|This procedure describes how to update the calculated
cycle times associated with a particular activity. The default cycle
time for each activity is recalculated as a simulation runs. This
command enables you to determine what the cycle times are without running
a complete simulation, and consequently enables you to make modifications
to activities prior to running a simulation.
The calculated cycle time differs from the specified cycle time for speed-based activities such as device and robot-based actions; for most assembly and simulation activities, the two times are identical once the cycle time command has been run.
This procedure can be run with the Gantt chart view of the process present, in which case, the Gantt chart also shows the time of each activity. (See Tools > Options > Digital Process for Manufacturing > Gantt Chart tab in Process and Resource Definition User's Guide).
|To use this procedure, you must have a process created.|
|It is recommended that you first run the simulation using Process Simulation to make sure your process is running correctly (e.g., that your robot is not attempting to reach unreachable tags), and then use the Update Process Cycle Time to update the calculated cycle times.|
