Step 2. Isolate Regions: PRT Planning

Using your diagram, draw rectangles around logical areas along the production route to identify your tracking regions.

Regions must:

Be contiguous.

Cover every physical part of the production process.

Not have any physical gaps to prevent lost or misrepresented data by the tracking model.

Have a data collection device or operator interface at its boundaries to inform the tracking model when a product or carrier passes.


One of 13 regions.


Each region is bounded by a devices as noted on the diagram.


There are no physical gaps between regions.


Even the detainment (Scrap) region is marked as a region.
