Through the 3D simulation of an industrial facility, you will receive an evaluation of various planning alternatives, transparency in the planning process, great reliability in planning, short planning cycles and lead times as well as security for your investment decisions. The required system behaviour is greatly influenced by many factors such as plant parameters, interface problems and product variations. You will find out to some extent during the launch or ongoing operation whether an industrial facility is really working 100% smoothly and without error. We have already obtained preliminary findings about shortcomings or software bugs by combining the simulation model with the real control. A subsequent operation is, therefore, smooth and minimises the costs. This improvement in quality also increases customer satisfaction!
