Simulate Shop Floor Capacity, Throughput & Bottlenecks
Performance of individual resources on the shop floor or in logistics operations may be modeled at a detailed level. This is particular useful in planning for or monitoring a contract manufacturing operation.In this example, a biological manufacturing and filling process is simulated to analyze capacity, throughput and bottlenecks. This allows plant and process designs to exceed FDA regulations. This is an example of a sterile manufacturing cycle that includes sterilization, steam-in-place (SIP) activity, that must be done within 24 hrs. prior to production, and cleaning, clean-in-place (CIP), following it.
Models for sterile manufacturing with both robotic cart systems and conveyor systems are supported.
