Tecnomatix® Plant Simulation software
enables the simulation, visualization, analysis and optimization of production systems
and logistics processes. Using Plant
Simulation enables you to optimize material flow, resource utilization and logistics
for all levels of plant planning, from global
facilities and local plants to specific production lines.
In times of increasing cost and time pressures in production along with ongoing
globalization, logistics has become a key
factor in the success of a company. The
need to deliver on time and in sequence,
introduce lean manufacturing principles,
plan and build new, sustainable production
facilities, and manage global production
networks requires objective decision criteria to help management evaluate and
compare alternative approaches.
Plant Simulation helps to create digital
models of logistics systems so you can
explore system characteristics and optimize
their performance. The digital model not
only enables users to run experiments and
what-if scenarios without disturbing an
existing production system, but it can be
used in the planning process long before
the real system is installed. Extensive analysis tools, statistics and charts let users
evaluate different manufacturing scenarios
and make fast, reliable decisions in the
early stages of production planning. Plant
Simulation helps you to:
• Detect and eliminate problems that
otherwise would require cost- and timeconsuming corrective measures during
production rampup
• Minimize the investment cost of
production lines without jeopardizing
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
Modeling manufacturing processes
Plant Simulation enables you to create wellstructured, hierarchical models of
Tecnomatix Plant Simulation
resources and business processes, allowing
you to analyze the impact of different production variations. 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.
Context-sensitive ribbon menus and
energy analysis tools make it easy
to assess system energy usage.
