AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY – ASSEMBLY LINES

Scope of the simulation 

  • Mapping of all manual stations and automatic processes, including front stoppers, main stoppers and release sensors 

  • Mapping of conveyor lines, workpiece carriers and driverless transport vehicles 

  • Mapping of test benches and reworking stations 

 

General conditions 

  • Versatile assembly plant with individual processing time 

  • Non-linear manufacturing structure with cycles for rework processes 

  • Statically incalculable cycle losses due to multiple runners as a result of rework processes 

  • Restrictions on manual stations through a limited number of workers 

 

Results

  • Validation of the planned output 

  • Verification of chaining concepts 

  • Optimisation of rework strategies 

  • Optimisation of the number of conveying tools 

  • Investigation of variant-dependent bottlenecks
