It’s not too late to get your seat at the workshop where you will learn about an innovative tool called the Tissue Plant Layout Simulator (PLS) that uses your calculations to pinpoint issues and minimize bottlenecks. TAPPI is offering this new course, which is designed to instruct those in tissue converting operations how to use this new tool. The Tissue PLS program offers you the ability to analyze and pinpoint trouble spots in the converting line from the comfort of your desk.

This one-day workshop can help you:
  • Apply the continuity principle to converting line analysis
  • Identify tissue converting system bottlenecks and how they move with changes to equipment capabilities and tissue product design
  • Understand the benefits of line speed tuning/harmonization and how to calculate speed balances
  • Utilize process simulation and modeling, and how to apply the technology to understand and improve converting operations
  • Pinpoint typical converting benchmarks on your equipment
  • Understand the application of automatic quality systems in the converting line.
Added Benefit
Participants will also benefit from a limited 30-day license for this simulation software, which can be useful in marketing and in production to check existing lines and define potential new products.
