Value stream mapping
The optimization of a production process begins with a comprehensive analysis of the actual state, e.g. through value stream mapping. In many companies this is still done on paper. The records are then digitalized to check the processes.
This detour is now no longer necessary: With SimVSM, the process design approaches the production line directly. All the value-adding elements, such as production parameters as well as material and information flows, are directly recorded by the planners onto a tablet. The unique feature of the mobile solution is the linkage of the app with a simulation software in the background: A web service transfers models directly to the simulation server at the push of a button.
This calculates characteristic parameters such as the exact utilization of the system or the throughput and shows the results of this analysis within a few seconds. Possible optimizations can thus be seen and implemented directly at the production line. This saves valuable time and money.
Adjustments within a short period of time
SimVSM is platform-independent and therefore available on practically every industrial tablet. Since the analysis is completely digital, changes can be implemented in the shortest possible time: drag& drop enables customers to record, document and simulate their complex value streams.
After the analysis, the user can generate alternatives to the existing solution at the push of a button and compare the options. A large number of different parameters can be recorded and changed manually.
