Robotics & Automation

Virtually simulate and optimize robotic and automated systems.

Across all major industries, market pressures and structural costs are requiring manufacturers to build flexibility into their production facilities. Individual plants need to increase the number of products they can build while exceeding their current quality targets and optimizing their shop floor footprint.

The Robotics and Automation Planning solution enables manufacturers to virtually develop, simulate and commission robotic and automated manufacturing systems, including highly automated plants with a variable production mix. Multiple engineering disciplines use the solution’s virtual environment to plan and validate manufacturing systems that range from single workcells to complete production lines. The solution’s Process Simulate Robotics capabilities facilitate virtual commissioning by supporting offline validation of production tooling equipment at the system level.

The Robotics and Automation Planning solution enables manufacturers to build more flexibility into their manufacturing operations by optimizing robotic systems so they support all aspects of product and process variation.

CAPABILITIES:
  • Ability to coordinate workcell through station-level development
  • Ability to handle robot garden manufacturing configurations
