Designing and Optimizing Factories

By Markus Erlmann

The Plant Simulation User Conference 2009 was a very interesting conference with 110 customers participating and 10 of them presenting the usage and success they achieve with Plant Simulation. Additional presentations from development and marketing as well as live demonstrations were shown during the conference.

The first session of the Plant Simulation User Conference was done by Jeff Miller, Tecnomatix Marketing Manager. He provided an overview about the Plant Design and Optimization solution. Plant Simulation is a major component of this solution.


The use of the Plant Design and Optimization solution enables you to design factories in 3D (which is actually faster than the design in 2D due to smart objects). In addition to the design, the simulation and optimization of the material flow is a major benefit.
