Detailed 3D factory simulation model in Plant Simulation software.

Why Plant Simulation Foundation?

Create 3D digital models of your production system and shop floor logistics. Run statistical simulation experiments to validate and optimize material flow, throughput and overall system performance with a high level of confidence prior to production.

Simulate, validate and optimize
Enable the creation of 3D visualization models (up to 500 objects) for simulation, validation and optimization of production systems and processes with our Plant Simulation Foundation software. Optimize material flow, resource utilization and logistics for all levels of plant planning—from global production facilities through local plants to specific lines.

Explore and analyze
Accurately model logistics systems (production) to explore their characteristics and optimize their performance. The digital model enables you to run experiments and what-if scenarios without disturbing an existing production system or—when used in the planning process—long before the real system is installed. Extensive analysis tools, statistics and charts let you evaluate different manufacturing scenarios and make fast, reliable decisions in the early stages of production planning.

Access these key features

  • Create hierarchical models of complex facilities, assembly lines and processes, including advanced control mechanisms, using object-oriented architecture and modeling capabilities
  • Visualize and animate online in 3D based on the ISO-standard JT format
  • Generate graphical outputs for analysis of throughput, resource utilization, automatic bottleneck detection, Sankey diagrams and statistics
  • Analyze and optimize energy usage for machines, assembly lines and production systems
The accurate results of Plant Simulation eliminate the need for large buffers, saving approximately $2,000,000 by having one conveyor and one high-bay warehouse for 5,000 refrigerators.
