The Factory in Computer

The complexity of automating plants is increasing constantly. Accordingly, the expense for planning and control increases. At the same time, the planning security decreases. Hence there is a deviation between the planned and realised plant.

The market is forced to be flexible in warehousing and material flow. The increasing pressure of time with innovation or transformation makes the parallel development of product and production system inevitable.

For the planning, analysis and control of complex plants, the field of Production System developed a interactive graphical factory simulator SIMFLEX/3D.

With the help of Simulators, a team of engineers develops the Simulation’s model of your plant from the CAD layout based on VDI recommendations 3633. With experiments from the layout, the control strategies and operational parameters are changed until an optimal plant configuration and desired throughput is reached.
