Factory simulation before build commences

By 4Manufacturing(R) 25/06/2020

The University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) has developed a virtual simulation model of the new Boeing Sheffield facility.

 The model will help to validate the opportunities Boeing has to increase productivity by up to 50 per cent. 

As part of the Smart Factory research project, the AMRC are working on
for Boeing, its Manufacturing Intelligence Group has worked closely with
the Boeing team to create a virtual simulation model using Discrete Event Simulation (DES) techniques to examine the potential capabilities of their new factory and to validate opportunities for increasing productivity.
