Aerospace & Defence
Aerospace and Defence has unique challenges, from designing and manufacturing small high volume components through to the static build of large complex structures for use on land, air and sea. We have supplied simulation solutions to some of the largest aerospace and defence contractors in the world to help them design and manufacture better products more safely and efficiently.
- Applying Jack human simulation software to help design products that are easier, safer and faster for soldiers to deploy and also ensuring workers can safely access, reach, see and fit parts during assembly and maintenance.
- Using Plant Simulation to simulate manufacturing and supply chain operations, from detailed, manual intensive, static build of structures to the logistics of supply and withdrawal of equipment from battlefields in order to validate operations and mitigate risk.
- Simulating and offline programming robot cells for drilling and riveting robots using Process Simulate.
The Tecnomatix suite of Siemens PLM products can be applied within the Aerospace and Defence Industry to provide solutions for a wide variety of problems relating to manufacturing, product design and supply chain logistics.
The Siemens Tecnomatix products that have added value to our Aerospace and Defence customers include:
- Plant Simulation:
Tecnomatix Plant Simulation enables the modelling and simulating of Manufacturing, distribution and logistics processes. Using Plant Simulation, you can optimise material flow, resource utilisation and logistics for all levels of logistics planning from global manufacturing and supply chain logistics, through to local operations.
Tecnomatix Jack is an ergonomics and human factors product that can help the automotive industry improve the ergonomics of product designs and workplace tasks.This software enables users to position biomechanically accurate digital humans of various sizes in virtual environments, assign them tasks and analyse their performance. Jack (and Jill) digital humans can tell engineers what they can see and reach, how comfortable they are, when and why they’re getting hurt, when they’re getting tired and other important ergonomics information.
Tecnomatix Robot simulation enables the design, simulation, optimisation, analysis and off-line programming of robot systems and virtual validation of manufacturing processes prior to the start of production.
- Facility Analysis:
Tecnomatix facility analysis tools (FactoryCAD Factory FLOW) gives you everything you need to create detailed, intelligent warehouse models by allowing you to work with “smart objects” that represent virtually all the resources used in a Warehouse. In addition, Factory FLOW FactoryFLOW enables engineers to optimise layouts based on material flow distances, frequency, and costs.
