Unleashing the benefits: Convincing experts to embrace standardization in production systems

Defining a software as a standard tool doesn’t ensure its adequate usage. This blog shares how Bosch Powertrain Solutions tackled this topic by working on standards development, data consistency and training. It highlights the development of a standard library focusing on the involvement of new users and existing experts.

The empowering benefits of linking the digital twin of production online with real production

By linking the digital twin of production online with the real production, a completely new quality of data is generated within the material flow simulation model. This enables the unlocking of new use cases for planners and shop floor leaders.

Plant Simulation User Meeting "What's new" presentation

Welcome to the 2023 Tecnomatix Plant Simulation User Conference!

Discrete event simulation is a powerful tool used in many industries, including manufacturing, logistics, and healthcare. It involves modeling a system as a series of discrete events, such as the arrival of a customer or the start of a production run, and simulating how the system behaves over time. This allows analysts to study the system’s performance under different scenarios, identify bottlenecks and inefficiencies, and test new strategies for improvement. Plant Simulation software from Siemens is one of the leading platforms for discrete event simulation, and the annual user conference is a key event for experts in the field to share knowledge and insights.
