Use plant simulation and throughout optimization to improve manufacturing performance

Use the power of discrete event simulation for production throughput analysis and optimization to improve your manufacturing system performance.

Tecnomatix Plant Simulation allows you to model, simulate, explore and optimize logistics systems and their processes. These models enable analysis of material flow, resource utilization and logistics for all levels of manufacturing planning from global production facilities to local plants and specific lines, well in advance of production execution.

What is manufacturing simulation?

Logistics is crucial to a company's success due to rising production costs and globalization. Delivering on time and in sequence, introducing lean manufacturing principles, planning and building new sustainable production facilities, and managing global production networks require objective decision criteria to compare alternative approaches. Plant Simulation creates digital models of logistics systems so companies can optimize performance. The digital model allows users to run experiments and what-if scenarios without disturbing an existing production system. It can also be used in planning long before the real system is installed. Extensive analysis tools, statistics, and charts help users evaluate manufacturing scenarios and make fast, reliable decisions early in production planning.

Plant Simulation helps manufacturers to:

  • Detect and eliminate problems that otherwise would require cost and time-consuming corrective measures during production ramp-up

  • Minimize the investment cost of production lines without jeopardizing the required output

  • Optimize the performance and energy usage of existing production systems by taking measures that have been verified in a simulation environment prior to implementation
