Product Lifecycle Management Australasia (PLMA) have announced the immediate availability of Plant Simulation, a software solution from Siemens PLM, that allows users to optimise throughput, relieve bottlenecks and minimise work-in-process in factories, warehouses and logistical operations.
Plant Simulation software enables users to create well-structured, hierarchical models of production facilities, lines and processes, as well as logistical operations and storage and warehousing operations. This is achieved through powerful object-oriented architecture and modelling capabilities that enable users to create and maintain highly complex systems, including advanced control mechanisms. The simulation models take into consideration the internal and external supply chains, production resources and business processes, allowing the individual to analyse the impact of different production variations.
Jens Schlueter, Chief Executive Officer of SpedIT states that Plant Simulation logistics simulation tool is capable of analysing the complex system behaviour and optimises it in a systematic manner. Plant Simulation has realised ROI in less than six months and cost savings of more than 30% in the first project.
Dennis Colusso, Director of PLMA says that Plant Simulation has proved to be an invaluable tool to many Siemens PLM customers in North America and Europe as well as in various industries like consumer-packaged-goods, food processing, logistics and supply chain, mining, automotive and automotive suppliers. Plant Simulation enables them to do “what if” type simulations and optimisations, on their operations before committing to a real world implementation.
PLMA will be holding free seminars on Plant Simulation in Melbourne. PLMA are distributors for the Siemens PLM suite of Product Lifecycle Management solutions.
