Software-supported holistic optimization of plant structures.
Factory planning in the 21st century
Factory planning projects are often very complex, as many different areas are involved in the planning and each area wants to achieve its optimum for itself. Conventional factory planning methods, such as creating block layouts with the help of cut-out blocks, quickly reach their limits here, as they cannot optimize a factory structure holistically. In order to achieve the global optimum in your factory, we use the visTABLE® software.
With the help of these, material flow relationships can be overlaid for entire plants in order to enable the areas to be optimally arranged. This ensures that the overall arrangement is value stream-oriented and thus complies with the LEAN principles. In addition to this, visTABLE® offers the possibility to visualize factories in 3D.
With the help of virtual reality, it is possible to get a feel for your factory of the future and, if necessary, to make adjustments before implementation.
ifp consulting has been using visTABLE® for many years and is regularly represented at the manufacturer’s user meetings.
Our know-how enables us to set up a visTABLE® model of your factory in a targeted manner and to simulate various future scenarios. By iterative adaptation of the factory concepts, your individual factory is ultimately created, which represents the global optimum under the given boundary conditions.
