Keynote abstract:

Many manufacturers are revisiting their production strategies. Line based production technology while being very predictable and efficient, have shortcomings when it comes to high number of product variants on the line or when changes in production programs are required. New ideas of matrix productions, flexible production cells, reconfigurable production scenarios are being explored and implemented today. While flexibility and speed of change increases, the predictability in such scenarios tends to suffer without using proper methodology. We are going to show how the Digital Twin of the Production System can help to design production systems for flexibility, explore different production control strategy and strike a balance of flexibility and achieving production KPIs.

Instructor Led Training abstract:

In this class we will teach you how to animate your objects during simulation and use the newly added Poses tab to do so. You will learn about the newly released freely moving Transporters; traveling without Tracks, learn how to estimate costs using the new Cost tab, and as time permits, we will review how to apply the most favorable distribution using data collected from production. We will also spend a few minutes introducing you to the various training paths available from Siemens, such as Services and our new Learning as a Service (LaaS) options.
