Virtual Manufacturing, a supplier of lean-based production development services, and value-added reseller of Visual Components solutions; understands the power of simulation in production.
In this case study, we’ll review a project they recently completed to drive sales of their lean manufacturing products, using the Visual Components Experience app.
About Virtual Manufacturing
“Our goal is to improve the customer’s production system,” explained William Falkenström, a consultant with the Assembly and Production Flow team at Virtual Manufacturing. “This can range from corporate cultural transformation to robotic simulation and programming.
The Swedish-based company employs about 70 workers and consists of four divisions: Industrial Management, Assembly & Production Flow, Robotics & Automation, and Lean Manufacturing Products (LMP).
Virtual Manufacturing uses simulation frequently in client engagements. Whether the project is to design a new robot cell or optimize a business process, 3D manufacturing simulation software plays an essential part in their consulting toolkit.
“We believe that in order to bring value in production, we need to be working in a 3D environment to increase understanding and communicate concepts,” said William.
Virtual Manufacturing doesn’t just use this technology for client engagements; they also use it to market their own solutions. William was recently involved in a project to improve communication and sales of shooter wagons, a product distributed by the LMP division. LMP, which manufactures and sells customer specific solutions for lean production systems, wanted the ability to present a 3D simulation of their shooter wagons from their mobile devices.
