the screens were finished, it became apparent that there was just too much going on for RSView32 to animate smoothly. To resolve this problem the main screen was simplified, and two detail screens were added.
The scrap which is simulated comes in four types: Over-filled bottles, under-filled bottles, bottles without a cap, and bottles with a high (unsealed) cap. Each type of scrap condition can be simulated on the detail screens.
Breakdowns are also simulated and can be forced from the main window. They come in 8 types that are listed in a pop-up window at the end of the breakdown event.
