  • Factory Design and Process Optimisation – Executed Simultaneously in AutoCAD

    Quickly build a spatially accurate layout and process simulation model simultaneously all within AutoCAD, using Factory Design Assets and the ProModel AutoCAD Add-in. Simulate the scaled model directly in AutoCAD with the click of a button. View results in the Output Viewer and easily make, test and validate layout and process changes in AutoCAD. Finalise the model, then view it in 3D with Inventor® and ProModel 3D Animator.

5 Steps to Success in ProModel

  1. Create an AutoCAD layout with Factory Assets. Then create the process model using flows and other functions from the ProModel Ribbon in the AutoCAD menu.
  2. Press “Simulate” and watch your animated model directly in AutoCAD.
  3. View dynamic model output metrics and run “What-If” scenarios. Compare and contrast your “What-If” scenarios in automatically generated reports that display the KPI’s that define an optimised system.
  4. From the process optimisation, make any required changes in AutoCAD, then simulate again to confirm the improved results.
  5. Open the optimised model in Inventor for a 3D model.

Customer Success

Flanagan Industries is a major contract manufacturer of aerospace hardware specialising in highly engineered and high value machined components and assemblies.

Over the years their manufacturing operations had been growing steadily to the point where they absolutely needed additional capacity . The original space was not conducive to a manufacturing environment and had become an impediment to taking on more business and staying competitive in the global economy. So Flanagan decided to expand by opening a new facility that could house bigger and better machinery, however they needed to ensure that the move to the new location would not disrupt their current operations and customer orders.

Watch the video to see how Flanagan used a ProModel Simulation Solution to successfully bring their new facility online.
