Factory and line design

Quickly design, visualize, simulate and optimize complete production layouts with less risk and at lower cost, and easily associate them to manufacturing plans using a single system.

Design better factories and lines faster

Enable accurate impact analysis and efficient change management for factory layouts, line layouts and equipment designs directly linked to manufacturing process plans.

Create required fixtures, tools and equipment using a classified library of parametric resources integrated with manufacturing planning and factory design to achieve a better production layout faster.

Validate and optimize factory line designs

Use simulation software directly within the line planning environment to fully validate and optimize your factory designs and production layouts.

Simulate operations including robots, tools, material handling equipment and people at the detailed station level, line level or factory level to optimize automation and equipment locations, ergonomic requirements, material delivery strategies and production rates.

Commission factory production lines virtually

Use hardware-in-the-loop (HiL) and software-in-the-loop (SiL) simulation technology to virtually commission assembly lines and equipment during installation and prior to the start of production.

Test control logic and the interfaces between mechanical and electrical engineering using the real control system and digital twin to validate the operation of material handling systems and production layouts virtually.
