Advantages/Benefits

Advantages

Increased Planning Productivity

  • Reuse certified processes and reduce capital equipment costs by capturing and managing within a single source of manufacturing knowledge.
  • Detect and eliminate problems within production systems that would otherwise require time-consuming and cost-intensive corrective measures during production ramp-up.
  • Reduce assembly planning tasks, planning time and their associated costs.
  • Sharing and analyzing information within a digital environment provides insight into the various stages of process development and the impacts of those processes.
  • Streamline communications so you can adapt to customer demands quicker, with decisions based on facts.

Optimized Manufacturing Productivity

  • Minimize capital investment and maximize long-term ROI through increased planning accuracy and efficiency.
  • Shorten time-to-volume production through the analysis of product manufacturability and process development.
  • Optimize the logistics and performance of entire production systems.
  • Optimize resource utilization and accelerate product launches with proven solutions for process optimization that cross multiple departments and disciplines.

Benefits

Increased Plant Productivity

  • Program information is available at all levels of the enterprise – from executive to plant floor personnel.
  • Achieve smaller launch windows, increased plant capacity and material cost control through comprehensive visibility into quality issues.
  • Reduce capital investment costs via commonization and reuse.

Single Source for Alignment and Accountability

  • Assembly and manufacturability validation provides accelerated feedback to design and process teams.
  • BOM/BOP configuration and management reduces planning errors by ensuring all components of a product are accounted for and aligned.
  • In-context collaboration and communication operate globally within the supply chain networks by coordinating workflow processes ensuring timing is maintained.
  • In-context collaboration and communication of workflow processes ensures that timing is extended throughout the global supply chain.

Optimize Performance & Leverage “Best Practice” processes

  • Reduce process development time up to 40% by identifying and applying best-in-class processes with master process and operation templates.
  • Achieve 20-to-80% reuse of certified manufacturing processes within the first year.
  • Significantly reduce and even eliminate production disruptions caused by manufacturing shop floor issues, by balancing processes for optimum value added content.
  • Optimized manufacturing lines through virtual commissioning to reduce time-to-volume by up to 80%

Managed Environment for Safety and Ergonomics

  • Reduce corporate liabilities and expenses for worker related injuries.
  • Eliminate hazardous work environments by integrating ergonomic simulation and validation into the development process.

3D Factory Design and Visualization

  • Reduce factory design time, from concept through installation, by up to 50% when compared to traditional 2D design methods.
  • Reduce tooling and equipment changes 15% by discovering design flaws and issues early in the creation phase, as opposed to later in the installation phase.

Factory Logistics Analysis and Optimization

  • Reduce material handling costs up to 70% by analyzing cost, time, and travel distances across multiple factory layouts.
  • Optimize space utilization at both the plant and transportation truck level by analyzing and evaluating material requirements, container sizes, container stacking criteria as well as ingress/egress guidelines.

Factory Production Throughput Simulation

  • Reduce throughput time as much as 20-60% by taking into consideration internal and external supply chains, production resources, and business processes.
  • Increase productivity for existing systems 15-20% with easy to interpret statistical analysis.
  • Decrease new system costs 5-20% by detecting and eliminating problems before having installed the real system.
  • Reduce inventories 20-60% by evaluating different line control strategies as well as verifying synchronization of lines and sub-lines.
