Advanced computer technology has so many amazing applications, particularly when it comes to engineering. Simulation engineering is just one emerging technology that can be applied to your business in a multitude of ways. This process involves making a computer-generated 3D model of a system, which can be a piece of equipment, warehouse, manufacturing plant, automotive component, among many others.
By utlizing simulation engineering or simulation modeling, you can solve problems before they happen by identifying potential issues. You can also test your planned work processes to see how they will play out once they’re implemented. Design Systems, Inc. uses manufacturing simulation and lean manufacturing simulation techniques to help our clients make important decisions with tangible information and results instead of guesswork.
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.
Industries That Use Simulation Engineering
While virtually every industry can use simulation modeling for some purpose, here are a few common applications:
- 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.
Before we begin, we like to sit down with our clients to discuss their wants and needs. We’ll go over the goals for the manufacturing simulation or simulation modeling you’re requesting, as well as which milestones you’d like to meet with the finished piece of equipment, process, or structure. 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.
