What’s New in Learning Advantage? Plant Simulation – Getting Started!

By Jennifer Bradford

Surely I’m not the only one who thought all those countless hours playing The Sims would prove to be important to my career? While The Sims might have been great practice for building your dream zillion-square-foot compound and antagonizing your housemates, it falls a bit short when it comes to planning for industrial-scale logistics, material handling and throughput. For that, you’ll need to check out Tecnomatix Plant Simulation. Whether it is an airport trying to improve passenger baggage handling systems, or a wind turbine manufacturer trying to find more efficient ways to build their turbines, Plant Simulation helps reduce costs and increase productivity.
