Plant Simulation (formerly eM-Plant, Simple++) is a standard software for the simulation of highly complex production systems and control strategies.
The tool features object-oriented, graphic and integrated modelling, simulation and animation of systems and business processes. It is an important component and entry tool for the Digital Factory in the software portfolio of Siemens Digital Industries Software.
You can find detailed information about Plant Simulation, the different licence types and offers on our website www.Plant-Simulation.de. There you can also download a free trial version.
Typical questions that Plant Simulation can help to answer
- How can investment costs be minimised?
- Is the required output reached?
- What happens in case of quantity changes?
- How can stocks be reduced?
- What is the best control strategy?
- What effect do rush orders have?
- What is the best planning alternative?
- and many more
Plant Simulation offers different statistics for model parameters: Interval statistics, overall statistics and momentary statistics. Comprehensive analysis tools such as automatic bottleneck analysis, Sankey diagram and Gantt chart (planning chart)
Structure / Modules
All Plant Simulation basic and user modules are visible and accessible in the modular library, which can be configured freely. Arbitrary user modules are graphically and interactively created from basic modules by the user himself. These include:
- Integrated neuronal networks
- Factor analysis
- Experiment administration
- Automated optimisation of system parameters
- Batch size and sequence planning (sequencing)
Integration / Interfaces
Interfaces open Plant Simulation for integration purposes. Thereby it is important that data cannot only be exchanged at the beginning and the end but also during the simulation period, and that Plant Simulation can be manipulated and controlled by other programs (ARIS, ActiveX, C DDE, Mailbox, ODBC (e.g. MS Access), Socket SQL (e.g. ORACLE, MS SQL Server)).
Manufacturers / supplier
SimPlan AG is official sales partner of Siemens Digital Industries Software, which develops Plant Simulation. SimPlan is also the only Academic partner of Siemens within Germany for all Tecnomatix products and thus the exclusive sales partner in Germany for all non-profit licenses (use only for non-economic purposes).
The different license types, the range of functions and the system requirements can be viewed in detail on our product page www.plant-simulation.
