Streamline Industrial Machinery and Heavy Equipment Manufacturing

Boost profit margins and save time by starting the manufacturing planning process earlier with digital manufacturing software

To maximize profitability in industrial machinery and heavy equipment manufacturing, you need to think about the things that could go wrong and address them upstream during the planning process, before they result in excessive costs in production. Digital manufacturing allows manufacturing engineers to find inefficiencies earlier and optimize operations – in a virtual production environment – giving you the insight and flexibility to build products right the first time.

Siemens PLM Software’s digital manufacturing software has helped leading industrial machinery and equipment companies to maximize business performance by:

  • Creating comprehensive manufacturing plans
  • Improving planning collaboration
  • Defining and optimizing proposed manufacturing processes
  • Supporting effective communication with production and shop floor systems
  • Monitoring and controlling quality

Create Manufacturing Plans

You can prepare detailed manufacturing plans that link manufacturing processes to multiple machine configurations. This allows you to:

  • Support planning collaboration between manufacturing, engineering and suppliers
  • Define manufacturing bills of materials (MBOMs) linked to design engineering bills of materials (EBOMs)
  • Build manufacturing process plans and bills of process (BOPs) linked to MBOMs
  • Manage manufacturing plan data under full revision and configuration control in a secure environment

Define, Simulate and Optimize Manufacturing Processes

Use a range of application-specific tools to optimize part and assembly processes and production layouts:

  • Define and analyze production scenarios, new equipment purchases and placement in a 3D virtual plant
  • Create and verify computer numerical control (CNC) machining, robotics, automation equipment, and quality inspection programs
  • Use simulation tools to optimize manufacturing processes and system layouts
  • Visualize and optimize material flow and logistics, including equipment failures, to assess system robustness
  • Digitally simulate and assess manual worker processes, to study human factors and ergonomics

Learn how Doosan Infracore optimized material movement and reduced logistics costs with Tecnomatix.

Virtually Commission Production

You can identify and correct production and quality issues in a virtual production environment prior to launch. This allows you to:

  • Use virtual commissioning tools to fully execute and validate production system performance
  • Simulate and verify robot and automation equipment programs
  • Train shop floor personnel in a virtual environment

Learn how Eisenmann utilized Tecnomatix to shorten project delivery time for the New Doha International Airport automated flight service cart system.

Deliver Released Plans to Production

When you connect a managed product lifecycle management (PLM) environment for design and manufacturing planning directly to shop floor systems, you can:

  • Author, manage, and share electronic work instructions with your shop floor
  • Generate production-ready output for advanced machine tools
  • Integrate manufacturing engineering data with other shop floor automation systems
  • Deliver CNC work packages to the point of execution on the shop floor

Learn how ANDRITZ Ritz reduces machine idle times and minimized quality variations with NX CAM software and Shop Floor Connect for Teamcenter.

Monitor and Control Quality

You can gain a comprehensive view of the factory operation to identify production issues earlier and resolve them quicker, by:

  • Automating collection of quality data
  • Capturing production performance by program and/or plant
  • Validating that production results comply with design intent dimensional targets
  • Conducting root-cause analyses and reporting
