df_softwareThe pla­ning and simu­la­ti­on of a fac­to­ry is high­ly inter­di­sci­pli­na­ry. Invol­ving many dif­fe­rent plan­ners and depart­ments is the grea­test chal­len­ge for a factory.

During the last years the working method chan­ged from the 2D drawing to a digi­tal 3D-model. This allows the inte­gra­ti­on of 3D-design data, like robot cells, pro­duc­tion lines or working sta­ti­ons, in the layout.

Con­se­quent­ly, these in the past sepa­ra­ted depart­ments, rela­ting to your data manage­ment, con­ti­nue to grow tog­e­ther.The main­ten­an­ce and con­sul­ta­ti­on of indi­vi­du­al and par­al­lel models have chan­ged, so the indi­vi­du­al depart­ments crea­te only the data, they are respon­si­ble for. The­se data are pro­vi­ded on a cen­tral data­ba­se, to which the respon­si­ble depart­ments can access online and in real time.

Sin­ce the data inte­gri­ty has hig­hest prio­ri­ty, all employees invol­ved in the plan­ning pro­cess necessa­ri­ly use the basic soft­ware of the com­pa­ny, inclu­ding their con­fi­gu­ra­ti­on. A free choice of soft­ware is impos­si­ble. This ensu­res 100% error-free data exchan­ge in the nati­ve format.

For plan­ning a digi­tal fac­to­ry a basic sys­tem is advan­ta­ge­ous: we use Micro­Sta­ti­on by Bent­ley Sys­tems Inc. with its various spe­cia­li­zed app­li­ca­ti­ons. Micro­Sta­ti­on is used in this seg­ment in Ger­ma­ny for more than 20 years.
