Webinar: Improving Work-Cell Ergonomics and Throughput

By Stephanie Aldrete

Register now and join us on Monday, June 15, at 4 PM EDT (1 PM PDT / 10:00 PM CEST) for the IEEE-hosted webinar, “Improving work-cell ergonomics and throughput.”

Electronics assembly can be delivered competitively only if the manufacturing process is continuously improved. With the help of smart manufacturing technology, manufacturing companies are mastering a high degree of variance, the continuously shrinking batch sizes, and order volume fluctuations that are increasingly difficult to predict. Simulation is ubiquitous in engineering and industrial organizations to “imitate” a real-world process or system.

This webinar describes how manufacturing planners can use simulation of human movement and spatial risk, cobot simulation and automated process simulation to optimize throughput, safety and cost in work-cell or system assembly cells within electronics manufacturing organizations.

Key Takeaways

  • Learn how manufacturing planners can optimize work-cell or system assembly cells using various simulation methods
  • Discover how simulation technology is utilized by electronics manufacturing organizations to improve throughput, safety and cost
  • Understand how simulation of cobots and automated processes can optimize operations without affecting production
