The assignment is to investigate different software and internal requirements for simulation of manual work, both for transport, material presentation and assembly balancing.
To optimize usage of labor, aisles and have an optimized layout we need simulation possibilities to take correct decisions early in different changes. The Simulation need to support different aspects due to complex factory need (traffic, balance in production, material presentation etc.)
To test and validate different production changes we need a tool to simulate both flows, layout and labor, a next step in our digital twin!
