Innovation and continuous improvement have always been at the heart of the automotive industry. With growing vehicle production program costs, manufacturers and suppliers rely on simulation software to support continuous improvement, maximize productivity, reduce costs and respond to changing customer demand.
SIMUL8 process simulation software enables automotive manufacturers to create a digital representation that mimics the behavior of a manufacturing system.
The simulation can be utilized to highlight any problems or bottlenecks and to test improvements to the existing system or proposed designs. By thoroughly evaluating the impact of these changes in a risk-free, virtual environment, simulation provides the evidence to make confident decisions, before investment and implementation.
