The word “simulation” is defined as “the imitation of the operation of a real-world process or system over time. ” With this definition in mind, it is easy to understand why simulation is ubiquitous in Engineering and Industrial organizations; imitating a real-world process or system allows experts to study the process or system they are interested in within a controlled, repeatable environment. Some typical examples include:
While simulation is well-established during product design and verification, industrial organizations typically do not employ this powerful methodology to the next stage of their value chain: manufacturing of the product. As a result, organizations lose opportunities to study the behavior of their manufacturing processes and systems before they are deployed. Since commissioning of new manufacturing facilities, production lines, and processes is often costly and capital-intensive, applying simulation methods to manufacturing can yield enormous benefits including:
Hyla Soft specializes in applying Simulation methods to manufacturing and production systems and processes. Our consultants can help your organization to identify opportunities to strategically employ simulation to study manufacturing processes and systems, giving your teams the information to drive improvements.
