Plant Simulation is a discrete event simulation software used for logistics planning and manufacturing throughput analysis.

It is an object oriented and 3D modelling tool used to perform discrete event simulation and value stream mapping.

RobotExpert is a robotic simulation and offline programming software that helps manufacturers plan and manage their industrial robotic systems efficiently.

The software can virtually optimise robotic processes thereby reducing system setup time, minimising downtime and increasing throughput for shop floor robots.

“Industry data shows that manufacturers can increase logistics system productivity by as much as 20 per cent through the use of plant simulation software. While robotic simulation can increase throughput for shop floor robots, helping to boost their productivity” said Tom Hoffman, director of marketing, Manufacturing Engineering Software. “By offering a free 30-day trial, we help manufacturers learn and explore how their businesses can benefit from the use of Tecnomatix digital manufacturing applications.”
