The Manufacturing Simulation ROI


Using Dynamic Simulation brings operations into a virtual environment, taking away all the risk of costly experimentation. Strategic plans can be thoroughly tested and optimized before implementation. Dynamic Simulation allows the user to:

  • Obtain integrated reporting and scenario analysis.
  • Gather feedback on efficiency gains both at the machine and resource level and throughout the system.
  • Make changes to the model during a simulation run.
  • Predict how operations will be affected by: changes in demand, disruptions in supply, changes in the product mix, etc.
  • Check and set optimal schedules.
  • Receive live updates for increased productivity control.
  • Analyze possible differences in efficiency based on automation versus manual labor.
  • Establish the best path for production to increase productivity and reduce non value-added time.
