Process Simulate

A digital manufacturing solution for manufacturing process verification in a virtual 3D environment, Process Simulate is a major enabler of speed-to-market. It accomplishes this by helping manufacturing organizations to validate their manufacturing concepts from the outset and throughout the lifecycles of new products they introduce. The takeaways here are faster launches and higher production quality as the 3D data produced for products and resources help groups to validate, optimize, and commission complex manufacturing processes.

A Valuable Tool for Your Business

As products and manufacturing processes become increasingly more complex, they present world-class manufacturers with increasingly more complex challenges in the “time-to-market” and asset optimization segments of their businesses. Their engineering teams are charged with the responsibilities of delivering flawless new product launches and adhering to cost, quality and start-of-production targets. To meet such challenges, leading manufacturers virtually validate their manufacturing processes upfront by drawing upon both their organizational knowledge and the availability of 3D models of products and resources. As technology evolves, they can ensure upfront production optimization by efficiently and almost automatically conducting thousands of validation experiments.

Through its 3D dynamic environment, Process Simulate makes it easy for business leaders to design and validate their manufacturing processes. Process Simulate enables engineers to re-use, author and validate manufacturing processes by integrating completely with the manufacturing backbone. Its advanced 3D environment emulates realistic behaviors of manufacturing processes and provides the optimization of cycle times and process sequence. Additionally, it enables simulation in various areas such as assembly processes, human operations and the mechanical procedures of tools, devices and robots. Highly scalable, Process Simulate provides a variety of engineering disciplines the data and toolset that allows for the examination and verification of detailed processes in different phases and perspectives.
