Plant Simulation

Supplier: Product Lifecycle Management Australasia

Plant Simulation enables you to create well-structured, hierarchical models of production facilities, lines and processes. This is achieved through powerful object-oriented architecture and modeling capabilities that enable you to create and maintain even highly complex systems, including advanced control mechanisms.

Price Guide: POA

Plant Simulation simulations are used to optimize throughput, relieve bottlenecks and minimize work-in-process. The simulation models take into consideration internal and external supply chains, production resources and business processes, allowing you to analyze the impact of different production variations.

You can evaluate different line production control strategies and verify synchronization of lines and sub-lines. The system lets you define various material flow rules and check their effect on the line’s performance. Control rules are chosen from libraries and may be further detailed to model highly sophisticated controls.

Optimisation can also be done automatically by using the Plant Simulation genetic algorithms module. This is especially useful if a variety of system parameters and constraints make it difficult to find the optimum.

Plant Simulation analysis tools allow for easy interpretation of simulation results. Statistical analysis, graphs and charts display the utilization of buffers, machines and personnel. You can generate extensive statistics and charts to support dynamic analysis of performance parameters including line workload, breakdowns, idle and repair time and proprietary key performance factors.

In addition to the highly efficient 2D view, simulation may be visualized in a virtual, reality-like 3D environment. Using Plant Simulation’s libraries or CAD data, impressive 3D models can be built and used in several ways, including:

•Easy-to-understand platform for internal and external discussions
•Management presentations
•Demonstration to customers
•Trade show displays
•Brochures, animations and other sales tools.
