Plant Simulation

Tecnomatix - Plant Simulation

Simulate and optimize production systems and processes with Tecnomatix® Plant Simulation software. Optimize material flow, resource utilization and logistics at every level of plant planning. Simulate a single assembly line, an entire plant, or a global network of manufacturing facilities.

Solve production snags before they become outflow problems. Identify the most efficient production and delivery logistics before raw materials start moving through your facility. Even before that, make sure your blueprints call for the optimum use of every square foot of your plant before you spend the first dollar on construction.

You can do all of that and more with Tecnomatix® Plant Simulation. As its name implies, Plant Simulation allows you to construct digital models of your logistic systems that simulate the systems’ characteristics and helps you to optimize their performance. Looking to run what-if scenarios without disturbing an existing production system? No problem. Plant Simulation can help. Also, when used as part of the planning process, Plant Simulation helps you to head off the inevitable design snags and hiccups that otherwise don’t appear until after a plant is built. Additionally, by using the extensive analytical tools, statistics, and charts, you’ll be able to evaluate different manufacturing scenarios and to make fast, reliable decisions in the early stages of production planning.

Plant Simulation helps users:

  • Detect and eliminate problems that otherwise would require cost- and time-consuming corrective measures during production ramp-up
  • Minimize the investment cost of production lines without jeopardizing required output
  • Optimize the performance and energy usage of existing production systems by taking measures that have been verified in a simulation environment prior to implementation Modeling manufacturing


  • Improve productivity of existing facilities by as much as 20 percent
  • Reduce investment in planning new facilities by as much as 20 percent
  • Cut inventory and throughput time by as much as 60 percent
  • Optimize system dimensions, including buffer sizes
  • Reduce investment risks through early proof of concept
  • Maximize use of manufacturing resources
  • Improve production line design and schedule
