Designing and maintaining optimal efficiency of production operations is a challenge without the ability to accurately predict the real-world performance of manufacturing plans. How to use plant simulation technology to achieve peak production performance was the headline theme during the 2014 Plant Simulation Worldwide User Conference in Stuttgart, Germany last May.
The 2014 Plant Simulation Worldwide User Conference was an exhibition of digital manufacturing innovation and knowledge; over 100 attendees representing 37 companies from 17 countries discussed what is possible with the Plant Simulation product in the Tecnomatix portfolio. Plant Simulation helps manufacturers model and simulate production systems in order to optimize flow, resource utilization, logistics, and energy usage.
Leading companies shared how to boost profitability by gaining the right insight to pinpoint and eliminate costly inefficiencies from existing operations – as well as predict and optimize the performance of new process designs – with the Plant Simulation.
These are some of the many achievements that were shared:
