Factory Design Suite 2014: 

Top manufacturers adapt to change faster. Discover how.

Factories need to adapt to change constantly to meet demand, reduce costs and improve the quality of products. So, how do some handle change better?


Discover the tools that top manufacturers use to improve the design and development of their production systems.


Top manufacturers:

  • Check existing sites accurately – they use laser scanning to get more accurate representation of ‘as-is’ states
  • Design more efficiently – they move between 2D and 3D modeling to represent designs better and increase workflow efficiency
  • Optimize layouts – they use digital simulation to analyze the flow through the production system and optimize equipment placement
  • Review projects more thoroughly – they create 3D models to improve collaboration with customers and make changes early in the design process
  • Look ahead – they use clash analysis to pre-empt potential issues before installation


Register for the Adraft webinar on October 9th discover one of the many ways you can improve your next factory-change project
