Optimize layouts in an innovative and cost-efficient way

Visualize how your new production line will operate to ensure an efficient process

We understand that designing a high-performing production line is complex and time-consuming. Therefore, using a design tool can help you to simplify tasks, avoid bottlenecks through simulation and reduce investment risks.

Simulation is a way to understand the impact of changes before they are implemented in real life. That means it is possible to get feedback on how a system behaves without having the real system in place. 

Test future production volumes and new product mixes

For a simulation to be accurate, the system's logic must be built according to a detailed specification defined by three different categories: system description, input data, and scenarios.

  1. System description: defines the behavior of the system. It states how all processes interact and under what conditions they run.

  2. Input data: E.g., order data, the delivery schedule for raw material, or cycle times. Input data and system description are enough to build a simulation model representing reality.

  3. Scenarios: the simulation model is often built to test different scenarios and new product mixes. You can also do a wide variety of tests to see the effect on your production, e.g., what happens if a machine stops more frequently than expected or what happens if an operator can't reach a certain throughput.

Optimize layouts in an innovative and cost-efficient way

A simulation model helps optimize both new as well as existing layouts. Since it is possible to visualize a system before it is implemented, the simulation can detect potential problems. This leads to a financial advantage since it costs less to fix errors in the computer than in reality. 

Other benefits: 

  • Simulate months of production within minutes
  • Improved communication between customer and supplier
  • Verify new and innovative ideas 
  • Test how well the production can meet the needs of the market
