SimPlan presents innovative simulation solutions at the Hannover Fair 2018
The portfolio of the simulation expert SimPlan ranges from process simulation and virtual commissioning to the creation of digital twins of production and logistics processes. SimPlan offers several innovative innovations at this year’s Hanover Fair:
The analysis tool SimPath, which is based on the simulation software Plant Simulation, supports planners and operators in the evaluation of material flows in complex conveyor systems. Data can be read in from the real system and the movements of the conveyed goods can be traced and visually evaluated using a 3D animation of past processes. For example, both the routing of individual containers and the total volume of line loads in a logistics system can be analyzed over time in order to identify possible bottlenecks and develop solutions for them.

With the SimVSM Basic and SimVSM Expert versions, SimPlan now provides two apps in the Apple and Microsoft app stores with which value stream mapping (VSM) can be digitized. The SimVSM App provides the functions of clipboard, paper and stopwatch in a contemporary form on a tablet. In the Expert version of the app, the modelled value streams can be transferred to a simulation server in order to obtain key figures such as processing times or stocks within seconds on the mobile device, taking into account the dynamic interactions.
Use of the SimVSM app to model value streams on a tablet or pad.
You will find SimPlan at the Hessian joint stand Industrie 4.0 in hall 8, A31.
