Towards more dynamic factory layouts
Selling a production line for a manufacturer is never a straightforward process. Some players in the production layout simulation business, however, are saying that now if never is the time to shake off the idea of slow, rigid processes and start profiting from the more dynamic layout planning solutions available.
Companies of any size can benefit from 3D layout simulation
Production layout design used to be a game of only few players. “The way production lines were designed in the past was a bit of a mystery for many,” says Juha Renfors, CEO of Visual Components.
“We do not believe accurate, detailed production layout simulations should be the privilege of large companies that can afford to pay the high prices. Good simulation can be accessible and easy to use regardless of company size or simulation expertise.”
While, in the past, production layout design was in the hands of layout planning specialists, Visual Components created its solution for the mainstream. “Anyone can use our products,” says Renfors.
