Rob cad is a work cell design and simulation tool that allows you to develop, simulate, optimize, validate, and offline program multi-device robotic and automated manufacturing processes, all within the context of configured product and resource data.
These full-action mockups of complete manufacturing cells and systems within a 3D environment provide a platform to optimize processes and calculate cycle times throughout the various stages of the development timeline, from concept through implementation.
Rob cad fully integrates core technologies and a powerful set of process-specific applications addressing a wide range of manufacturing processes including spot welding, arc welding, laser and water-jet cutting, painting and spraying, and material handling.
Planning an assembly line or station can be quite time consuming and requires a lot of discussions between different engineering departments.
Process Designer enables you to plan your assembly processes in a 3D collaborative environment. You can quickly and easily compare multiple alternative scenarios and select the most optimal process. You can also define the assembly sequence, choose the required tools and create the plant, line or station layout using an intuitive and configurable user interface. Perform line balancing by optimizing the assignment of processes to stations or workers, and have clear visibility of active and passive resources.
Process Simulate enables you to validate assembly plans virtually, from concept through to the start of production to help you mitigate these risks. The ability to leverage 3D data of products and resources facilitates virtual validation, optimization, and commissioning of complex manufacturing processes, resulting in faster launches and higher production quality.
Process Simulate can verify the feasibility of an assembly process by validating reach ability and collision clearance. This is done by simulating the full assembly sequence of the product and the required tools. Tools such as sections, measurements and collision detection allow the detailed verification and optimization of assembly scenarios.
Process Simulate is fully integrated with the Teamcenter platform, thus enabling manufacturing engineers to reuse, author and validate manufacturing processes. It facilitates simulation of assembly processes, human operations and mechanical procedures of tools, devices and robots.
Plant Simulation is a discrete-event simulation tool that helps you to create digital models of logistic systems (such as production), so that you can explore a system’s characteristics and optimize its performance
These digital models allow you to run experiments and what-if scenarios without disturbing existing production systems or – when used in the planning process – long before the real production systems are installed. Extensive analysis tools, such as bottleneck analysis, statistics and charts let you evaluate different manufacturing scenarios. The results provide you with the information needed to make fast, reliable, smarter decisions in the early stages of production planning.
