Why was SIMUL8 chosen as the best simulation software solution for Plexus?
"We chose SIMUL8's simulation software for Plexus as it was cost effective, required minimal coding background, and gave us extraordinary power with simple setup.
The development and sales teams at SIMUL8 were also very helpful and provided a wealth of simulation and process improvement knowledge both before and after coming on-site to train us."
"In terms of using SIMUL8 versus value stream maps or other lean tools, the major advantage of simulation modeling is the fact that they can be easily updated, changed or added to at any time.
Simulation enables us to create multiple scenarios where we can test our assumptions, validate variances between processes, and see how our distributions affect our manufacturing line. It also allows us to blatantly see any issues in the process versus having to find them."
