simulation engineeringWhat is Simulation Engineering? The simulation engineering or simulation modeling process involves making a computer-generated 3D model of a system, which can be a piece of equipment, warehouse, manufacturing plant, automotive component, or other system which allows you to identify and resolve potential issues, challenges and problems before they happen.

Simulation engineering also gives you the opportunity to test your planned work processes to see how they will play out once they’re implemented. Our lean manufacturing consulting firm uses manufacturing simulation and lean manufacturing simulation techniques to help our clients make important decisions and resolve complex engineering challenges using advanced technologies.

Utilizing our expert engineering services and industrial engineering solutions, you can have greater confidence in the plans you implement. You can also present an easy to understand model to others, such as investors, instead of explaining high-level concepts that are hard to grasp.

Manufacturing Simulation

If we’re utilizing plant simulation modeling for new construction, we’ll also consider the size and layout of the existing space.

Once we have the necessary information, we’ll set about building your 3D model. When the model is complete, testing begins. We’ll test a number of different functions and processes to determine whether the model meets your standards. After testing, we’ll provide you with a copy of the simulation as well as a comprehensive report explaining the results and making recommendations.

Applications and Benefits of Simulation Engineering

While virtually every industry can use simulation modeling for some purpose, here are a few common applications and benefits:

  • Transport Logistics: Fast and efficient shipments require an optimum workflow. Instead of planning and testing different options, simulating potential workflows allows you to determine the best possible solution for your shipping company.
  • Airports: Efficiency is also crucial when it comes to airport designs. Along with ensuring passengers can easily make it through each section of the airport easily, you’ll need to consider layouts for mechanical equipment and aircraft. A computer-generated model allows you to implement and test ideas before they’re put into action.
  • Plant Manufacturing: Planning a manufacturing plant is extremely complex; there are so many considerations to be made and one minor mistake can have a ripple effect throughout the process. Employing lean manufacturing simulation techniques ensures a smoother process because you’ll be able to see exactly how each component functions, both independently and in conjunction with others.
  • Automotive: Auto manufacturers are in a constant race to develop better, faster vehicles. Simulation enables manufacturers to test new drive systems, transmissions, and other components, while also allowing component tests for greater fuel efficiency.

3D modeling is also useful for warehouses, electronics manufacturing, aerospace design, service providers, shipbuilding, just to name a few.
