Layout Planning with PP Tool


In order to achieve high-quality planning results and successfully complete the planning in the desired time, the early involvement of all employees who are directly and indirectly involved in the planning is necessary. In a first planning step, a rough layout must first be created in which the work surfaces are displayed individually in the form of base areas. A simple, clear and for everyone understandable representation of this rough layout is possible with the help of the factory layout PowerPoint Addin developed by the WZL.

The free tool enables fast, true-to-scale and presentable block layout creation without having to learn complicated planning software beforehand - only the basic knowledge of Microsoft PowerPoint is required, so operation is intuitive and successful planning can begin. Further information about the factory planning tool can be found here.
