Production line planning

Factory and line design

Design assembly lines, equipment and tool requirements in a 3D environment. Optimize factory space and maximize capital resource utilization by digitally configuring factory layouts.

Conceptualize production layouts using 3D

Leverage a complete production layout solution for manufacturing engineers. Enable efficient work with manufacturing components and easily accommodate changes. Use the integrated system to search, view and retrieve components across a fully classified library in Teamcenter, directly from NX.


Integrate layouts with production processes

Perform production system design with a single software system. Support the entire workflow from product and line design to commissioning. Use line designs to validate the manufacturing process with simulation, including programmable logic controller (PLC) program validation, in a virtual environment before use on real production equipment.

Leverage point cloud scan data for factory optimization

Compare your virtual production facility layout model to your physical production facility layout with ease. Use point clouds digitally scanned from existing brownfield environments to create new factory items or modify existing factory models after making on-site changes.

Report and document factory and line designs visually

Browse PLM data in an interactive navigator to view the details. Configure visual reports to display color-coded information on the manufacturing equipment, including component type, design changes, suppliers, investment cost and build dates. Manage visual reports and distribute them to the entire enterprise.
