Approach & Solution

Approach

KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) analysis, identification of possible bottlenecks in the workflow, improvement of production volumes. These are some of the points that most need analysis and precise monitoring in the geographical distribution of production.
An American company, included in the Fortune 500 list, which produces industrial equipment, household tools, safety products and locks, with a network of plants all over the world, has requested the support of Engineering to obtain a more efficient production and able to follow the industry 4.0 paradigms.

Solution

Engineering was engaged to substitute the existing simulation model already adopted using the Siemens Tecnomatix Plant Simulation product. After a thorough review of requirements, it was considered that the creation of a new, standard and adaptive global simulation model was the quickest and most cost-effective way to extend implementation to multiple facilities, considering their widespread consistency in terms of assembly lines and storage environments.
Within a “digital factory” vision, we thus developed a Global Plant Simulation project for analyzing and evaluating the processes that occur on production lines. One of the main advantages of the solution is its ability to easily adapt to the specificities of each system thanks to a simple user interface, in order to ensure rapid implementation and optimal use even for end users with little experience.
