Assembly processes and material flows are complex issues. Our simulation tools aim to make your manufacturing system manageable and comprehensible. Increase your productivity and benefit from resources, in order to reduce costs and optimise the working conditions for your employees.
- Human Simulation
- Material flow simulation
- Machine simulation
With these building blocks, we are able to set up a virtual representation of your production facility. Your individual requirements determine the level of detail - from examining basic concepts, to a fully functional digital twin of your facility.
Benefits and goals of the digital factory are increased efficiency, improved planning quality, an abridged product launch and standardised planning processes.
External observation has often resulted in significant changes being implemented. As external project management consultants, Plan B benefits from not being directly involved in operational hierarchies. You will be surprised how quickly we familiarise ourselves with your company, your systems and the characteristics of your production. We assume overall responsibility and open communication paths, despite sometimes awkward issues. Close integration with the team has always proved to be a guarantee for success.
Our actions are always project-related and in consequence inter-divisional. We consider individual, operational framework conditions, deadlines, costs and resources and achieve agreed project targets by providing professional stimuli and motivating the existing team.
White Paper »Assembly Planning«
Assembling represents the core business of many companies. In order to ensure maximum benefit and efficiency, optimal planning is required. To gain competitive advantage, it is essential for a company to have flexibility of manufacture, be able to prompt new product variants and also to react quickly to quantity changes. The investment both in assembly systems and the related IT-technology should be characterised by long-term-usability and variablity. Fundamental requirements such as efficiency, ergonomics and energy efficiency are afforded equal focus in order to achieve 100% product quality.
Planning and construction of assembly systems is a complex and profound matter. Our free white paper "Assembly Planning in Practice - the Plan B Method" will provide a comprehensive overview and summarise key elements and the essential procedure.
